Florida Attorney experienced in Appeals
Criminal clients are entitled to a direct appeal of a conviction and sentence, which begins by the filing of a notice of appeal within 30 days of the sentence. The appellate process allows a higher court to review all legal errors that may have occurred during a trial that could have deprived a client of their constitutional right to a fair trial.
This process involves many steps. First, there is a careful examination of the transcripts of pre-trial proceedings and trial to discover potential issues. Second, extensive legal research is conducted to properly formulate arguments to present to the Court of Appeal. Third, the arguments are carefully drafted in a legal brief and, in most cases, presented to the Court through oral argument before a panel of three judges. A client’s best opportunity at a successful appeal requires an attorney experienced in appellate practice. Contact Law Offices of Kawass, P.A. today.
