Appeals and Litigation

When You're Not Satisfied With the Decision of the Trial Court

State and Federal Litigation and Appeals Throughout Illinois

Litigation encompasses any case that could potentially go to trial, regardless of the size or value of the case. Of course, everyone prefers to prevail at trial, but for whatever reason, sometimes that doesn't happen. The case does not have to stop there; at Harlovic and Perko, we represent clients who want to appeal a ruling of the trial court that may not have been favorable to them or defend those who did receive a favorable ruling but the opposing party is unhappy.

From our office in Dundee, Illinois, Attorney Phyllis Perko provides appellate representation to clients throughout the state. For more information on representation for litigation or appeal, contact Harlovic and Perko to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your case.

Civil and Criminal Appeals Throughout Illinois

We handle both civil and criminal appeals in the Illinois state court systems. Appeals are handled by Attorney Phyllis J. Perko; she has extensive appellate experience and has written appellate briefs in most areas of Illinois state law. The majority of our appellate work is in family and business law, but we welcome clients appealing other matters, including state and federal criminal appeals. She "wrote the book" on 'Illinois Criminal Procedure' and 'Appeals and Collateral Remedies.'

If you're unhappy with your results at trial, we can work with you on an appeal. Attorney Perko has been involved in appellate work since graduating law school, first as an appellate clerk and then writing appeals for the government. We often receive referrals from other lawyers in the surrounding area who may prefer to engage our services for trial or appellate work and we are ready to work with you.

Our Litigation and Trial Practice

Our litigation practice is primarily focused on clients in Kane County and McHenry County. We handle everything that could potentially go to trial from small cases to large legal disputes. We routinely work on issues involving family law, criminal law, real estate, contract disputes, probate, and business litigation. Attorney Phyllis Perko is a qualified family law mediator with an extensive experience with representing clients in family law disputes. She is often called in by other lawyers to assist with trial work and to help preserve issues for appeal.
