Did Errors Occur in Your Case?
Errors are common during trials. However, not all errors will result in
a new trial or an outright reversal. The likelihood of winning an appeal
depends on many factors, including whether the error was brought to the
judge's attention and whether the error involves a constitutional
right. Notably, even if the error was significant, you may be barred from
challenging the conviction or the sentence if you wait too long to appeal.
If you need assistance for an appeal, call my firm. I will thoroughly examine
your situation, determining if errors are present and guide you through
the process so you can understand what to expect.
