Dedicated Fairfax Criminal Law & Appeals Attorneys Can Help You or Your Loved One

An appeal is when you ask that a higher court review the decision made at trial. You can challenge the sentence you received or you can challenge the conviction itself. Challenging your sentence means you ask for a modified or reduced sentenced but you don’t disagree with the judge’s decision regarding guilt. When you challenge your conviction, you are disagreeing with the judge’s decision that you are guilty of the crime.

The appeals process requires that you make legal arguments since the higher court cannot review factual decisions made by the judge at trial. These legal arguments are made by submitting briefs and motions to the court explaining the law and why the decision was not correct. These cases are best left in the hands of competent and qualified attorney who understands the complexities of the appeals process and can effectively defend your rights.
