What Is Involved in the Criminal Appeals Process?

As an appeals attorney, our role in the criminal appeals process is multifaceted and complex. We begin by meticulously reviewing the trial record for potential legal errors, which could include issues like improperly admitted evidence or flawed jury instructions. We then draft a detailed appellate brief, arguing the merits of the appeal to the appellate court.

This involves in-depth legal research and strategic argumentation aimed at persuading the court to overturn the original decision. During the oral argument phase, we present our case to a panel of judges, answering their questions and countering the arguments of the opposing counsel. Overall, our objective is to fight for our clients' rights and seek justice on their behalf at every stage of the appeals process.

Our criminal appeal lawyers have a deep understanding of the legal system and are well-versed in the appeals process. We have successfully handled appeals for a wide range of criminal cases and are committed to using their extensive knowledge and experience to fight for your rights and defend your freedom.

Whether you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or a serious felony, our criminal appeal lawyers are here to help. We will work tirelessly to review your case, identify any errors or legal issues, and file a strong appeal on your behalf. Our goal is to help you obtain a fair trial and the best possible outcome.
