We Are Here To Serve You

A well-written post-trial motion is an important tool in overturning a wrongful conviction. A post-trial motion allows any errors that occurred to be fixed without the need for a direct criminal appeal or a post-conviction petition. Even more important, any issues or arguments not raised in a post-trial motion are forfeited for appeal. That is why it is so important to hire a criminal appellate attorney as soon as possible after a finding of guilty.

Some of the post-trial motions that are available include:

  1. Motion for a new trial;
  2. Motion to reconsider sentence;
  3. Motion to dismiss;
  4. Motion for judgment of acquittal;
  5. Motion for a trial order of dismissal; and
  6. Motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict.

Every post-trial motion is not available in each case and when available post-trial motions must generally be filed together in one post-trial motion. A well written and well researched post-trial motion is an important step to attacking and overturning a wrongful conviction. A poorly written post-trial motion can cripple your appeal and could even result in you being unable to raise meritorious arguments on appeal.

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.
