When You Can File for an Appeal

An appeal, by definition, is a process wherein a higher court reviews the decision of a lower court for legal errors that may have resulted in an injury or incorrect outcome. Anyone convicted by a judge or jury at trial has the right to request an appeal, and an appellate court may grant you a reduced sentence or new trial based on:

  • Improperly admitted evidence
  • Incorrect jury instructions
  • Lack of evidence to support a verdict of “guilty beyond a reasonable doubt”
  • Jury misconduct
  • Inadequate legal representation

It’s important to understand that an appellate court will only consider these factors if it can be shown that the legal errors involved affected the outcome of your case. Minor errors are not considered.

How We Can Help

If you feel you may have grounds for an appeal after a guilty verdict in court, Attorney Aaron Holt can review the facts of your case, the trial proceedings, and evidence of wrongdoing or errors by the prosecutor, jury, or judge. If you have valid grounds for an appeal, we can take legal action and fight for you and your future.

The appeals process is very challenging, and your chances for a favorable outcome are greatly increased with the right attorney by your side. Appellate law is far more complex, and at Holt Law, you will be represented by a true legal professional.
