Federal and State Appeals


When appealing a decision by a lower court, there are many factors to consider. Most importantly, an appeal is only successful if it can be shown that the trial court made an error either legally or factually. Additionally, an appellate decision can affect not only the individual case, but it may have a much greater impact and possibly influence an entire industry. Tomlinson & Shapiro, P.C. has skilled and knowledgeable attorneys who review each case and identify complex issues that may lead to a successful appeal. We represent parties on appeals in Illinois and federal courts – both in cases we handled at the trial level and as appellate counsel brought in after a judgment in a lower court. We invite you to call our Chicago office at 312-715-8770 to make an appointment for a complimentary consultation.
