Criminal Appeals

Experience + Meticulous Research

Appeals of criminal convictions are often extremely high stakes: After all, a client’s family, livelihood, freedom and even life can be at risk.

The complexity and extensive procedural requirements associated with the appeal of a criminal conviction may seem daunting on the surface, but experienced appellate attorneys understand that these rules may offer opportunities for a reversal of the conviction or a reduction of the sentence.

Harris Appeals, P.A. has the depth of experience necessary to help research and develop appeals focused tightly on both procedural errors or tangential issues which can be successfully attacked.


Our approach at Harris Appeals:

Overturning the Conviction is a Possibility

In short, a criminal conviction is not usually the end but often the beginning of a renewed effort involving the defendant’s trial attorney and an appellate lawyer to achieve justice.

Teamwork is a Must

Certainly, teamwork is a key to success, as is thorough and meticulous research by the client’s legal team. This is where a knowledgeable appellate attorney plays a huge role.

Identifying the Possible Errors

Our team is adept at identifying which error(s) leading to the conviction can be used as the basis for a successful appeal.

Efficiently Navigating Deadlines

Our team is also extremely knowledgeable in the exacting deadlines which, if missed, can lead to the appeal being dismissed.
