SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

Important details regarding appeals, post-conviction motions

If a person is convicted of a crime, regardless of the type, he or she needs to consider what will happen next. While not always the case, filing an appeal in an attempt to overturn a conviction is the next best step you can take.

It is always possible that the judge, prosecutor or even the defense attorney made a critical error during the trial. As a result, the person was convicted when he or she shouldn't have been.

It sounds easy enough to file an appeal with the hope of overturning a conviction, but nothing could be further from the truth. There is a lot that goes into this, including the ability to prove that some type of error was made, such as the ineffective assistance of counsel.

Since there are time limits in place regarding when you can file an appeal, it is important to do so as soon as possible. Waiting too long could eliminate your ability to do so, thus leaving you stuck with the original conviction and penalty.

Just because you are convicted of a crime does not mean it is going to stand up over time. However, if you want to file an appeal or post-conviction motion, you need to know what goes into the process.

If you are seeking more information on this subject matter, don't hesitate to review the many pages of our website touching on this. Soon enough, you will understand what you are doing and which steps to take next. To begin your search for information, visit our "New York Post-Conviction Motions Lawyers" webpage.
