Criminal Appeal Lawyer in Scranton

Convicted of a Crime? You May Be Able to Reverse It.

Individuals who are found guilty of criminal offenses are entitled to an appeal under federal law. Criminal appeals are handled by a higher court which will review the trial and all the information surrounding the trial to possibly reverse the guilty verdict or grant an entirely new trial.

During an appeal, many aspects of the original trial may be challenged, including misconduct on the part of a prosecutor, judicial errors, and ineffective assistance of your original criminal defense attorney. There is only a certain window of time in which a person can file for an appeal so you need to act quickly and hire an attorney from our firm before you lose your chance at making an appeal.

Appeals can be complex and because a different court handles these proceedings it will be necessary for your attorney to have a thorough understanding of the appeals process. At Rogan Law, we will aggressively seek relief through appeals whenever a reversal or retrial is possible, and it will be your attorney's number one goal to obtain a different outcome of your case. The appeals process is never easy and can entail a great deal of work in energy on the part of your lawyer, and the criminal defense attorneys at our Scranton & Wilkes-Barre firm are always willing to put into your case the hard work it deserves.
