Despite the diligence and wisdom of our trial court judges, many cases that go to trial result in some basis for appeal. Our attorneys regularly assist clients with appeals, by initiating an appeal when required or by defending a positive trial outcome from an appeal by the opposing party.
Our appellate lawyers appear before state and federal appellate courts, including the United States Supreme Court, the Iowa Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeal for the Eighth Circuit, and other federal circuit courts.
In many instances, Hartung Schroeder is available for appeals even in cases where we did not represent the client at trial. However, the decision to retain counsel for an appeal must be made immediately upon receiving a ruling that requires appeal as the opportunity for appeal is quite short.
