Appellate

The Scheller Law Group has substantial experience representing clients in civil appeals before the Illinois Supreme Court, the Illinois Appellate Courts, and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Success in this specialized arena requires thoughtful legal analysis, persuasive writing, and the ability to present an effective oral argument.

We navigate our clients through the appellate process after representing them in the trial courts, and also represent new clients who retain us solely to conduct their appeal.

Our representative experience includes:

  • Successfully argued appeals in the Illinois Supreme Court and the Illinois Appellate Court on behalf of a major retailer involved in a class action lawsuit which arose out of the retailer’s practice of collecting sales tax on shipping charges for internet purchases.

  • Successfully defended hospitals in appeals relating to medical peer review, and privileging and credentialing disputes.

  • Represented national higher education associations as amici curiae (friend of the court) in an appeal involving the privacy rights in student education records.

  • Successfully defended State of Illinois employees in a lawsuit alleging breach of fiduciary duties.

  • Represented clients in disputes involving Section 1983 claims, eminent domain, property disputes, and attorneys’ fees claims.
