Appeals

Home > How We Can Help > Appeals

New York’s criminal justice system is complex and unfortunately, not every ruling will be favorable. If you received an unfavorable verdict, you should know that it does not mean it’s the end of your defense. If you believe there is more to your story, your case may qualify for an appeal.

The wisest next step is to contact legal professionals with deep experience handling appellate matters.
