ABOUT US

AppealCleveland.com is the outgrowth of a Cleveland, Ohio based law practice that focuses its energy on winning appeals to trial court judgments.  With each attorney added to AppealCleveland.com, the network grows stronger.  The attorneys here provide attention to details that were overlooked in either a trial or hearing, and understanding the case in a way that the trial attorney, judge, or jury did not properly examine.  

We work with others whenever possible, pooling our strengths to better serve clients and families we work with. You'll never have to worry about not getting an answer to a question or not being informed about your status - we believe in communication as a part of our commitment to serving the needs of our clients throughout the length of any case.
