Federal And State Appeals

Experience and Success in State and Federal Appeals

Attorney, Roger H. Sigal, Tucson, Arizona

After a criminal conviction, a person's last hope for vindication or freedom can often lie in an appeal to a state or federal appeals court. As an experienced appeals lawyer licensed to practice in both Arizona and California, I have argued in front of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

In order to make a successful appeal, you need a lawyer who is detail-oriented and creative, as well as knowledgeable of judicial precedents and emerging trends. With over 20 years of experience, I know that attention to the details of my client's case along with careful consideration of the court's recent decisions, often makes all the difference.

I'm a client-focused attorney lending supportive counsel and information to families dealing with the long and difficult criminal appeals processes. Contact me at the Law Offices of Roger H. Sigal to schedule a free one-hour consultation. In Tucson, call 520-777-1242; call toll-free at 1-866-919-3802. Se habla Español.

Important facts about appeals

It's important to understand that an appeal isn't a do-over; you don't get a new trial of the facts of your case. But if your case was wrongly decided, or if the sentence imposed was improper, you do get a chance to prove that to the court.

An argument to a federal appeals court or a state appeals court must be meticulous. An appeal is based on the transcripts of a trial, meaning that a lawyer must be willing to take the time to thoroughly examine those transcripts, do the legal research necessary, and listen carefully to a client and family.

If you would like to discuss your legal situation or begin the appeals process contact me at the Law Offices of Roger H. Sigal. Call 520-777-1242 or toll-free at 1-866-919-3802. Se habla Español.
