When a person is convicted of a crime after trial, the judge, the defense attorney or the prosecutor may have made critical errors during the trial that led to the conviction. In order to successfully appeal and overturn a conviction, a person must show that during trial there was some error of law such as the improper admission of evidence, the ineffective assistance of counsel, incorrect instructions to the jury or prosecutorial misconduct.
The appeals process differs dramatically from trial. Therefore, only an experienced attorney (skilled in appellate procedure and practiced in legal writing) can fully undertake these remedies effectively.

We are aggressive yet compassionate, and we built our practice on a commitment to personal service and professional excellence.
