Criminal Appeals

If you’ve been convicted of a crime you have a right to appeal your conviction in most cases. A Florissant criminal appeals attorney may be able to get your conviction overturned if there is sufficient evidence to merit this outcome.

Criminal Appeals Lawyers

A criminal appeals lawyer will review your first court case to determine whether an event occurred that would make your conviction unjust. It’s important to note, an appeal is not a new case. Rather, it is a review of the first case.

Criminal appeals attorneys generally look for procedural or legal mistakes that were made in the first case that resulted in your conviction. For example, your attorney may review jury instructions or how evidence was introduced. Mistakes during this period could render a jury verdict void.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney’s experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it’s possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
