Criminal Appeals

If you feel that you were wrongly convicted of a crime, you may have an opportunity to appeal the conviction, but you should act fast.  In most cases, if you wish to appeal the conviction, you must file a Notice of Appeal within 30 days of the final judgment against you.  Failure to file the Notice in time could mean that you lose your ability to appeal.

A proper analysis of whether you should appeal a conviction involves multiple factors, including the facts and evidence that the prosecution had against you and whether any evidence was not suppressed that could have been, whether your attorney at trial effectively represented your interests, whether the jury was properly instructed, or an attorney’s or judge’s conflict of interest.  Often a determination can only be made after reviewing the extensive file and trial transcript.  Therefore, it is critical that you contact an experienced appeals attorney as soon as possible to allow time to properly evaluate your case and advise you regarding the possibility of prevailing on an appeal.
