Can You Help Me File an Appeal?
Although prosecutors and law enforcement officials are supposed to take
great precaution when they are putting together a case, there is always
room for mistakes. Injustices can occur and this can lead to you being
wrongly convicted of an act which you did not commit. Our legal team is
highly experienced at filing appeals for individuals like yourself and
we take the time to explore the entire process which led up to your conviction
to determine where the mistake was made.
A few defense strategies we may explore include the following:
- Evidence that your defense attorney made mistakes in your initial case
- Evidence that would have strengthened your defense that was left out
- Evidence that the prosecution intentionally misled or lied to the jury
- Evidence that the sentencing did not follow the Federal Sentencing Guidelines
- Evidence that evidence used in the case was gathered illegally
You have the right to an attorney and you should take quick action to hire
a Scranton appeals lawyer to defend you.
