California Criminal Appeal Lawyer

Have you been convicted of a crime under false pretense or error? It is no secret that trial mistakes can be made and can have serious consequences. A criminal appeal can give you a second chance at justice. Your conviction could be overturned to reverse the court's decision. Your sentence also could be dropped or reduced by filing an appeal with the assistance of a lawyer from Rodriguez Lewis & Kahn.

California Appeal Laws

If you wish to have your case reviewed for an appeal, there are stipulations that must be followed. Appeals are typically limited to situations in which the higher court reviews the actions executed by the lower court. It is important to note that no new evidence can be introduced and only what was said in the previous trial can be reviewed. The decision will not be overturned if the higher court has assessed that the trial judge properly applied laws and the decision was made based on factual evidence. The appellate court can determine if serious mistakes were made that prevented a party from obtaining a fair trial. A criminal appeal can be filed within 60 days of the original conviction by the individual or a lawyer.

The appeal process is complex and demands experienced knowledge to handle. The California Courts of Appeal, which can review your case from the trial court, is divided into six districts throughout California. If you have been convicted of a drug crime or sex crime, you are probably facing severe consequences. If a mistake has been made, it can be profitable to have your case settlement reviewed by a higher court.
