Appeals & Post-Conviction Proceedings

Louisiana Appeals Attorneys

Facing a criminal charge can be an extremely difficult situation. You may be experiencing fear, anxiety, embarrassment, and uncertainty regarding the future. If you are convicted of a criminal offense, then you could face serious penalties depending on the crime you have been charged with allegedly committing. It is important to know your options and to retain the legal assistance that you need in order to understand those options and effectively pursue a favorable outcome for your case. If you are convicted of a criminal offense, then you may be able to appeal the court's decision to a higher court in order to pursue a better judgment, sentence, or even dismissal of charges in some cases.

This appeals process can be difficult, and not all circumstances allow an appeal. If you have been convicted, however, and you qualify for a new hearing or having your case reviewed, then our firm can help you file the appeal with a Louisiana Court of Appeals and pursue a better result. Your case and evidence will be reviewed by three judges who work to determine if the lower court made the right decision. We will not be able to make verbal arguments; however, we will be able to submit arguments via a document called a brief.

Our Approach: Lafayette Criminal Attorneys

With the proper representation and preparation, you may be able to effectively pursue a more-favorable outcome through the appeals process. You need skilled representation on your side, however, and our firm can provide this for you. We understand the severity of the situation at hand because we have helped many other people handle cases involving similar criminal charges in the past, so you can rest assured that we will stand by you from start to finish of your case if you choose to work with us. Your case is important to us. Contact our firm today to discuss your situation and to learn more about how our firm can help you.
