Appeals Attorney in Miami-Dade County
Dedicated Criminal Defense for Post-Conviction Matters
If you or a loved one has been convicted of a serious crime, you have potentially felt a number of life changing consequences. You may feel as if there is no hope, and that there is no opportunity for another hearing. Thankfully, a conviction is never the last word. There is always the possibility of filing appeals, against the conviction or sentence, and of pursuing a different course of action.
When filing an appeal, you need a Miami-Dade County appeals lawyer on your side. Our firm's trusted and proven track record speaks for itself.
The Appeals Process Explained
The process of appeals begins by contacting an appeals lawyer in Miami-Dade County immediately following a conviction. This lawyer can review your case and determine what is the best course of action for filing an appeal. Once this has been determined, the conviction or sentence may be contested, and a new trial can begin.
Appeals can be filed for a number of convictions, including, but not limited to:
- Assault and battery cases
- Domestic violence
- Drug crimes
- Juvenile crimes
- Murder and manslaughter
- Sex crimes
- Theft crimes
- Identity theft
- Violent crimes or firearm crimes
- White collar crimes
A skilled appeals lawyer will look for mistakes in the previous case and uses these as leverage in an appeal case. The appellate system allows for individuals to have a second chance, and with the right legal help, a person can have their past convictions altered.
