Appealing Your Conviction
The court ruling made at the end of a trial does not have to be the final decision in your case. In fact, if a conviction was made, it should not be the conclusion of your time in court. Instead, you should take action to appeal the decision made in your case with the help of our firm. Doing so will allow you the chance to exonerate yourself of the charges that were made in your name and stand up for the future freedoms that you feel are rightly due to you; freedoms that would most definitely be compromised by the consequences of a guilty conviction made by a state or federal court system.
Appealing your case will not result in a re-trial. Rather, it will entail a re-examination of the trial in which the court ruling was made. The purpose of the appeals cases is to determine whether or not the proceedings were conducted in a fair and error-free manner. If it can be proven that any type of error - fundamental, harmful, reversible, or invited - was made during the trial of your case, then you stand a good chance of being able to plead guilty on a sentence of "time served," effectively dropping the consequences that were incurred in your original trial sentencing. These are important, potentially life-changing moves that could substantially change the course of your future. As such, they should not be handled without the guidance of a legal professional in the field of criminal defense.
