We work with clients from the beginning of a matter to completion. Collins Bargione & Vuckovich is committed to providing the highest level of representation in all phases of litigation, including, when necessary, the appellate process. An appeal can be a critical time when a win must be defended, or it can be the necessary opportunity to correct the outcome of the lower court’s adverse ruling. Through our appellate practice, we provide complete representation for our existing clients. We also accept new appellate matters for clients seeking appellate representation. We also co-counsel with other lawyers who are seeking the addition of appellate counsel. CBV lawyers are highly experienced appellate advocates and have argued before the appellate courts of Illinois. 

We have extensive experience in a wide variety of appellate matters.
