Criminal appeals are part of the representation in a criminal case but not many attorneys handle criminal appeals. Criminal appeals are different than criminal trials because instead of appearing in from a judge in the circuit or county level you are hearing before three judges at the district court level. In a cruelty all instead of arguing a case verbally you’re arguing your taste in a written brief. That means you must know how to write a brief and you need to know how to research material related to a criminal record.
I’ve been handling criminal appeals for many years and know how to write effective briefs to the district court of appeals, so I have the knowledge and experience to represent you in a criminal appeal following a criminal trial conviction.
In any criminal appeal, you have typically gone to trial or have done a motion to suppress and reserve that right to appeal two of the district court of appeal from the circuit court. So, what happens is the district court of appeal receives a trial transcript of what has happened before the circuit court. I will be reviewing that transcript. I will be researching your issues and filing your brief with the district court of appeal, that sits in Lakeland and Tampa, and has a three-judge panel to potentially overturn the lower court.
When grounds for an appeals hearing has been demonstrated, your legal counsel must still present your arguments to the appellate court in an effort to show that your ability to adequately defend your innocence was hindered and your conviction was a direct result of the issues argued in the appeals hearing.
To effectively represent a client in an appeals hearing, experience is the key. This experience is not only in how to analyze a criminal trial to find grounds for an appeal, but also how to properly present and argue any allowable aspect of your original trial in the appeals hearing.
