Handling Appeals In State And Federal Courts

The most common regret of our appeals clients is not hiring a better-qualified criminal defense lawyer for their original case — because mistakes by defense counsel are the most common basis for a valid criminal appeal. Many have received misguided counsel or had their lawyers miss deadlines they never told the client about, or experienced a host of other problems. At Goldberg & Allen, LLP, we are dedicated to correcting these mistakes.

Analyzing Your Case And Offering Sound Legal Guidance

One of the first questions to address is whether you may have waived your right to appeal, as is the case with most guilty pleas leading to conviction in state courts. We can readily answer this and discuss what happened in order to offer you informed guidance. Our attorneys will not offer false hope — but if you have cause for an appeal, we will be intent on proving your case.

What Is Post-Conviction Relief?

Even after you have exhausted the appeals process, it does not mean that all hope is lost. You can still file for post-conviction relief. For example, we may be able to show that there is new evidence in your case or that your original attorney did not provide effective assistance. In these circumstances, you could be eligible for a new trial.

Whether you are filing for an appeal or for post-conviction relief, there are strict time limits — and that is why it is critical to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
