Daytona Beach Appeal Lawyer
Are You Seeking to Appeal a Criminal Conviction in FL?
If you have been unfairly convicted of a crime, you have the right to appeal your guilty verdict. This includes appeals regarding jail terms as well as court-ordered restitution. Appeals are typically made when there have been court errors in a case, or the law wasn't followed. In these situations, a higher court will agree to review the decision of the lower court where the conviction occurred.
There is no new evidence introduced during an appeal. The purpose of an appeal is to evaluate whether or not any errors were made during the earlier trial that resulted in the guilty verdict. If, after careful examination, the appellate court agrees that mistakes were made, the court can reverse, overturn, modify or send the case back to the trial court for further action.
An appeals case requires a highly competent attorney that has both knowledge and experience in the appeals process. If you are seeking an appeal, contact a Daytona Beach criminal defense lawyer to have your case reviewed. The capable attorneys at Buckmaster & Ellzey can discuss the merits of your appeal and explain the appeal process.
