Though we have many fine judges in Illinois, they cannot be correct every time, and the law is sometimes subject to change. If your business finds itself on the wrong side of a trial court judgment, Eric can help you determine if you have grounds for appeal and shepherd the case through the appellate courts. If another party appeals a judgment in your favor, he can assist you in defending the appeal. As set forth in another area of the site, Eric has a great deal of appellate experience.
