Are you a disgruntled convict who feels like your trial was unfair or the court made legal mistakes or abuses of discretion? Well, you are in the right place because we are here to help you in the appeal process. Each year, our Jacksonville appeal lawyers handle many civil and criminal appeal cases at the federal, state and supreme courts. At Brownstone, we appreciate that filing an appeal is very different from the trial court process due to the complicated rules and tight deadlines to be adhered to. This is why we are the only appellate law firm that focuses on appeal cases only. All we do is conduct painstaking research to ensure that we are up to date on new legislation and can therefore present strong arguments at the appellate courts.

A criminal appeal is brought to review a matter arising from a criminal case. If you have been convicted of a crime in circuit court, you can file a direct appeal of the conviction and sentence to the District Court of Appeal. The district court also has the jurisdiction to hear the writs of habeas corpus, certiorari, prohibition or mandamus in certain exceptional circumstances prior to trial and after judgment.

In matters of criminal appeal, time is of the essence. You have to meet the deadlines to file an appeal so that your case can be reviewed by the appellate court. Our Jacksonville appeals attorneys review your case comprehensively and order a copy of your trial transcripts for assessment to determine if an appeal is the best route.
