The Appeals Process

 

New York City Criminal Attorneys Who Can Successfully Appeal Your Case

 
After a criminal case is completed, the defendant has the option to file what is called an appeal. An appeal is a legal process where a defendant accused of a crime can overturn a conviction. An appeal does not re-try the case from start to finish, but is instead it’s own case – against the trial. In order to file an appeal, there need to be evidence that supports a claim that the trial was unfair or unconstitutional. This can mean many different things. If the defendant’s constitutional rights were violated in any way, they may have the right to an appeal. If the defendant had ineffective counsel during their first trial, they may have the right to an appeal. If evidence was allowed in to the case, that should not have been allowed because it was obtained illegally or was unduly prejudicial, the defendant may have a right to an appeal. As you can see, it can be very complicated to determine whether or not your case has grounds for appeal in it. Only an experienced appeals attorney can help you determine whether you should proceed with filing an appeal.
 

Differences Between a Trial and an Appeal

 
In a trial, your attorney has to understand the elements of your crime and the rules of evidence for the jurisdiction. However, an appeal is a completely different type of case. There are multiple levels of appeals, and the way the trial is set up is entirely different. The appeal may be heard in front of only a judge, or a panel of judges. The appeal may be in the form of petitioning for certiorari from a high court and engaging in oral arguments. These cases are a completely separate area of law altogether from the basic criminal trial. Your attorney needs to know in-depth information about your grounds for appeal as well as be experienced in the appeals process itself.
 

Lengthy Appeals Process in Federal and New York Cases

 
Whether your appeal is within New York courts or the federal courts, it can be a long, drawn-out process. Sometimes a defendant has to engage in multiple appeals, or levels of appeals, before he or she is successful in overturning their conviction.

Testimonials

I know that what I did wasn't at all the right thing to do, and I will always feel bad about what I've done. I am so very sorry for the things I did in my past. Thanks to you I will have the ability to make things up to people in my future. Giving you positive feedback is the least that I could do for you, since you've pretty much saved my life. I wish I could be more specific or refer people to you, but the nature of my case prevents me from doing so. I will just say: Thank you very, very, very much. 100% -professionals. 100%-people.
