A Conviction May Not Be The End: The Appeals Process

If you believe you have been unfairly or wrongfully convicted of a crime, you may be able to appeal the decision to a higher court. However, the appeals process can be difficult and time-consuming, requiring an experienced, diligent attorney who understands the unique rules and regulations of appellate courts.

This is an area of the law many lawyers are reluctant to handle, and the importance of retaining an attorney who has handled appeals cases many times over cannot be overstated. In his 30 years of criminal defense practice, attorney Mitch Durham has successfully handled many appeals in Georgia and federal courts of appeals.

Mr. Durham's appellate practice includes preparing and filing petitions, briefs and motions to federal and Georgia appellate courts, and participating in oral arguments before the Georgia Supreme Court and the Georgia Court of Appeals.

A Fresh Perspective For Complex Cases

In the appeals process, you are asking a higher court to review the decision a lower court made. If the appeals court determines that the lower court made a mistake in your conviction or sentence, you may get a new trial or a new sentence — and in some situations, your case may be dismissed entirely.

Mitch Durham will carefully analyze the details of your case to ensure the best possible chance of a successful appeal. You will always work directly with Mr. Durham, benefiting from his deep experience in criminal law.
