Appealing A Conviction
Being handed a guilty verdict does not have to be the end of your case. You have the right to appeal the decision if you believe it was based on a legal mistake made in court. When a wrongful conviction or sentence occurs, the path to justice is an appeal. At The Garber Law Firm, P.C., our attorneys have decades of experience and will fight tirelessly for our clients. Based in Marietta, we assist clients throughout the United States.
What Is An Appeal?
A common misconception is that with an appeal comes a new trial. However, it is more accurate to say an appeal is a review of your original trial. The purpose is to discover whether any procedural mistakes were made that compromised the integrity of the court’s decision in your fraud or felony case.
Do You Have Grounds For An Appeal?
Our attorneys are adept at discovering and presenting evidence that shows how a mistake led to one’s conviction and/or erroneous sentence. Errors that serve as grounds for an appeal include:
- The judge wrongfully denied a motion to suppress evidence
- The attorney who represented you made a critical mistake
- The judge did not allow your attorney to present certain evidence in your favor
- Other procedural errors
