About Our Firm

Our law office understands that when people hire an attorney, they are often experiencing very stressful situations.

The Appel Firm makes sure our clients not only receive high-quality legal services, but also the personalized attention they deserve.

Since 2003, The Appel Firm has been providing personalized legal assistance in the Chicagoland area.

Mr. Appel has also devoted significant time to several Pro Bono litigation and counseling matters. In particular, he has assisted clients of the Center for Disability and Elder Law, where Mr. Appel served as a Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI) fellow.

Mr. Appel is admitted to practice in Illinois, as well as the United States District Courts for the Northern and Central Districts of Illinois and the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

Our firm has extensive experience in all types of civil litigation matters, ranging from breach of contract, fraud, condominium law and statutory violations to defamation, personal injury and legal malpractice, but we don’t just offer help after a problem arises.

We also advise clients in starting a business, running a condominium board, hiring and terminating employees, using contracts in their own businesses and liability reduction reviews to help keep clients from ever needing to go to court in the first place.

Our firm believes an ounce of legal prevention is worth far more than a pound of legal relief.
