Schiller DuCanto & Fleck is pleased to announce that partner Michele M. Jochner recently presented on “Considerations for Taking a Family Law Appeal” as part of the CLE (Continuing Legal Education) Annual Appellate Law Seminar hosted by the Kane County Bar Association. The virtual program offers 3 hours of general CLE credit and 1 hour for ethics.
As part of the virtual seminar, Michele collaborated with judges and other legal professionals to discuss best practices, trends, and developments in Illinois appellate practice related to ethics, appealing allocation of parenting time, factors to consider when deciding whether to appeal a family law case, and general feedback from Justices of the Illinois Appellate Court.
Highly regarded as a thought leader, published author, mentor and educator within the legal field, Michele regularly writes for The Best Lawyers in America. In her recent article, “Clients With Appeal,” she shares a checklist of the pros and cons to consider when determining whether an appeal is worthwhile, and the consequences that may follow as a result of each decision.
