Attorney for Criminal Appeals in Tampa
An appeal is a legal request for relief from an appellate court. It is not a new trial. But a hearing on a specific legal issue. An appeal from the state court is first heard by one of the Florida District Court of Appeals. An appeal from a federal court is first heard by the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in Atlanta, Georgia.
If you hire an appellate attorney to appeal your case, a notice of appeal must be filed within 30 days in state court or 10 days in federal court. All of the motions, pleadings, and transcripts of your case will be sent up to the higher court by the clerk of court.
You are hiring a lawyer to carefully review every aspect of your case, including challenges to rulings on pretrial motions, ruling at trial, whether the evidence at trial was sufficient, and challenges to the judgment and sentence imposed by the court. Once the first rounds of appeals (called direct appeals) are over, you can pursue certain post-conviction motions (also known as a 3.850).
