We Do Not Give Up
Successfully appealing a criminal conviction is not easy. Few lawyers have the resources and skill to appeal a guilty verdict. We have found success in cases where other attorneys have given up. We analyze every fact and go through every detail of the trial to find the grounds to overturn a conviction. With so much riding on the outcome of your appeal, you cannot afford to choose an attorney who will not stand up for you.
Mistakes in Your Trial
There are many issues that can be used as the basis for an appeal. Any errors at the trial court level that could have contributed to your guilty verdict, or to the length of your sentence, can be used to make an appeal. Perhaps the instructions to the jury were incorrect. Perhaps evidence that should have been excluded was presented in court. Our extensive trial experience helps us in finding those errors and exposing them. We can handle appeals from guilty verdicts involving drug crimes, DUI, sex crimes, white collar crimes, and any other criminal matter.
The sooner we begin working on your case, the better your chances will be of having a positive outcome. Call us at 1-877-335-6697 or contact us online to speak with an experienced Illinois appellate attorney.
