Criminal Appeals

The attorneys at Mischel & Horn, P.C., have clerked for appellate judges. We know what to look for to get a case reopened and qualified for an appeal. We will review all the facts of your original case and how it was handled in determining an opportunity for an appeal, such as:

  • Was evidence handled improperly?
  • Was illegal search and seizure a factor in your case?
  • Were police procedures followed?
  • Were you read your Miranda rights? Were any of your rights not protected?
  • How did your lawyer handle your case?
  • Was there legal malpractice in missed deadlines or incompetent representation?
  • Was anything overlooked?
  • Did police bias play a part?
  • Is there new evidence to consider?
  • Are there new tests such as DNA testing that could prove your innocence?

Our attorneys are thorough and knowledgeable in criminal appeals, which is why we win so many cases.
