Presentation in Criminal Appeals
Retain a Skilled Miami Criminal Defense Attorney
Miami criminal defense lawyers at Rothman & Associates, P.A. have a proven track record of providing
clients with successful appellate representation in state and federal
criminal appeals. Contact our firm if you would like to discuss a possible
appeal with a lawyer from our appellate practice.
Every person convicted of a crime, in general, is entitled to one appeal
of his or her conviction (first appeal as of right). If there was an error
in the way the court handled your case, and the outcome would have been
different if the error was corrected, experienced criminal appellate counsel
may be able to have your conviction reversed (overturned). Early consultation
with appellate counsel is essential.
Miami Court Appeals Attorneys
Guidelines for state and federal appeals:
- The notice of appeal must be filed within a short period of time following
sentencing and the filing of the court's final judgment (only 10 days
for federal appeals and 30 days for Florida state appeals) in order for
the appellate court to consider your appeal.
- Before you are sentenced by the court, and even prior to receiving a verdict,
if you feel there has been an error in the way the court has handled your
case, it may help to consult with experienced criminal appellate counsel.
If you do not object to the error and give the trial court the opportunity
to correct it prior to entry of the final judgment, the appellate court
may not consider your appeal. Experienced criminal appellate counsel can
assist your trial counsel in ensuring that the error will be available
for consideration on appeal.
- Due to the required time constraints and complicated procedural rules for
initiating, presenting, and arguing your appeal, it is important to have
an attorney with the right experience to handle your criminal appeal.
- In certain situations, subsequent to the first appeal, there may be other
means to appeal a conviction or sentence. However, there are time constraints
and other limitations that are imposed on such subsequent appeals. Experienced
criminal appellate counsel can help in pursuing all avenues for appeal.
