Experienced Trial Attorneys Standing Up for Your Rights in Minneapolis

Minneapolis Federal & State Appeals Lawyer

Helping You Find Justice

The appeals process is in place for people convicted of crimes who feel like they did not get a fair trial. If you feel that there are grounds for an appeal and the court system feels the same way, you may be granted the opportunity for evidence in your case to be looked at again. This means you can be defended again and your conviction could possibly be overturned. This is something that can be done on both the state and federal levels, and requires an attorney who is well-versed in both state and federal appeals processes.

The Minneapolis appeals attorneys at Meshbesher & Associates have years of experience helping clients seek and obtain justice. We work tirelessly to examine all the details of your conviction, and determine the best strategy for appealing it.

Do You Have Grounds for an Appeal?

Some individuals hesitate to speak to an attorney about filing an appeal; it may be because they are not sure if they have grounds for it, and are afraid to ask if they don't. While the U.S. justice system is thorough, mistakes can be made. Sometimes this is due to a faulty defense the first time around, but there could be other factors that came into play, like a tainted jury. Such fatal flaws in the system can work against you.

These flaws include:

  • Testimony that was improperly allowed
  • Errors in instructions given to the jury
  • Procedural errors
  • Evidence that was not included and should have been
  • Prejudicial evidence
  • Testimony that was not allowed and should have been
  • Corrupt jurors

The list can go on, but if any of the above exists or if there are any other factors that could have influenced the outcome of your case, you have grounds for an appeal. Your Minneapolis federal and state appeals lawyer at Meshbesher & Associates can file that on your behalf.

Civil Appeals vs. Criminal Appeals

Civil court and criminal court are two completely different court systems. This is because civil court deals with monetary awards, while criminal court deals with the actual trying of the crime in question. Civil court does not deal with the crime itself.

In civil cases, jury awards have been overturned due to appeals as well as other verdicts. In criminal cases, harsh sentences have been overturned for more favorable sentences, while there have been cases that have been completely dismissed and an individual's conviction totally overturned. This has resulted in a lot of innocent people being set free after being wrongfully imprisoned or having their permanent record tainted in a way that significantly impacts their future.
