Judges can be wrong in their rulings. Innocent defendents receive unfair sentences on a regular basis and suffer needlessly. These wrongful convictions occur as the result of common mistakes made during your defense process. In many cases, your verdict can be reversed by a competent appeals attorney.
The legal system can be very intimidating. Many defendants will accept their sentences without question and endure a lifetime of injustice. At Morgan Law Firm I am skilled in finding potential causes for your inappropriate sentence. The criminal appeal process is designed to give defendants another chance to present their case in front of a higher court, such as the Alabama Supreme Court or Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.
We may be able to bring your case to a Higher Court.
There are many good reasons to seek a criminal appeal. Some of the more common mistakes include:
- Defense evidence may have been excluded that should have been heard by the jury.
- The court may have permitted the jury to hear prosecution evidence that should have been excluded.
- Unintentional errors by prosecutors or even intentional misconduct.
- Defense attorneys can make mistakes which deprived the defendant of the effective assistance of counsel.
At Morgan Law Firm I provide competent and professional representation on appeal of adverse decisions from civil, criminal, and post-conviction matters in both Alabama and federal courts.
