Types of Appeals We Defend

No matter how serious the charges against you may have been, you are entitled to appeal the verdict. The type of appeal will depend on the convicting court, the offense, and when your case took place.

In order to appeal the court decision, you will need to:

  • Determine if the court accurately and impartially interpreted the law
  • Show how the judge made a mistake in law that resulted in a wrongful outcome
  • Have lost the trial—an appeal cannot be filed for an outcome that was simply less than ideal
  • Wait until your judgment is officially entered
  • Submit your appeal in a timely manner

Depending on the facts of the underlying case, you could be entitled to relief on an appeal. Having strong legal defense on your side to investigate and perfect that appeal is essential.
