The court system is not perfect by any means. No institution that is made by men is absolutely perfect. However, the men who established that system were wise enough to know that it was not perfect and devised a way in which to catch people who fall through the cracks. This is known as the appeals process.

Judges are human beings and can make bad decisions. Whatever the cause, a court may have settled on a final verdict that was flawed and needs “a second opinion.” This is the reason for the existence of the criminal appeals process, through which you can ask a higher court to review the initial decision made in your case. In some cases it can be taken all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. We are prepared to help you at any level of the criminal appeals process.

However, you must act quickly. In the state courts, you have up to 42 days to file a notice of appeal from the day of sentencing, and in the federal courts, you have only 10 days. Contact mus to find out what to do next with your criminal appeal. As a criminal defense lawyer who fights for the rights of people from all walks of life in both state and federal appeals, we understand your situation and can help.
