- Armed robbery

Potential Outcomes in a Violent Crime Appeal
Most often, the best outcome we can hope to achieve in a violent crime appeal case is a new trial. This new trial would then give us a chance to seek a lesser sentence or a not-guilty finding. The benefit of a new trial is that it allows us to proceed in your defense in a trial free from errors.
On rare occasions, an appellate court will dismiss the criminal charges completely. We will thoroughly evaluate your situation to determine if this possibility may be available to you.
