Appeal a criminal conviction or sentence

If you have been convicted of a criminal offense in the United Kingdom, you may have the right to appeal the conviction or sentence. The appeal process can be complex and it is important to seek legal representation from an experienced criminal appeal solicitor.

Our team of criminal appeal solicitors specialize in helping individuals who have been wrongly convicted or who believe they have received an unjust sentence. We understand the gravity of a criminal conviction and the impact it can have on your life and future opportunities. That’s why we will work tirelessly to build a strong case on your behalf and help you navigate the appeal process.

There are different grounds on which you can appeal a criminal conviction or sentence, including:

  • New evidence that was not available at the time of the trial
  • Errors in the way the trial was conducted
  • The sentence is too harsh or unjust
  • The conviction is unsafe

We will thoroughly review the evidence, including any witness statements and medical records, to identify any weaknesses or inconsistencies in the prosecution’s case. We will also gather evidence in your favor, such as character references and expert testimony, to present to the court.

We will provide you with clear, straightforward advice throughout the legal process and will work closely with you to ensure that you understand your rights and options. We will also represent you in court, ensuring that your case is presented in the strongest possible light.

It is important to note that the appeal process can be complex and there may be strict time limits for bringing an appeal, that’s why it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible.

Additionally, it is important to understand that the appeal process can be time-consuming and may require a significant investment of time, energy and financial resources. Our solicitors will work with you to understand your goals and priorities, and will provide you with realistic expectations of the outcome of the appeal.

It is also important to note that the outcome of an appeal is not guaranteed, and the court may uphold the original conviction or sentence. However, our solicitors will work tirelessly to build the strongest possible case on your behalf, and will do everything in their power to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

In the event that your appeal is successful, the court may quash the conviction or reduce the sentence. In some cases, the court may also order a retrial.
