Being charged as a criminal is potentially one of the most serious legal issues one could face. Such criminal charges can have the long-term effect of ruining one’s personal reputation and even his or her career. In these cases, a professional criminal appeal lawyer is needed.

What Is Criminal Appeals Law?

Criminal appeals law is a legal specialization, requiring expert knowledge and understanding of applicable criminal appeals proceedings in and out of the courtroom.

Criminal appeals law encompasses local, state, and Federal laws governing the acts and actions that are deemed “illegal” under those laws, and are punishable by imprisonment or financial penalties.

While many lawyers can handle both civil trials and criminal trials, law firms such as Lewarchik Law LLC that specialize in criminal appeals defense are ideally suited to helping clients preserve their rights and receive fair representation.

Defending these cases requires extensive training and experience on the part of the criminal appeal lawyer in order to be most effective.

You may be charged as a criminal when suspected of committing a variety of crimes against others and/or property.  Criminal charges may also be brought in cases where someone committed serious errors in judgement, such as operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

Individuals may be charged as criminals for knowingly or unknowingly causing harm, injury, or distress to others.

Criminal offenses include:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Burglary
  • Arson
  • Drug trafficking and distribution
  • Assault
  • Shoplifting

Penalties for committing these crimes can range from long jail terms, loss of rights, financial penalties, and revocation of privileges, among many other consequences.
