If you have been wrongly convicted, or if your loved one’s sentence is unfair, a criminal appeal gives your case a second chance at a favorable outcome. Choosing to appeal your case often allows a new lawyer and a new court the chance to make things right. When you appeal, choose The Blanch Law Firm. The firm focuses exclusively on criminal cases with a strong emphasis on criminal appeals in New York and in federal courts around the country.
After you have been convicted of a crime, or after you have been sentenced, you have the opportunity for a criminal appeal. If your conviction resulted from a trial, you have an absolute right to appeal. But, if you plead guilty, things can be more complicated; you must ask the court for permission to withdraw your plea.
You only have a limited time to appeal, so it is important to contact an experienced appellate attorney quickly. Contact The Blanch Law Firm by calling 888-984-5574 . Failing to act quickly could mean that you waive your right to appeal.
An appeal is not a retrial of a criminal case. It is an examination of the trial record to ensure that the proceedings were conducted in a fair manner. The judges on appeal are looking for errors which may have changed the verdict, and will disregard "harmless errors," which they believe did not have an effect.
Your appellate attorneys' job is to bring serious errors to the attention of the judges. To do this, they submit an in-depth convincing written brief that explains the errors. They then go to the court of appeals and argue your case before a panel of judges.
