San Francisco Criminal Appeals Lawyer

If you have been wrongly convicted of a crime, there are critical time limitations for filing an appeal. An appeal is a request to a higher court to review a decision following a trial or an administrative hearing. It is not unusual for trial judges to make some errors in criminal procedure, admission of evidence, jury instruction, sentencing, etc. Unfortunately, not all errors are susceptible to review and/or remedy through the appellate process. Seth P. Chazin has handled appeals in many courts in the State of California. He knows which issues are currently ripe for review and likely to achieve favorable outcomes.
