Massachusetts Criminal Appeals
Fight for Your Freedom Even if You Were Convicted of a Crime
Even if you took your criminal case to trial and were convicted of a misdemeanor or felony crimes, you still have legal options to appeal your conviction and fight for your freedom.
It is your right to have your criminal trial case reviewed by a higher Massachusetts court, such as the Appeals Court or the Supreme Judicial Court, and challenge any erroneous rulings by the judge on the evidence or on the law; the prosecutor's conduct during the case; or even your trial attorney's handling of your defense.
A criminal appeal can challenge a wide variety of issues, even those that might have occurred before trial. For instance, your criminal trial lawyer might have litigated a Motion to Dismiss that should have been granted by the judge; or the prosecutor might have withheld evidence; or a Motion to Suppress was improperly denied that could have changed your chances at trial or in some cases, even resulted in a dismissal.
An appeal of your criminal case could also challenge things that occurred during the trial itself, such as mistakes on rulings of law or evidence by the judge; improper questioning or arguments by the prosecutors; and mistakes or omissions in your defense by your trial attorney.
If you have been convicted of a crime, contact Massachusetts Criminal Appeals Lawyer Lefteris K. Travayiakis review your criminal case to evaluate whether there are any issues for your appeal and challenge your conviction if any mistakes were made. A successful appeal could result in getting your conviction reversed, a reduced sentence, or even a retrial.
