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.
