Riverside Appellate Attorney

Understanding California Appeal Cases

When justice has not been served and an individual is wrongly convicted or when they did not receive a fair trial, they have the opportunity to file an appeal to seek to have the conviction overturned. The law allows for an appeal when there is cause to believe that there was any type of jury misconduct, illegal actions by a prosecution team, or other serious error or illegal act that could have affected the outcome for the individual on trial.

It is an opportunity under the law for a wrongly convicted individual to seek justice. All cases will have some error, but the question in an appeal will be whether those errors could have led to an unfair judgment. A Riverside appellate lawyer from the Law Offices of Grech & Packer provides the skilled address to all types of appeals, both at the state and federal level.

Do you need to appeal a verdict?

When an appeal is successful, there are a variety of possible outcomes. The case may go back to court for another trial; in other cases the conviction is fully overturned and the individual is free of the burden of the courts, or another trial. There are also cases in which the conviction included unfair punishment that went beyond what is allowed under law.

When an appeal is filed it may provide the opportunity to negotiate on behalf of the convicted individual. Each individual case has its own specific and unique evidence and circumstances and requires a professional to address the case with an insightful review of every aspect of the case to determine the best course of action.

It is vital that any appeal is immediately addressed; there is a short period of time in which to file before you will lose the opportunity to do so. Our legal team has extensive experience in filing criminal appeals and is often contacted by other firms to assist in drafting their motions and writs in appeals. You can take advantage of our experience and professionalism directly when you need to appeal a conviction.

Filing for an Expungement in California

A criminal conviction can negatively affect your ability to be accepted into a higher learning program or may disqualify you from certain jobs. If you have made a mistake in the past, you may think there is no way to erase it and move on. However, expungement is a tool that is available to some people. By taking advantage of this, you could get your criminal record cancelled. When you fill out job applications, you would be able to state that you do not have a criminal record. The employer will not be able to deny you a job or a promotion based on your past. However, there are some stipulations on an expungement. First, you would have had to served your probation and followed all the terms of your probation. However, even if there were some probation violations, you still may be able to qualify with the help of a skilled Riverside appeals attorney.
