Is It Possible to File an Appeal for My Case?

October 7, 2015

When someone is convicted of a crime in Texas, they may get the opportunity to file an appeal regarding their case. This is usually done in an attempt to get a different verdict from the one that was established at a trial. Although many defendants are able to file appeals, there is not a right to file an appeal in every case. In most situations, the right to an appeal depends on the facts of a specific case.

Appeals must be filed according to a specific process. Knowing more about the steps of this process can help defendants find the right type of legal representation for their case.
