Providing Legal Help When You Need It Most

Criminal appeals involve a lot of written documentation

Appealing a criminal conviction is something that many people convicted of crimes consider doing. For the men and women who feel this need, determining if their case meets the legal requirements for an appeal can be challenging. We are here to help you determine how you might proceed with your case.

One thing that you have to realize is that your appeal will have to be based on the prior criminal case. This means that the trial is going to be at the center of the appeal. Some defense attorneys work criminal trials with an appeal in mind; however, this isn't always the case.

There are many reasons why you might appeal a criminal conviction. For example, there might be new evidence that would show that you didn't do it. This would be the case if a rape kit for your case was found and the kit showed that your DNA wasn't found in the rape kit.

Other reasons might exist for a criminal appeal. We can review your case to determine what options you have. Once you know what you might be able to do, you can either proceed with an appeal. In this case, we could start working on building the appeal.

Criminal appeals are very different from the initial trial. Oftentimes, everything that is done is done only on paper. We might have a short time to present a verbal argument, but the vast majority of these cases is done via written word and review of prior proceedings. We can explain how this might impact your criminal appeal.
