The Client’s Right to Appeal

A criminal defendant has the right to appeal a conviction and sentence. Meticulous preparation, a thorough review of the trial record, and painstaking legal research by an experienced appellate lawyer is essential to achieving the best outcome in an appeal.

State and Federal Appeals

Don’t Miss Your Opportunity to Appeal

An experienced state and federal appeals lawyer can advise you as to your chances for success in appellate court. You have the 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. 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.
