Criminal Appeals

The legal system can be intimidating. Many defendants will accept their sentences and endure a lifetime of injustice. Frequently, when a criminal case is examined by a skilled Florida appellate attorney, potential causes for an inappropriate sentence are uncovered. The criminal appeal process is designed to give defendants another chance to present their cases in front of a higher court, such as the Florida Supreme Court.  Although there are many good reasons to seek a criminal appeal, some of the more common mistakes include sentences that were based on inappropriate evidence, prosecutorial errors, and more.  If you believe that you have been wrongly convicted of a crime, proving your innocence can be difficult.
