The Texas Courts of Appeal is a judicial system consisting of a set of fourteen appellate courts. The Courts of Appeal do not retry cases or hear testimony; rather, they rule on an appeal based on the record from the original trial or proceeding. The issues for review can range from an incorrect application of law and incorrect admissibility of evidence to insufficient evidence, and in rare cases, the ineffective assistance of trial counsel.

Contact Texas appellate attorney Robert Sirianni at (888) 233-8895.

Our attorneys file a written argument known as a brief detailing the issues, which includes challenges to the trail court findings or rulings, precedents set by previous court rulings, and applicable statutes. The opposing party then files a responsive brief. After the briefs have been filed, the case is assigned to a panel of justices. An oral argument may sometimes be scheduled, which gives both parties an opportunity to argue their positions and the appellate judges to question attorneys on the issues raised.

After reviewing the brief and oral argument, a decision is reached, and a written statement known as an opinion is then filed. In a state appeal, decisions taken by the Courts of Appeal can be subject to discretionary review by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.  We also represent clients on federal criminal healthcare fraud appeals in US District Courts. In federal cases, decisions based on the U.S Constitution and federal statutes may be subject to discretionary review by the US Supreme Court.

If the appellant has lost an appeal, he/she has the chance to move up the legal chain and file for post-conviction relief. This is a long process, especially for serious felonies, but one worth pursuing to challenge guilty verdicts and rectify violations of constitutional rights.

Theisen v. State of Texas

November 13, 2014; Case No. 04-00637

During Voir Dire, at least one juror explained she would likely become biased against Theisen if the victim’s family was particularly emotional or reacted in a certain way during trial. She explained the emotions and reactions of the family could negatively affect her ability to consider the entire range of punishment in this case.

Did the trial court abuse its discretion in denying Theisen’s motion for mistrial where the victim’s son screamed an obscenity at Theisen during the trial, told Theisen to look at what he had done, charged at Theisen and had to be escorted out of the courtroom by deputies, all in front of the jury?
