How Appeals Work

Appeals in Pennsylvania state and federal courts differ significantly from trials. When a case is on appeal, the appellate lawyer is seeking to demonstrate that the trial court committed an error which entitles the defendant to the requested relief, whether that be a new trial, a resentencing, or a complete dismissal of the charges.

The manner in which relief is sought can vary substantially from case to case. For example, in some cases, the government’s case may have to be reviewed in total so that the appellate court can be shown that it failed to make out the charges against the defendant. In other cases, a single incorrect evidentiary ruling by the trial judge might be enough to overturn a verdict.

Because appeals are subject to complex procedures and rules, clients and their loved ones should seek a Pennsylvania appellate lawyer with the knowledge required to properly file, brief, and argue an appeal, as well as significant experience in appellate matters. The Philadelphia criminal defense lawyers at Krasner & Long have successfully handled hundreds of appellate matters in Pennsylvania’s state and federal courts.

Where to Go from Here

If you have been convicted of a crime, the law only permits you a certain amount of time to seek relief by appeal. It is imperative to contact a knowledgeable Philadelphia appellate lawyer as soon as possible to discuss possible courses of action.
