Can You Help Me File An Appeal?

Although prosecutors and law enforcement officials are supposed to take great precautions 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 that you did not commit. Mr. Thompson is highly experienced at filing appeals for individuals like yourself, and he takes the time to explore the entire process which led up to your conviction to determine where the mistake was made.

A few defense strategies he 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
