If your case is closed at the trial level, resulting in either a plea or a conviction at trial, you have the right to appeal. While I do not handle appellate or post-conviction work, you should know where to look to check on the status of your appeal.
Florida's court system has five District Courts of Appeal. Each District covers a certain region of Florida. For instance, Miami-Dade County is covered by the Third District Court of Appeal. Broward and Palm Beach are covered by the Fourth District Court of Appeal.
Each District Court of Appeal has a website that may provide online information regarding your appeal or the appeal of a loved one. The links are provided below.
