California Appellate Law

You Have the Right to Appeal

You may not have done well in your criminal trial and been convicted. It is important to know that you have the right to appeal. This is crucial to your future, as you are only too aware of the consequences of a criminal conviction. It is important to retain the services of an attorney who is skilled in making and winning criminal appeals. It takes a thorough understanding of California law and an ability to appeal to the reason of the judges to do what is right. For help, you are encouraged to contact an appellate attorney as soon as possible.

California Law Appeals Process

When you are convicted, it is important to make a timely appeal of the conviction to an appellate court. Your attorney writes a brief explaining why your original trial was not fair and sends a copy to the appellate court and to the prosecutor. Then your attorney appears at a hearing on the appeal and presents oral argument on why your conviction should be reversed. The appellate court judges may ask questions of your attorney and the prosecutor. Once the hearing is over, the appellate court judges will resolve among themselves whether to affirm the lower court decision or to reverse it and order a new trial.
