WHY HIRE OUR FIRM FOR YOUR CRIMINAL APPEAL?

Since 1989, I have taken an personal interest and have worked ferociously to investigate and argue the points of each appeal for my clients. There are a number of trial errors that are not uncommon and may render your criminal case appropriate for appeal. In the American legal system, a person is considered innocent, until the prosecution proves the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt on all elements of the crime. If the finding of guilt was not supported by this legal standard, then the decision is wrong and may be appealed based upon insufficiency of evidence. It is important to weigh the evidence used in the original case to determine if the evidence is believable and whether the testifying witnesses tell the truth. We refer to this as the manifest weight of the evidence.
A good appeals lawyer will also determine if the original criminal law trial sentenced the defendant to more counts than the law allows. This is referred to as a double jeopardy violation. In my experience with criminal law and criminal law appeals, I have reduced prison time for my clients on this double jeopardy issue, which is called allied offenses of similar import and merger, where multiple sentences must become one sentence. Sometimes, the original trial attorney was not effective. The right to due process of law is protected by the Sixth Amendment of the United States, and every person has a right to to a lawyer to ensure fairness in a trial or any proceeding. If a lawyer does not keep a sharp eye on everything that goes on in trial, and misses something that prejudices the client, an excellent criminal law appeals lawyer can retry the case.
