Appeals Attorneys in Douglas County

Challenging Conviction and Sentencing Decisions

Even if your criminal trial resulted in a conviction, it does not mean your case is over. If a legal error occurred during the process, you may be able to file an appeal to have the original decision reversed.

At Howard & Arca Attorneys at Law, we have decades of combined experience in the criminal justice system, and we know the process for successfully challenging a judge’s decision. We will conduct a detailed review of your original case to identify procedural errors and work toward getting your conviction overturned.

For results-focused representation, call us at (678) 922-9743.

The Appeals Process

In Georgia, you have 30 days from the original judgment to submit your request for appeal. A panel of judges from the appellate court will review the case record and briefs provided by your attorney and the prosecutor to determine if any errors occurred at your trial. In some cases, the attorneys may be called in to make oral statements about the original trial.

Because this process relies mainly on written arguments provided by your attorney, it is important to have a lawyer on your side who can develop briefs that clearly state the grounds for your appeal. Our Douglas County appeals lawyers are skilled at crafting written documents that eloquently argue the reasons for a reversal of the original decision.
