Orlando Appeals Lawyer
Experienced Appellate Attorney Helps Clients in Orlando and Across Central Florida
If a defendant has been found guilty of a criminal offense and they are not satisfied with the outcome because, for example, an error was made during the case or trial or there is evidence of juror misconduct, there may be grounds for a criminal appeal. If the case is eligible for an appeal, a higher court will review the record of the case to see whether the proper procedures were followed and the proper law was applied during the trial. The record consists of the court reporter's transcripts of statements by the judge, attorneys, and witnesses. No new evidence is heard and there is no retrial. Minor legal errors are usually not grounds for a reversal.
If the appeal is won the case will be "remanded,” which means it will be sent back to the trial court or judge responsible for your conviction and/or sentencing.
