Don’t Miss Your Opportunity to Appeal
You have the absolute right to demand a notice of appeal be filed by the lawyer who represented you at the sentencing. Even if the trial lawyer does not believe there are good issues to rise on appeal, he must still file your notice of appeal. In some circumstances, you may have waived your right to appeal but you may be able to argue on appeal that the waiver is not effective or does not apply to the issues you are raising on appeal. A notice of appeal must be filed within the time allowed by law. A skilled New York appellate law attorney at our firm can keep things moving and heighten your chances for a successful appeal.
