Were You Unfairly Convicted? Exercise Your Right To Appeal.
The criminal justice system moves quickly. Unfortunately, the system can make mistakes. Erroneous applications of law, mistakenly admitted evidence, prosecutorial misconduct and the purposeful or inadvertent withholding of exculpatory evidence may be grounds to appeal a trial court verdict.
When you are considering taking on such a monumental challenge, you need seasoned professionals at your side, criminal law attorneys with years of experience in Virginia’s Appellate Courts. You need the representation found at Cosby & Calhoun
Over 50 Combined Years Of Criminal Law Experience At Your Disposal
Our criminal defense lawyers, Charles Cosby, Jr. and Kevin Calhoun, have dedicated their practice not only to criminal defense but also to fighting on appeal to protect the rights of defendants in Central Virginia. They are selective about the cases they take, which allows them to give you individualized counsel. Mr. Cosby has worked on appellate cases to aid the Virginia Supreme Court, which is the highest state appellate court. By combining their considerable skill and knowledge, they offer you the high-quality criminal appeal representation you need and the personal attention you deserve.
Why It Is Crucial To Act Quickly
Time is of the essence. If you are interested in pursuing an appeal, you need to act quickly to meet filing deadlines and preserve the trial court’s record and evidence. Whether you are interested in appealing a conviction for a drug crime, homicide, malicious wounding, theft, sex crime, or some other serious offenses, it is important to understand that appellate representation requires an entirely different skill set than trial court advocacy. Lawyers handling criminal appeals must be able to build a case around the trial court transcripts and records, and be able to persuasively argue for a reversal of the prior court’s decision. An appeal is an uphill battle, as a judge or a jury has already made an adverse decision.
