Here’s a snapshot of the process of appealing your conviction or sentence in a Detroit Michigan federal criminal or civil case:

  1. File the notice of appeal within fourteen days of being awarded the sentence. As the courts are very strict about deadlines, time is of the essence and you cannot afford to delay filing the appeal.
  2. You will then need to file docketing statements with the court so the clerk’s office can get familiarized with your case.
  3. Post-filing, the court will give you a briefing schedule, and you have 45 days to file your opening brief, where your appeals attorney will present your case to the court.
  4. The government will also file its brief, responding to your arguments and presenting their side of the case.
  5. Your attorney will then file a reply brief responding to the points made by the government and asserting the points made in the opening brief.
  6. The appeal is then heard by a panel of three federal circuit judges, who may order an oral argument or decide the case without it. Statistics from U.S Courts indicate that up to 75 per cent of federal appellate cases are decided without oral argument.

Michigan Appeals are demanding and challenging, which makes it critical to engage the services of a knowledgeable and experienced Michigan federal appeals attorney who can present aggressive representation. While there is never a guarantee about the outcome of the appeal, many have been successful in providing plaintiffs the relief they seek and deserve.
