EXPERIENCED APPELLATE ATTORNEYS YOU CAN TRUST
When a criminal conviction occurs, you may have cause to appeal the court’s decision. Different regulations apply to appellate cases and require an attorney who understands the complexities of the appeals process. At Gibbs Nolte Campos PLLC, we have established a record of success in the appellate courts representing clients throughout the Dallas metro and Collin County for more than two decades.
UNDERSTANDING THE BASIS FOR APPEALS
When filing an appeal, it falls on the defendant to prove a trial error was made. There are a variety of reasons a conviction may have grounds for an appeal, including:
- Evidence being either improperly admitted or excluded from trial
- Lack of sufficient evidence to support a conviction
- Abuse of discretion by a judge resulting in an unreasonable ruling
- Violation of the defendant’s Sixth Amendment right to adequate representation
- Misconduct on the part of the prosecution or jurors
Effective appellate representation requires detailed research focused on finding legal errors that contributed to a guilty verdict or an unreasonably excessive sentence. The appellate court will look only at the record of the trial. They will not consider new evidence. If issues arise that are not within the record, a writ of habeas corpus can be filed. It is crucial to have an attorney experienced with the laws and procedures associated with these processes to effectively prepare and present a criminal appeals or habeas corpus case.
