Do You Have Grounds To Appeal A Criminal Conviction Or Sentence?
In every criminal trial, the judge must make a number of decisions about the law and the evidence, and whether to admit certain evidence into the trial. While every judge strives to make decisions supported by the relevant statutory and case law, judges do make mistakes. These mistakes can have serious consequences for a defendant. Every defendant who has been found guilty at trial has the right to bring an appeal. When considering an appellate lawyer, it is of utmost importance to work with someone who has the skill and knowledge necessary to present the strongest possible appeal.

Providing Clear Analysis And Strong Advocacy
Trial judges can make errors in admitting evidence that was acquired through unconstitutional means. These unconstitutional acts can include:
- Stopping a vehicle without a reasonable suspicion
- Illegally searching one’s person, home or vehicle
- Illegal seizures of property
- Illegal wiretapping
The presence of any of these or other factors can compel an appellate court to give the defendant a new trial or another relief.
While some appeals and post-conviction motions may involve oral arguments before a judge or panel of judges, in most cases, the appeal will be made in written form.
