LANSING CRIMINAL APPEALS FIRM
FIGHTING UNFAVORABLE RULINGS
After a long and stressful trial, there is nothing worse than receiving a ruling that is not in your favor. Whether your trial counsel was unprepared or the court ruled unfairly, you deserve to appeal an unfavorable decision.
Effective criminal appeals lawyers are strong researchers and writers. Our attorneys are both of these things Dustyn and his team have helped several clients fight back against rulings they were not happy with. Our firm is ready to do the same for you.
THE APPEALS PROCESS
When taking on an appeal case, Coontz Law will thoroughly assess the final judgment and the record of your case. Your attorney will take the time to carefully comb through these documents and transcripts to understand the circumstances of your case. From there, your attorney will build their argument.
What if the appeals court refuses to review any information or evidence that was not presented in the initial trial? This means that your appeals attorney must get creative and find a new perspective or angle from which to approach your case.
APPEALS ARE DECIDED BY A PANEL OF THREE JUDGES WHO MAY
- Uphold the lower court’s decision
- Overturn the lower court’s decision
- Send the case back to the trial court for further action or a new trial
