We’re your advocate when courts take a second look.

Appeals are an important part of the judicial process, allowing for review of the decisions made by the trial court. Whether the trial court entered judgment for or against you, that judgment is subject to appeal. If you or your client has a case on appeal, you need an advocate with a deep understanding of appellate practice and procedure.

Results. Goldenberg Heller & Antognoli’s team of appellate lawyers are experienced in representing clients in appeals, including in the Supreme Court and Appellate Court of Illinois and Missouri, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh and Eighth Circuits. We have a track record of success for our clients, both as the appellant (the one appealing) and the appellee (the one responding). Some recent examples include:
