Appealing a Criminal Conviction
If you believe a legal error made during your criminal trial had a significant, harmful effect on the outcome, you may appeal the decision. The error may have been committed by your attorney, the prosecution or the judge. Additionally, you may appeal a verdict if you believe the evidence did not support it.

Important Points About Criminal Appeals
Overturning a court decision requires an attorney with the skill and experience to do the work required for an appeal. An appellate lawyer must be a skilled researcher and writer. You also need a lawyer who is experienced in state and federal courts and is thoroughly familiar with appellate procedures and deadlines.
It is important to understand that appealing a criminal court decision is a challenging task. As the person making the appeal, the burden of proof lies with you and your attorney. To overturn a decision, you must have credible evidence to support your assertion that a legal error negatively affected the outcome of your case or that the evidence presented at your trial did not support the verdict.
