San Diego Appeals Lawyers

San Diego Appeals Lawyers

Our San Diego appeals lawyers are educated, experienced and here to help you with your case on appeal. Many cases end with convictions. If you or a loved one was wrongfully sentenced, you need help from San Diego appeals lawyers. Judges make mistakes, so it is possible to have a case ruling overturned. At Beles Law, we are an appeals law firm in San Diego that understands California’s rules and standards. We will discuss your case and help you receive the opportunity to have your sentence reviewed.

Grounds For Appeal

There are a number of grounds to begin an appeal. These reasons include:

  • A judge erroneously denied requests to admit certain evidence.
  • There was prosecution misconduct.
  • Erroneous instructions were given to the jury.
  • A sentence was given that does not comply with the law.

If you feel your conviction was due to the above reasons, you should consult with an appeals attorney in San Diego or Bakersfield.

The San Diego Appeals Process

In San Diego, a traffic or misdemeanor case on appeal will be heard by a three-judge panel in Appellate Court. A felony case appeal is heard in the Court of Appeals, Fourth District. A case on appeal does not involve a new trial. It is a request to have a different court review a verdict. Since the average person may not know how to begin the San Diego appeals process or adhere to its strict timeline, it is vital to have assistance from an experienced appeals attorney in San Diego. The steps of appeal are: 1. Court decision is made. 2. Losing party files a Notice of Appeal. 3. Court Clerk notifies all parties and Appellate Court. 4. Trial record is submitted to Appellate Court. 5. Both sides submit written briefs, including their arguments. 6. Case is assigned a date. 7. Judges review the court records, briefs, and applicable laws and proceedings. 8. Oral arguments are heard. 9. On a three-judge panel, two must agree to form a majority. 10. The decision is filed and mailed to both parties. 11. The losing side may ask the Appellate Court to rehear the case, which is called a Petition for Rehearing. 12. The losing side may file to a transfer of the appeal to the Court of Appeal, which is called an Application for Certification to Court of Appeal.
