Your Partner for Family Law Appeal Cases

Need Help With Your Appeals Case(s)? We’ve Got Your Back.

Taking on appeals cases can be challenging especially when you’ve got a busy schedule.

With Karp & Iancu as your appellate partner, we’ll leverage our experience to customize our approach by providing only the assistance you need to present the best case possible on appeal. Whether you want us to merely help you put your best foot forward by professionally ghostwriting and editing your briefs, or whether you want to bow-out of the process and have us take over the case on appeal, we are happy to provide several tiers of service options in order to allow you as much or as little control over your case as you desire.

We’ll Always Keep Your Client’s Best Interests at Heart

Depending on your workload needs, we offer three different appeals service:

Brief Writing & Editing
Among our appellate attorneys we have a former Editor-in-Chief of the Marquette Law Review, a long-time Editor of the Wisconsin Journal of Family Law, a prolific published legal authority, and an attorney who has authored seven full-length novels, one of which has been a Best Seller in multiple countries. Let us be your team of writers and editors while you remain the legal authority on your client’s appeal.

Your Responsibilities

  • Remain lead counsel
  • Sign all pleadings and appellate submissions
  • Present the case at oral argument

Karp & Iancu Responsibilities

  • Reduce your arguments to writing
  • Or alternatively, you can choose to write your own brief and have us act as your editing hand to ensure you present your client’s case in its best possible light.

Appellate Co-Counsel
If in addition to writing the briefs, you also want help developing your arguments on appeal, we are available to act as appellate co-counsel. Under this arrangement, here’s what the division of tasks looks like:

Your Responsibilities

  • Remain lead counsel
  • Sign all pleadings and appellate submissions
  • Present the case at oral argument

Karp & Iancu Responsibilities

  • Collaborate to identify and develop your best appellate arguments
  • Assist you with finding and analyzing the most relevant and persuasive legal research to support those arguments
  • Help to clearly and concisely present arguments in written briefs to the court

Lead Counsel
If you feel your time and talents are best-suited to trial work and you prefer not to undertake an appeal but strongly support your client’s position, you can refer the case to us to handle in full.

Your Responsibilities

  • Transition your client to a Karp & Iancu appellate attorney.

Karp & Iancu Responsibilities
