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.
