Hearing the final verdict given by the judge in a trial can make for a anxiety-provoking experience. However, many criminal defendants do not know that the sentence called out in a trial is not final. Every criminal defendant has the right to appeal against the conviction or ask for a review of the trial proceedings. This right has been given to criminal defendants by law.
It is significant to have a skilled lawyer defending you if you want a fruitful result out of the appeal. Appeals are complicated procedures that require meeting court deadlines, rules and regulations, and a solid representation of the facts and references. There are cases where appeals can end up having no positive outcome – such as no sentence reversal or retrial.
However, we at Tibbitt Law will do our absolute best to defend you dedicatedly in the appellate court.
