Have you been convicted, sentenced, placed on supervision, or incarcerated for a crime? Do you believe some sort of error occurred in your case? Are you dissatisfied with the outcome? Call me today to discuss what options you may have on appeal.
It is VERY IMPORTANT that you contact me QUICKLY. Your right to appeal is subject to several deadlines. In most cases you have thirty (30) days from the date of your sentence, in some cases ninety (90) days if a Motion for New Trial is filed, to give notice of your intent to appeal. If you fail to do so within those deadlines, you severely limit your opportunity to be heard.
If you are currently incarcerated there are State and Federal remedies to contest your continuing incarceration, including through a series of Writs. However, there are strict guidelines and procedures that you must follow to file a proper appeal. Failure to observe the many rules and regulations set forth by the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure and by the local rules and unwritten rules of practice in the various Courts of Appeal can result in technical denials where the Court does not even reach the merits of your case.
If you try to file an appeal by yourself, you still must follow all of the rules and procedures as an Appellate Lawyer and you must correctly interpret and apply the law applicable to your case, despite lacking the training and experience to do so effectively. The appeal process is fraught with hurdles and land mines for the unwary.
Don’t try to do this alone. Call me now. I will review your case, discuss your options with you, and help you find and assert the most effective arguments to present to an Appellate Court.
