Honolulu Appeals Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Honolulu Appeals Attorney

If you need an Appeals Attorney in Honolulu, that means things did not go well for you with your case. But, the fight is not over. Unless you formally waived your right to appeal, you may still be entitled to relief from the appellate court. Even if you did formally waive your right to an appeal because you cannot waive all your rights, you may still have a legal avenue to pursue. The key is, finding an experienced and aggressive appeals attorney. Not all criminal defense attorneys have the experience to effectively represent clients in appellate court.

You need an experienced criminal defense attorney who knows what issues can be raised on appeal. There may have been legal issues at your trial that an experienced appeals attorney could use to file a successful appeal in your case. These issues could include problems with the jury, such as jury selection, jury instructions, or juror misconduct. Other possible issues may include, evidentiary issues, prosecutorial misconduct, failure to suppress unconstitutionally obtained evidence, or other erroneous judicial decisions.

Reasons to file an appeal may include:

  • Newly discovered information
  • Legal errors at trial or sentencing
  • Insufficient evidence
  • Misconduct

If your lawyer does not know what issues to raise, it could be the difference between a successful appeal or an unsuccessful appeal. The lawyers at The Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm have many years of experience in all these areas. We are experienced in both state court appeals as well as federal appeals.

There are also time limits to be aware of as well. Before any of these issues can be raised, it is important to file a timely notice of appeal, followed by a properly written and persuasive appellate brief. These issues will then require an experienced appellate attorney to argue these issues in appellate court. Our attorneys have experience in all aspects of appellate litigation.

It is important to note that in cases where a defendant accepted a plea bargain, the right of appeal is usually waived if the plea agreement is accepted and followed. But, even in those cases, you still may seek relief in the form of what is known as collateral review or a federal 2255 post-conviction relief proceeding.

The Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm has represented hundreds of clients in both state and federal appellate matters, as well as state and federal post-conviction proceeding matters. We also have experience successfully arguing appellate issues before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
