Although most lawyers and judges try their best to make certain that the law is properly applied and followed in court cases, it is common for mistakes to be made. When that occurs, it may be necessary to appeal your case to the Georgia Court of Appeals or Georgia Supreme Court.
More importantly, appeals are a fairly specialized area of law that most firms simply do not have the proper experience to take on. Technical rules must be followed, including strict time limits and proper subject matter. Many issues are even discretionary as to whether or not the Appellate Courts will review your case or not. Having an experienced lawyer represent you in an appeal who understands these components and has handled a wide variety of appeals that cover all types of different issues can make a critical difference.
At Christopher T. Adams, P.C., we invite the opportunity to speak with people from the Atlanta metro and surrounding areas, and review the issues of your case to evaluate the possibilities or need for an appellate petition. To schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your appellate needs with the experienced and successful Lawrenceville criminal appeal lawyer, Christopher Adams, call us today at 800-582-0304.
We frequently handle criminal law and other types of appeals when it becomes necessary to contest a jury's unfair guilty verdict, expose a procedural error, prove a judge's overly harsh sentence or present new, crucial evidence. We represent our own clients in this capacity, and we also accept referrals from other attorneys to serve as co-counsel in the Court of Appeals or Georgia Supreme Court. We have handled cases involving a variety of technical topics in many areas of law from criminal defense to family law and juvenile law matters.
