Chicago Criminal Appeals Attorney
Need to Appeal a Conviction? Let’s Talk About Your Case:(312) 883-9466
Once you have received a criminal conviction from a court, you have the option of appealing this decision to a higher court. When you file an appeal, you are asking the higher court to review the decision of the lower court for any errors or misconduct that may have affected your case. You may be able to reverse your conviction.

Appealing a Conviction in Chicago
Not everyone has the right to an appeal. In most cases, only defendants who were convicted by a judge or jury in a trial have the right to appeal. If you pled guilty to the crime, you may not be eligible to appeal your conviction.
Valid reasons for an appeal include:
- Judicial misconduct
- Incorrect jury instructions
- Errors of law
- Improperly admitted evidence
- Insufficient evidence to support the verdict
- Ineffective assistance of counsel
