Court of Appeals and Michigan Supreme Court Lawyer
Criminal Appellate Lawyers With Vast Experience and a Track Record of Success on Appeals. Handling Cases in the Michigan Supreme Court and Michigan Court of Appeals
Judges can be wrong in their rulings. Innocent Michigan criminal defendants receive unfair sentences on a regular basis and suffer needlessly. These wrongful convictions occur as the result of common mistakes made during the defense process in the trial court. In many cases, seeking a Michigan state appeal or federal criminal appeal with the assistance of an experienced, passionate and zealous criminal appeals lawyer can result in the reversal of a guilty verdict.
The Legal System and the Appellate Process Can be Very Intimidating
Many Michigan defendants accept their sentences without question and they and their families endure a lifetime of injustice. Frequently, when a proficient Michigan appellate lawyer examines a criminal case, a potential basis for reversing an inappropriate sentence or conviction can be uncovered. The criminal appeal process is designed to give convicted defendants another chance to present their case in front of a higher court, such as the Michigan Court of Appeals, Michigan Supreme Court, or Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.
