We Are Here To Serve You

The primary mechanism to overturn a wrongful conviction is by filing a direct criminal appeal with an appellate court. A criminal appeal can also occur after winning a suppression hearing at trial resulting in the prosecution filing an interlocutory appeal. Regardless of how a criminal appeal begins, the appeals process is the same consisting of three judges who decide the case. Unlike a trial where evidence is presented and witnesses testify, during an appeal neither side is allowed to present evidence. Instead the appellate court justices rely solely upon what evidence was presented and the appellate briefs presented by the parties on appeal.

Appealing a wrong decision is not limited to a finding of guilty or issues raised at trial but it can also occur because a losing party wants to appeal a denial of a post-conviction petition. An appeal is also not limited by appealing to an appellate court because any party who loses the appeal can attempt to appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court and if the appeal involves a constitutional issue an appeal to the United States Supreme Court. However, before you can appeal to the Supreme Court, the Court needs to give you permission to appeal because there is no guarantee or right that the Supreme Court needs to hear your case.

What Client’s Say

I can’t say enough great things about Omar Jaleel. I hired Omar to help a family member, who suffers from addition, ordered to a rehab facility for 15 months instead of being sentenced to jail. It took some time but he was dedicated and made it happen. A very difficult task in an overcrowded judicial system. Thank you for everything Omar.
