New York Appeals Attorney
Getting an Appeal After Judgment
When the verdict in a court case in which you were the defendant or in which you have been closely affected has been entirely wrong, you need the help of a skilled and experienced New York criminal defense attorney. Even if the outcome of the case had important elements which you feel are incorrect, you should get legal help to appeal to a higher court.
At the Law Offices of Brian D. Perskin, we care and are dedicated to obtaining the justice which you deserve. When a court case concludes, a sentence is handed out, often in combination with other penalties and court orders. If you or a loved one is intimately affected by a negative verdict, you can suffer a new wave of fear, confusion and dismay about your case or even the injustice that has been brought upon you. In this kind of circumstance, it may seem so final that there is nothing more you can do about it. One of the great things about our justice system, however, is that you may be able to appeal to a higher court. We can help you to under this legal avenue and how it may be opened on your behalf.
Appeals Lawyer in New York
In any circumstance where you feel an appeal is warranted, you often have the right to take the case to a superior court, an appellate court, or a supreme court, all of which means that such a court reviews the cases of lower courts. Depending on your unique case, we might be able appeal on the basis of such things as these:
- Contesting that there was incorrect procedure in how your case was administered. This is in the area of what is called "due process" and can include the belief that the court may have violated procedural rules.
- The fact finding of the lower court was flawed and those elements found as so called "fact" do not constitute reasonable evidence.
You want to have an attorney skilled and experienced in all levels of trials. We are proud to bring you over 15 years of such experience and will fight for your rights.
