Why do you need an appeals attorney in Fort Bend, TX?

An appeals attorney in Fort Bend, TX can help you navigate the complex appeals process and increase your chances of success. Some specific reasons why you may need an appeals attorney include:

  1. Understanding the rules and procedures of the appeals court: Appellate law is different from trial law and has its own set of rules and procedures that must be followed. An appellate attorney will be familiar with these rules and can ensure that your case is properly presented to the appeals court.
  2. Identifying and preserving errors: An appellate attorney can review the trial court record to identify any errors that may have occurred during the trial that could be grounds for appeal. They can also take steps to preserve these errors for appeal.
  3. Drafting and filing briefs: Appellate attorneys are experienced in drafting briefs, which are legal documents that present the facts and arguments of your case to the appeals court. They can also file these briefs with the appeals court and ensure that they are in compliance with the court's rules and deadlines.
  4. Representing you at oral argument: An appellate attorney can also represent you during oral argument, which is an opportunity for you to argue your case in front of the appeals court. They can help you to prepare for this argument, and to present your case in the most persuasive way possible.
  5. Having a good legal representation: Having a good appellate attorney increases your chances of success by presenting a strong case in the appeals court and to negotiate with the prosecution.

The Criminal Appeals Process

In a criminal appeal process, briefs are submitted to an appellate court along with a copy of the trial transcript. This transcript will be fully reviewed for errors. If errors are found that could have ultimately changed the verdict of the case, then you may be able to change the ultimate outcome of your case. Depending on the nature of the crime that was committed, some cases will allow you to plead guilty to the offense with a sentence of time served.
