At The Blanch Law Firm, our criminal defense attorney team specializes in criminal appeals, a complicated and often vital part of any case. A criminal appeals attorney could be your last hope for avoiding jail time, heavy fines, years of probation and much more. Our team is comprised of attorneys who know and understand criminal from the inside out. Our criminal appeals lawyers operate very differently from the rest of our criminal defense and criminal trial practice. The reason for that is one of necessity, which is discussed herein. The required knowledge of criminal law is the same for every attorney practicing with us, but the procedure and strategy employed in an appeal is entirely unique. This is why we recommend hiring a criminal appeals lawyer only where that lawyer can be free of the routine day to day distractions associated with the criminal trial practice. We have in-depth knowledge of the New York Court of Appeals, as well as other appeals courts.
