Milton Appeals Information

Criminal Appeals

If you've been convicted of a crime you have a right to appeal your conviction in most cases. A Milton criminal appeals attorney may be able to get your conviction overturned if there is sufficient evidence to merit this outcome.

Criminal Appeals Lawyers

A criminal appeals lawyer will review your first court case to determine whether an event occurred that would make your conviction unjust. It's important to note, an appeal is not a new case. Rather, it is a review of the first case.

Criminal appeals attorneys generally look for procedural or legal mistakes that were made in the first case that resulted in your conviction. For example, your attorney may review jury instructions or how evidence was introduced. Mistakes during this period could render a jury verdict void.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone.
