Convicted on criminal charges? You may have the right to appeal

You were picked up on a crime in Georgia. Criminal charges were filed against you, and you ended up being convicted after your case was heard in court. Now what? If any errors made during your trial contributed to your conviction, you may have the right to appeal.

Here's the thing: judgment calls and error in procedure by one's attorney or by the prosecution can wind up costing an accused individual his or her freedom. It happens far more often than you would think. The court system is not perfect. This is why the appeal process was put in place.

If you think you have grounds to appeal your conviction, you only have a small window of time in which to do it. There are certain steps you need to take to pursue an appeal, and it can get overwhelming really fast. Thankfully, you do not have to do it alone.

A conviction is not necessarily the final say in your case; you may be able to keep fighting for your freedom -- even if you entered a guilty plea. How you approach your appeal will matter, though, and the sooner you seek help, the better. A Georgia-based appeals attorney will have the ability to review your criminal charges and how your case played out in court. If any errors in how your case was handled can be identified, steps can be taken to start the appeal process.
