Los Angeles Appeals Attorney

Appealing A Criminal Conviction

A crime conviction is a very serious situation, and when a conviction was a failure of the justice system, an appeal should be filed. A conviction on a federal offense has especially heavy consequences. Expensive fines, the loss of privileges, and lengthy prison sentences are usual punishments. Law enforcement officers and federal prosecutors are careful when building a case against a suspect, but miscarriages of justice can take place.

Should I File An Appeal?

The legal team at Okabe & Haushalter has extensive experience in defending cases in state and federal courts, and in filing appeals for convicted individuals when justice has not been served. Some errors that could lead to a successful appeal include:

  • The use of evidence against the defendant that has been gathered illegally or without following the proper procedure.
  • The prosecution lying or deliberately misleading the jury.
  • Mistakes made by your attorney in defending you.
  • The barring of crucial evidence for one reason or another that would strengthen your defense.
  • Sentencing not in accordance with the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor, felony, or federal crime and you would like to appeal your conviction, it is very important to talk to a Los Angeles defense attorney immediately. The appeals process is extremely complex and requires an attorney with experience in the system.
