Illinois Appellate Attorney
When a trial ends in an unfavorable result, and there is a belief that an error made during the trial led to that result, an appeal may be made. Appeals are handled differently than trials, and an attorney must be experienced in this unique area of the law in order to achieve success. At the Giacoletto Law Office in Collinsville, we are experienced helping people in the St. Louis area and Southern Illinois achieve favorable results in criminal and civil appeals.

If you want to appeal the court's decision or defend against an appeal, we can guide you through the appellate process. We represent clients in civil appeals of all types, including:
- Personal injury
- Family law and divorce
- Business law
We also provide criminal appeal representation in cases involving felonies and misdemeanors of all types, such as DUI, drug crimes and weapons offenses.
There are no juries in appeals. There is no testimony. There are no opening and closing arguments. In appeals, the battle is fought on paper. Legal arguments must be made in written form. They must be thorough and they must be backed up with facts and knowledge of the law. They must be able to convince a judge. We know how to achieve this goal, and we have achieved it many times before.
Whether you are an individual seeking an appellate attorney, or you are a fellow attorney in need of an appellate attorney to refer a case to, we believe that our more than 20 years of experience can benefit your case.
