Don’t Give Up – We Can Help You Appeal
A judge or jury’s verdict does not necessarily mean the end of your case. You may have the opportunity to appeal your conviction – however, you will need the counsel of well-versed criminal appeal attorneys to help you.
You can turn to Hernandez & Associates, P.C. With decades of experience between them, our criminal law and immigration law attorneys have successfully appealed numerous verdicts in courts throughout Colorado.
What Is The Appeals Process Like In Colorado?
The appellate process can take months or even years, and it does not necessarily mean that you will get a new trial. These are the general steps:
- Your criminal defense lawyer files a Notice of Appeal with the Colorado District Court or the Court of Appeals.
- The court reviews the petition for an appeal and either grants or denies it.
- If you are appealing an unjustly harsh sentence, the judge may issue a new sentence.
Many appeals result from ineffective counsel the first time around. Your appeal will likely be your only chance to challenge the previous case results. That’s why it is crucial to have knowledgeable criminal law attorneys like ours who have a proven record of successful appeals representing you.
Is An Appeal Right For Me?
Not every case is meant for an appeal. Higher courts usually only grant appeals in which they determine that the previous trial involved a violation of your rights or a serious error in the legal process. Usually, the only appeals that make it to a higher court are those that involve severe felony offenses and that have a significant chance of a different verdict. When you speak with one of our attorneys, they will examine your case thoroughly and let you know whether you have a shot at an appeal.
