The attorneys in the Beermann Family Law Appellate practice group have long been recognized as highly skilled in briefing, arguing and advising on a wide variety of family law issues that arise at the appellate court level. Our attorneys regularly serve as appellate counsel for individuals in family law appeals before the state appellate courts of Illinois, including the Illinois Supreme Court, both in cases where we represented our client in the lower court and in cases where we have been brought into the case specifically because of our substantial appellate experience. We work closely with trial counsel and our clients to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of potential appeals, and to present the best possible arguments on appeal to maximize the chances for success.
Our skilled appellate attorneys are extremely familiar with the intricacies of the appeals process and have efficiently and effectively navigated hundreds of appeals through the appellate courts. Each appellate attorney understands what it takes to win on appeal: powerful brief writing, persuasive oral arguments, and mastery of the trial court record and appellate court rules. We work collaboratively to develop persuasive arguments on critical issues that are thoroughly researched, clearly and persuasively written, and effectively delivered.
