The Constitution of the United States guarantees every criminal defendant the right to a fair trial. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. The criminal appeals process gives you a chance to fix that.The appeals process allows you to have your case reviewed for errors by a higher court in an attempt to alter the original decision of the trial court.
The legal system is not perfect. It is run by imperfect people. These people sometimes get the law wrong. Sometimes the constitution is not followed. The appellate process is long, difficult, and complicated, and it is important to have an attorney on your side who you trust.
Our team of attorneys and researchers will comb through the transcripts and clerks record in your case to find errors.
You have a limited time to file your notice of appeal. In a state criminal case you have 30 days to file your notice of appeal. In a federal criminal case, a defendant’s notice of appeal must be filed in the district court within 14 days after the later of: (i) the entry of either the judgment or the order being appealed.
