Can I Succeed on a Criminal Appeal?

If you or someone close to you has been convicted of a state crime, it is important to consult with an experienced criminal appeal attorney as soon as possible. You may have the opportunity to successfully reverse your conviction on appeal. I am experienced in all types of criminal cases including crimes of violence, such as murder, sex crimes and assault, theft and embezzlement, crimes relating to the use, possession and distribution of drugs and narcotics, weapons offenses and white collar crimes.

Processes and Procedures in State Criminal Appeals

If you are considering filing a state appeal, you must take action as soon as possible. In the state of Colorado, you have 45 days to file a notice of appeal. As your advocate, I will review the underlying case, including statements and testimony, and prepare an effective opening brief in the Colorado Court of Appeals. If the court of appeals rejects your appeal, it may be possible to seek review of that decision in the Colorado Supreme Court.
