The Appeals Process

A criminal trial can be grossly unfair with illegal evidence prejudicing the jury against the defendant. A defendant can have an attorney who fails to defend his rights. This deprives the defendant of his right to a fair trial. Fortunately the defendant can appeal with the help of a knowledgeable lawyer.

An appeals lawyer interviews the client as to what went on the trial court, documents irregularities, and reviews a transcript of the trial looking for reversible error in the proceedings. He writes a brief to show to the appeals court how the defendant's rights were violated. He then appears before the appellate court along with the government attorney and argues that justice be done. If persuaded, the appeals court reverses the conviction and sends the matter back to the trial court to dismiss the case or have a new trial.
