NYC Criminal Appeals Lawyers

Raiser & Kenniff, PC, handles criminal appeals in all of New York, including NYC and Long Island. We help handle the direct appeal, or any other form of post-conviction litigation, which involves a lot of work which needs to be done. Our criminal defense lawyers review all the information associated with your case, including looking at issues which may be evident from reviewing the transcripts. Once we spot issues in the transcripts, we spend many long hours of research in order to determine which case law exists – which could be used to appeal your case.

After we find issues which support the fact your rights were broken, we create a legal brief which is drafted to argue to the court that case law + facts of the case, support our position that the conviction be reversed. Immense hard work, and attention to detail, with a large support staff – is why we can help you get the appeal you need. Once the brief is submitted, the criminal court will schedule the case for an oral argument. At this argument our criminal appeals attorneys will be asked numerous questions. The New York Court of Appeals judges will be well prepared, and ask us numerous questions in order to understand if there’s a legitimate ground for the appeal.

Our law firm, founded by former Prosecutors, puts immense work into every single appeal we handle. We have a large team, which means a lot of attention is paid to each and every detail. We take cases, and study the facts and laws until we believe there is a legitimate argument which can be used to win your case. We spend hundreds of hours on every case. We work tirelessly and relentlessly to support the work of our clients.

The majority of criminal appeals are lost. It’s difficult to win a case on appeal, than to win a case in trial. At trial, the defendant is presumed to be innocent. After you lose your trial, that presumption is gone. It makes it more difficult to win an appeal. Winning an appeal is an up-hill battle which is why you want the very best new york criminal attorneys on your side.

It’s crucial that you look at finding the best appeals lawyer. Just because someones a well known trial attorney doesn’t mean they will be a good appeals attorney. Trial lawyers and appeal lawyers are very different in terms of their skill-set and what they do. Trial lawyers have a very different job than an appeals lawyer. To draft an appellate brief, you need to be good at doing research, and paying attention to loop-holes and details in order to draft the appeals brief. Trial lawyers go to court every day. Knowledge of the law is critical to winning an appeal. People who focus on appellate law focus all of their time studying the law in order to find ways to help clients.
