Dallas Criminal Appeal Lawyer
Get Help Appealing Your Conviction
Individuals who are convicted of crimes have the opportunity to appeal their case to a higher court in the hopes of receiving a dismissal, a re-trial, or the possibility of re-sentencing. If you wish to be granted an appeal, you must prove that there were legal mistakes that directly contributed to the outcome of the trial. If your sentence was unfairly reached due to such circumstances, Attorney Peter Barrett can help.
The Texas Appeals Process
Appeals are not simply repeat trials; the Texas appeals court does not consider any new evidence, but instead focuses on the proceedings of the lower court.
An appeal will review everything recorded on the court reporter's transcript, including:
- Statements made by the judge, jury, prosecutor, witnesses, and anyone else who participated in the trial's proceedings
- Any evidence that was submitted during the trial
- Briefs filed by each side which may explain why the legal process was incorrect in the case
Attorney Peter Barrett's vast amount of legal knowledge in criminal defense and appellate law can help you successfully file an appeal. As your advocate, he will present you with as many options as possible. You can count on him to provide you with the respect and courtesy you deserve as he guides you through the complex and often overwhelming appeals process.
