Does Your Case Need to Be Reviewed?

A criminal conviction of any kind will likely affect you for years to come, if not for the rest of your life. No matter what you’ve been charged with, it’s important to make sure that your case was handled fairly and that you received a fair, justified decision. If you suspect that the decision in your case was made unfairly or by mistake, an appellate attorney can provide you with representation as they argue on your behalf and seek to have the decision overturned. Learn more about how an appellate attorney could help you below, and contact The Law Office of Lisa Pelosi if you would like to schedule a free consultation to have your case reviewed.

When to Hire an Appellate Attorney

It’s understandable to feel overwhelmed after losing in court, especially if you’ve already hired a criminal defense attorney to represent you. Both your conviction and the sentencing can be appealed if you believe that either, or both, resulted from an error in the process. It’s important to keep in mind that appealing the court’s de cision is not a retrial; rather, it’s a careful examination of the facts of your case and the process that led to the conviction. Appealing a judgment is a different process than going to trial, and this is why it can be beneficial to hire an attorney who’s experienced as a criminal defense attorney and as an appellate attorney.

What to Look for in an Appellate Attorney

While it may be tempting to file an appeal through the criminal defense attorney who represented you in your case, hiring a different attorney for the appeals process is beneficial for several reasons. First and foremost, you’ll benefit from a new perspective on your case. If your attorney missed something important during the trial process, it’s unlikely that an appellate attorney will miss it as well. They will also be able to provide you with information about cases like yours and the outcomes they’ve achieved, which may not be possible if you are working with a criminal defense attorney who does not regularly file appeals.
