Glendale Post-Conviction Procedures
Skilled Attorneys Helping You Keep Fighting in Appellate Court
After enduring the stress and anxiety that accompanies any criminal court proceedings, the thought of pursuing an appeal after a conviction can be daunting. However, it is your right to seek an appeal, and our highly skilled Glendale criminal defense lawyers can help to guide you through the process.
How Does an Appeal Work?
When someone has been convicted of a crime, a successful appeal allows them to reverse the conviction and try the case again. All appeals must be based around evidence already on record from the original trial, and may not include new evidence which had not been submitted at that time.
Appeals are most commonly based on the mishandling of some aspect of the trial, such as:
- Judicial bias.
- Jury instruction or juror conduct.
- Prosecutor conduct.
- Admission of evidence.
- Rulings on trial motions.
One thing to bear in mind is that filing for appeals have hard-and-fast deadlines; you have 60 days from the date of sentencing to file a Notice of Appeal for felonies and 30 days for misdemeanors. Regardless of whether we were the trial lawyers for your original case, our team can help to steer you through the Court of Appeals with efficiency and skill.
