Civil Appeals

In addition to representing individuals appealing their conviction or sentence in criminal cases, Nate Nieman also represents individuals who have received an adverse decision in a civil case and would like to appeal to a higher court. Mr. Nieman represents individuals on appeal in the following areas:

  • Family law and divorce appeals
  • Business or commercial law appeals
  • Insurance law
  • Immigrations appeals
  • Personal injury appeals
  • Civil rights appeals
  • Municipal law appeals

Appellate practice focuses more on expertise in the process, rather than the practice area, because so often success on appeal hinges on an attorney’s mastery of a complex web of statutes, rules, procedures, and concepts that often do not even exist in the trial court. Engaging an experienced appellate lawyer who is adept at the appeal process ensures that the appellant has the best chance of getting an adverse judgment reversed on appeal or protecting a judgment that that an appellee has obtained below.

Below is a list of recent cases in which Mr. Nieman was able to secure a victory for his client in the appellate court:

In re Jo.P., 2014 IL App (3d) 130941-U link (Successfully defended client’s petition for adoption on appeal)
People v. Ramos, 2016 IL App (3d) 160002-U link (Obtained reversal of client’s aggravated battery conviction)
In re L.M., 2017 IL App (3d) 170056-U link (Obtained reversal of order terminating client’s parental rights)
