"Justice for all" - the criminal justice system can and does get in wrong. We have solicitors who specialise in appellate work, both in appeals agaisnt conviction and sentence.
Appeals against conviction
ALL LIFE SENTENCED CASES CONSIDERED.
We understand that many things can result in a wrongful conviction such as:
* Prosecution non-disclosure of evidence
* Police error or misconduct
* Improperly obtained confessions
* Flawed identification
* Flawed scientific or forensic evidence
* Poor defence lawyer team
WE CAN GET LEGAL AID UNDER THE ADVICE & ASSISTANCE SCHEME (where applicable).
Please write to us or call for further details.
We can help! We can look through your case and provide you with an opinion on whether you have any merits in appealing. This work is time consuming and involves a thorough analysis of your case. Maybe there is now fresh evidence that has come to light which was not available at the time of your trial. All of this matters.
It can be a long and difficult task in overturning a conviction and those who have been wrongly convicted face a struggle to put the wheels of justice into reverse. It is so important that you and we work together as a team to ensure that we get things properly prepared and right before lodging any grounds for appeal. You will need a committed solicitor throughout this process.
Due to the time consuming nature of appeals against conviction, we only concentrate on the most serious cases where the client has been sentenced to a term of imprisonment of at least 10 years or more.
Appeals against sentence
* Did an error occur in the sentencing process?
* Was the sentence passed much more than was expected?
* Was the sentence not justified by law?
If any of the above rings true, call us. We can look into your case and advise on whether the sentence can be reduced based on the above principles.
