Appealing A Criminal Conviction Or Sentence
Have you already been convicted or sentenced to a term of prison, probation or other punitive outcomes at the trial level? These consequences could have a lasting impact on your freedom, your finances or your family. That doesn’t mean your case is complete. You may still have grounds for an appeal.
Appeals are much different from trials. For that reason, it’s important to find a lawyer who knows how to handle criminal appeals in Ohio.
Why Work With Us
At Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, in Cleveland, we can assess your options for pursuing an appeal to overturn a conviction or challenge a sentence. If you have strong grounds for appeal, we will identify those and fight for your rights at every stage of the appellate process.
Our attorneys have argued hundreds of cases at the appellate level. What’s more, our legal team includes a former prosecutor who understands the nuances of criminal cases from both sides. We will use that skill and experience to fight for you.
What To Expect With An Appeal
Our team of skilled trial lawyers knows how to analyze appellate cases after the initial stages of the trial level are complete. We will review the facts of your case and, if warranted, file an appellate motion on your behalf to fight the outcome of your case. We will then engage in written and oral arguments on your behalf at the appropriate appellate court to fight for you.
Of course, no outcome is guaranteed. But it’s possible that a prison sentence, conviction or other punitive outcomes could be reversed in your favor.
