Austin Criminal Appeals Attorneys

Experienced Counsel for Criminal Appeals in Austin, TX

If you have been convicted of a crime in Austin, and you believe that there were errors or injustices during your trial, you may be able to file an appeal. A criminal appeal is a legal process in which a higher court reviews the decisions made in your original trial. It is important to understand that an appeal is not a new trial, but rather a chance for you to present arguments as to why the previous outcome was flawed.

At Pullan & Young, we understand the importance of protecting your rights and ensuring that every avenue of defense is explored. With years of experience handling criminal appeals, Attorney Corey Young has the knowledge and skills necessary to guide you through this complex process. Our firm focuses on providing aggressive representation, and we will work tirelessly to fight for your freedom.

The Steps in the Criminal Appeal Process

During your appeal, we can assist with:

  • Consultation: Attorney Young will evaluate your case, review your trial transcripts, identify potential grounds for appeal, and give you an honest assessment of your chances of success.
  • Notice of Appeal: If there are valid grounds for an appeal, Attorney Young will file a Notice of Appeal within the specified timeframe after the verdict or judgment is rendered against you.
  • Appellate Briefs: After the notice is filed and accepted by the appellate court, both sides—the appellant (the party filing the appeal) and the appellee (the opposing party or the government)—will submit written briefs outlining their respective positions on whether errors occurred during the original trial or sentencing. In these briefs:
    • The appellant presents arguments as to why the original trial was unfairly or improperly conducted. This may include claims of evidence mishandling, prosecutorial misconduct, ineffective assistance of counsel, improper jury instructions, or other legal errors.
    • The appellee responds to these arguments and defends the integrity of the original trial. They may present rebuttal arguments to refute any allegations made by the appellant.
  • Oral arguments: After the briefs have been submitted, oral arguments may be scheduled before an appellate panel. During oral arguments, attorneys for both sides have the opportunity to present their cases and answer questions from the judges on the panel. This is a critical stage where Attorney Corey Young will skillfully advocate for your rights and highlight any errors made during your trial.
  • Appellate Court Decision: Following oral arguments, the appellate court will review all relevant documents and consider both written and oral arguments from both sides before issuing a decision on your appeal.
