Criminal Appeals

NYC and Buffalo Court Of Appeals Attorney

If you were convicted of a crime, you have an automatic right to appeal your case. The Law Offices of John J. Carney have been providing thorough appellate representation in New York's Court of Appeals for more than 30 years.

We have extensive knowledge of the appellate process and complexities. We can explain the long, complex appeals process in-depth with you during a free initial consultation to help reduce misconceptions and align expectations. A lawyer from our firm is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to address your legal concerns.

Making a Case For Bail

Typically, you may wait in jail during the appeals process. We can help make a case for you to receive bail, so you can be with your loved ones pending your appeal. We do a thorough and timely bail request to help minimize the stress and hardships of jail.

Understanding The Process

The appeals process is quite complex due to federal and state processes. Our lawyers have more than 30 years of experience structuring appeals cases.

Effective appellate briefs require intensive research and concise writing. Your appeal must demonstrate compelling arguments for your cause while also complying with current tenets of law and criminal precedence.

Our New York City attorneys stay current with appellate guidelines and precedent. We can provide strong appellate representation because we understand what judges are looking for when they review your appellate brief.

Understanding Your Case

The appeals process requires thorough preparation. Prosecutors are then allotted substantial time to submit their responses before your appeal can be argued in front of the judges.

Certain factors about your initial trial can be cause for an appeal. We dissect your case to find out what mistakes were made by prosecutors or the judge during your trial. We then structure an appropriate appeal to argue your case. Some trial misconduct can include:

  • Wrongfully denied motions
  • Illegally obtained confessions
  • Improper rulings by the court
  • False testimony by witnesses
  • Jury misconduct
Appealing Your Sentence

Our lawyers can help you appeal your sentence. We can argue that you suffered an unfair sentence or unjust conviction. In appealing your sentence, our goal is to provide mitigating circumstances that show that your current outcome is unjust. We argue your case aggressively to help prove to the appellate judges that you deserve a lesser sentence.
