The Keys to a Successful Appeal
At Bachner & Associates, P.C., we handle a wide range of criminal defense issues, including appeals on the state and federal level. With skillful legal representation, it is possible to get convictions overturned, sentences reduced and achieve other favorable outcomes at the appellate level.
In approaching an criminal appeal, we will carefully examine every aspect of the original trial, looking for:
- Evidence and testimony that should have been thrown out, but wasn't
- Evidence and testimony that may have helped you, but was wrongly thrown out
- Wrongly upheld motions
- Wrongly overturned motions
- Failure of the judge to properly instruct the jury on their responsibilities
- Inappropriate sentencing
The appellate level is different than the trial level in many ways. Our attorneys have significant experience practicing in appellate courts throughout New York and New Jersey. We are well-versed in the rules and procedures of appellate courts and have the necessary written and oral advocacy skills to achieve success on this level.
