What Should You Know About Appeals?

Time matters. You only have a small window of time to file a Notice of Appeal with the proper court after your final trial court decision has been filed. Once that deadline has expired, it is very difficult to have your appeal accepted by the court.

A conviction is not necessarily the last step for you. In some cases, it is appropriate to appeal the outcome of the case, ultimately overturning the conviction or securing a new sentence. You may have grounds to appeal your criminal case if there is evidence that mistakes in the criminal justice process affected the judge’s or jury’s decision.

In civil cases, it may be appropriate for one party to appeal the outcome of the case. If there were mistakes in the process, if the other party lied about key information or if other missteps affected the outcome to your detriment, an appeal may be necessary. We can help you take the appropriate steps to request that an appellate court review your case.
