Helping You Appeal Your Criminal Conviction

Although your criminal trial may be over, you have an opportunity to have your case reviewed by judges in a higher court. If you believe that a mistake was made during your trial, appellate judges will study trial documents to determine whether:

  • Your conviction should be overturned
  • Your sentence should be changed
  • You should receive a new trial

The appeals process is unlike a criminal trial, requiring different legal skills. Therefore, not all criminal defense attorneys are able to represent clients for criminal appeals. At Forney Roth, our lawyers do have the experience and understanding you need to present your case in higher court.

Guiding You Through The Appeals Process

Our founding partners are licensed to practice appellate law in the 8th Circuit Court, which hears arguments for trials held in Nebraska and Iowa. We handle a variety of criminal matters for residents throughout the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area.

When you hire us, our appellate team will take a variety of steps to support your case, including:

  • Review court records for errors or inaccurate interpretations of the law
  • File an appeal or writ with the court
  • Present an argument before appellate judges
  • Appeal this decision in the Supreme Court if required

Your trial may have ended, and you may have been convicted of a crime. However, receiving a sentence from a lower court is not the final step in the criminal process. You have a right to seek out post-conviction options.
