Stein Sperling’s criminal law attorneys understand that judges and juries might render a result that is not favorable to our client. We litigate criminal appeals from verdicts handed down in our clients’ cases as well as in cases first defended by other attorneys where a client asks us to take over. When appropriate, we are prepared to write motions for sentence reconsideration, as well as guilt or innocence appeals, for District and Circuit Courts throughout the state.
Before beginning the appeals process, we review the trial record to identify mistakes in how the proceedings were conducted. We then work closely with our clients to draft thorough and compelling appellate briefs, knowing we may have only one opportunity to appeal the court’s decision. In oral arguments, our clients benefit from our attorneys’ extensive experience in bench and jury trials, as well as their ability to present logical, well-prepared, evidence-based claims both creatively and strategically.
