California Criminal Appeal Lawyer

Los Angeles Criminal Appeals Attorney

The criminal appeal process is a process by which a higher court reviews the decision of a lower court to determine if the lower court may have made a mistake in its verdict. A bit different than a regular trial, an appeal is a legal argument made by your attorney before the higher court (in California that would be the California Supreme Court or the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals) to challenge the decision of the lower court. Again, both sides of the issue are heard, but no new evidence may be admitted unless some exceptional circumstance exists, and no new witnesses are called. The job of the higher court is to listen to arguments both pro and con to the lower court’s decision and examine the trial to determine if the lower court erred in the interpretation or application of law.

Proving a previously convicted defendant is innocent is difficult, but if you have been wrongfully convicted, you do have the right to exercise your right to appeal your case. If you have been wrongfully sentenced or convicted in California, R.J. Manuelian invites you to contact him for a review of your trial.
