Do you need an appellate attorney for your criminal trial?

Imagine you lost your drug crimes trial and now you're awaiting sentencing. That's bad enough, but to make matters worse, you're innocent. You know that you didn't do the crime they've convicted you of, and you know that your criminal proceedings were completely unfair. What are your options?

You may want to look into the possibility of filing an appeal. For this, you'll need an appellate attorney. Your current defense attorney might already have the requisite skills required to pursue an appeal in your case, or you might need to call in an attorney with more experience. In many cases, your current defense attorney will work in conjunction an appellate attorney to seek the best possible result in your appeal.

The appellate lawyer will look through the records that apply to the previous criminal case, searching for procedural errors and legal problems. The appellate attorney will then carry out detailed research to construct complex legal arguments regarding how certain details have been interpreted. This is a highly strategic process because the appellate attorney needs to successfully challenge the lower court judge's determination.

Ultimately, a criminal trial lawyer paired with a skilled appellate attorney can make for an incredible combination when it comes to the pursuit of a criminal appeal. That said, defendants who lose their drug crimes cases should not jump the gun on immediately seeking an appeal. Careful consideration and analysis need to be made before filing this kind of legal action. At our law office, we can review your criminal court documents to determine if a criminal appeal is a wise choice in your particular case.
