Criminal Federal Appeals
Any convicted person has the constitutional right to file for an appeal. By engaging the appellate attorneys, a client will rest easy knowing that his /her case is being handled professionally and within the legal framework. The appeal petition or request is aimed at reversing the judgment by finding fault in the whole judgment process. The criminal defense lawyers will try to convince the appellate court that a procedural or legal error took place during the trial.
A Missouri post-conviction appeals lawyer will file a request for habeas corpus which is aimed at convincing the court that holding the incarcerated person in jail violates the client’s constitutional right. The post-conviction attorney will submit a motion for post-conviction relief immediately after judgment is passed. Our firm also handles appeals in St. Louis and Kansas City.
The motion seeks to compel the trial court to offer a fresh trial for the client. Basically, the lawyer will request the trial court to overlook the decision made by the court jury consequently reconsidering the verdict.
