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.

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
