Your Partners For Securing Legal Justice in Houston, Texas

The criminal appeals process is a complex and intricate legal pathway allowing defendants to challenge their convictions or sentences. In Houston, Attorney Corey Young has extensive experience in criminal appeals, and he can provide valuable assistance to those seeking justice following a wrongful conviction.

Understanding the Criminal Appeals Process

At its core, a criminal appeal allows a person who has been convicted of a crime to present their case to an appellate court if they believe errors were made during their trial. The primary goal of an appeal is not to retry the case, but rather to seek redress for procedural errors or violations of constitutional rights. The process of filing an appeal will involve the following steps:

  • Notice of Appeal: After a trial court convicts or sentences a defendant, the defendant must begin the appeals process by filing a notice of appeal within certain time limits. A skilled appellate attorney like Corey Young will ensure that these crucial deadlines are met correctly.
  • Record Preparation: A key aspect of any successful appeal is identifying issues in the original trial record that support grounds for overturning a conviction or sentence. During this phase, Mr. Young will carefully review all aspects of a case, including transcripts and court records.
  • Legal Research and Brief Writing: An essential component of mounting an effective appeal is conducting extensive research on applicable statutes, prior rulings, precedents, and statute-case comparisons. This research will be used to prepare a persuasive brief that presents arguments that a conviction or sentence was unjust. Drawing on his in-depth knowledge gained from his extensive criminal defense experience, Corey Young excels at synthesizing complex legal issues into concise and persuasive written arguments.
  • Oral Arguments: At this stage, Attorney Young may present oral arguments before an appellate court. This process allows the parties to present their cases orally and respond to questions from a panel of judges, who will ultimately decide the outcome of the appeal. Mr. Young brings his charisma, eloquence, and confidence to effectively articulate arguments during these proceedings.
  • Appellate Court Decision: After reviewing all briefs and oral arguments, the appellate court will issue a decision either affirming the conviction or sentence, revising it based on identified errors, ordering a new trial, or even reversing the conviction entirely.
