Are You Interested In Making An Appeal?

Last updated on May 19, 2021

If your case did not result in the verdict you hoped for, it is possible to file an appeal. Having an attorney who understands the law is imperative. Sapone & Petrillo, LLP, has represented clients throughout New York. We understand what is on the line and will do everything we can to fight on your behalf. Our attorneys can answer your questions and discuss how this process will work.

How The Right Lawyer Can Help

Understandably, many people are overwhelmed by the thought of taking on the legal system. We are here to do that for you. The criminal appeals process can be quite complex. First, we must file a notice of appeal. We put in an appellate brief in order to help convince a judge that errors were made. We also must have an oral argument where we present our case. This is extremely important and gives us the chance to speak freely on your behalf.

During the oral argument, we must show how there was prosecutorial misconduct, mistakes by a judge or insufficient evidence. Appeals cases are not always cut and dried, and they are very difficult to argue. They require the skills of a tenacious, skilled attorney. We do what it takes because we realize the consequences of being convicted can be severe. From steep fines to years behind bars, our clients and their freedom are at risk. Put your trust in a firm that does what it takes to clearly express your case and get the best possible result.

Committed To Resolving Complex Claims

The best way to protect yourself is to discuss your options with an attorney sooner rather than later. The legal system moves quickly, and it’s easy to miss critical moments in a case. Our team will work with you from beginning to end and will always keep you up to date on any changes. Communication and professionalism are crucial and something we pride ourselves on.
