Your Future Is On the Line Let Our Firm Help With Your Criminal Appeal

Appeals Lawyer in Clearwater

Do you need assistance with a criminal appeal?

There is no doubt that going through the process of a criminal investigation and trial can take a lot out of you, physically and emotionally. When a verdict is handed down and you have been unfairly convicted, it is a terrible and frightening situation. A Clearwater criminal defense attorney is prepared to offer effective post-trial help and an immediate start to the appeals process. There is a short window of opportunity in which to file an appeal, and taking immediate action is critical.

What exactly is an appeal? It is, in essence, the highly-detailed process of reviewing your trial and preparing a legal document that sets forth each error that was made in the trial court. This legal document known as an appeal is usually filed for a court to review. Your attorney can look for any procedural or legal errors that may have prevented you from receiving a fair trial. He can work towards convincing the court that a serious error occurred in the trial court that prevented you from receiving a fair trial.

If the evidence used to convict you was tainted or mishandled this must be addressed. Unfair sentencing, a conviction of an innocent individual, jury misconduct and other matters must be challenged by a professional and experienced appeals lawyer from our firm. Your judge was also bound by very strict guidelines when he or she instructed the jury on the law applicable to your case, and if any errors were made in the instructions given to the jury, it can lead to strong grounds for an appeal.
