Nashville Appeals Attorney

How Do I File an Appeal in Tennessee?

Our firm takes on a wide variety of appeals cases, including drug charges, white collar crimes, sex crimes, murder, and other violent crimes and felonies. It is important to understand that every conviction cannot be appealed. In order for the appellate court to hear your case, there must be a clear reason. For example, you need to be able to show that some factor could have impacted the outcome of your case.

Some of the reasons for an appeal include:

  • Violation of the right to due process
  • Ineffective counsel at trial
  • Problems with instructions given to the jury

The appeals process can be complex and the court procedures differ from criminal court. A successful appeal requires an attorney with the dedication to uncover factors that can influence an appeal.
