Criminal matters sometimes result in convictions that should never have happened. There are some instances in which the person who was wrongfully convicted might need to use the legal system to try to rectify the matter. This can often feel like an uphill battle without hope. We are here to help you pursue appeal options that are appropriate for your circumstances.
One thing that many people don’t realize is that you can’t file an appeal for any random reason. Instead, there are only specific reasons why you might be able to appeal a criminal conviction. Determining if your case meets these qualifications can strengthen your appeal strategy.
When you appeal a conviction, you have a very limited list of options to try. We must submit a brief that outlines the issue leading to the appeal. The court then reviews this brief along with the initial court records to determine if the appeal is valid.
We know that you might have a lot of questions about the appeals process and the possibilities available to you. We can work with you to ensure that you understand what’s going on. Making sure that you know what your options are is imperative in these cases since you are the one who needs to make the decisions about the direction of the appeal.
Filing an appeal isn’t a quick event. Instead, you should be prepared for the lengthy, complex process to wend its way through the legal system. We will be here to help you and work on your behalf each step of the way.
