Experienced Appellate Attorney In Cook County
When a verdict is handed down by a lower court, that is not necessarily the end of the case. For example, when a negligent party is ordered to pay civil damages in a personal injury case, they often appeal the ruling to a higher court, hoping to have it overturned. Appeals may also be filed by an injured party if they are not satisfied with the ruling of the lower court.
Sinson Law Group has extensive experience representing clients who have been injured as a result of the recklessness or negligence of another party. Attorney Kent Sinson has practiced in the Chicago area for nearly three decades. Kent is a former Cook County prosecutor, and he has in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of the Illinois state and federal court system. Kent understands the appeals process and what it takes to prevail when your case goes to a higher court.
An Ounce Of Prevention
Kent and his team approach every case with the assumption that the opposing party will eventually appeal. We thoroughly review the details of the case to identify any and all issues that could become grounds for an appeal. Once these issues are identified, we address them by preparing rock-solid arguments during the initial trial. This vastly reduces the chances of a successful appeal, making it less likely that one will be filed in the first place.
Despite our best efforts, some cases end up being appealed to a higher court. When this occurs, we are there to aggressively defend the verdict we have won on behalf of our clients at the lower level. Appellate work differs somewhat from trial practice, as it tends to focus on more technical and complex legal issues. This is where our initial preparation often pays off. Since many of these issues would have already been effectively addressed at the lower court, the appellant faces an uphill battle if they decide to appeal.
