Appellate

Moore Strickland is a full service firm, handling cases through the litigation and appellate stages. We have had extraordinary success in handling appeals, both for cases we've tried and for cases transferred from other attorneys, winning 22 out of 23 appellate actions in the Illinois Appellate and Illinois Supreme Courts.

Our appellate victories have not only benefitted the particular defendants involved, they have also set favorable precedents, changing the landscape of that area of law in favor of our clients' industries. Our firm has prevailed in appeals setting favorable Illinois precedents for business and premises owners defending against tort claims. These precedents help to limit when defendants can be found liable under theories commonly relied on by plaintiffs, such, as voluntary undertaking, special relationships, retained control and dangerous conditions on the land. These decisions have included:

  • —A line of Illinois Appellate Court decisions and an Illinois Supreme Court decision protecting municipal and private premises owners from liability for heating pipe burn injuries.
  •  
  • —A recent landmark Appellate Court decision affirming dismissals of three sexual abuse claims against a well-known national youth services organization.

If you have a favorable decision threatened by appellate action, contact Moore Strickland to protect and secure your victory. Our partners would be happy to address any appellate concerns you may have:
