What Does the Georgia Court of Appeals Do?

It is the intermediate appellate court in Georgia. They have statewide appellate jurisdiction of all cases except those involving constitutional questions, murder, and habeas corpus cases where original appellate jurisdiction lies with the Supreme Court. The Court of Appeals may certify legal questions to the Supreme Court.

Appellate & Post-Conviction Legal Representation

Our appellate lawyers have extensive experience representing clients in criminal trial practice at the state and federal levels. There are two types of grounds for filing an appeal, including the judge making a serious error during the trial or a trial attorney providing ineffective assistance of counsel. Our attorneys will carefully evaluate your original case to determine if errors were made that could result in having your conviction reversed.

Our McDonough criminal appellate attorneys appeal cases in order to:

  • Obtain a new trial
  • Reduce a federal sentence
  • Withdraw a plea
  • Vacate a case

What Happens When an Appeal is Accepted?

When an appeal is accepted, there are a few things that can happen in McDonough:

  • The judge can reverse the conviction and remand back to the trial court for a new trial.
  • The court can keep the conviction the way it is (“affirming the conviction”).
  • The judge can remand the case back to the trial court for additional proceedings.

What Our Law Firm Can Offer You

We know that the criminal justice system has its flaws. Too often are people treated unfairly due to discrimination and law enforcement’s overzealous need to make arrests to meet quotas. People may treat you like you’re already guilty after an arrest, and it can feel like no one is on your side.

Our firm was founded to help people. We advocate for our clients no matter how serious the charges. Additionally, if you were unjustly convicted of a crime, we can represent you in the appeals process. Justice only works when people are treated fairly and given the right opportunities to make up for any wrongdoing, which is why we are advocates for rehabilitation.
