Do I Have Grounds to File an Appeal?


The legal counsel you choose to represent you during your appeals proceedings will have a significant impact on your ability to exercise your rights, have a convincing argument made on your behalf, and ultimately get the court’s decision reserved.

Grounds to file an appeal include:

  • Unjustly convicted of a crime
  • Legal errors, misconduct on the part of the attorney representing
  • Legal errors, misconduct on the part of the prosecution
  • A lack of sufficient evidence
  • Jury tampering
  • Any other action that may have led to the unfavorable outcome of your case

You must act quickly if you wish to file an appeal as there are very exact timeframes and legal restrictions that will be rigidly enforced by the courts.
