As an experienced lawyer, I understand the gravity of a conviction at trial and the potential consequences, including financial penalties, loss of employment, or even loss of liberty. However, it is important to know that a conviction does not have to end your case. The first step in pursuing a potential appeal is filing a motion for a new trial and filing a notice of appeal if denied. Under US law, you have the right to appeal the jury’s verdict, the court’s rulings, and the sentence imposed to challenge whether you received a fair trial. With extensive appellate practice in state and federal courts, I have experience handling cases involving constitutional law, police misconduct, civil rights, criminal defense law, and evidence.
