Appeals

Appealing a Criminal Case in New Mexico

Dedicated Representation from an Albuquerque Criminal Defense Lawyer

Did you already go to trial for a case? Were you not pleased with the results that you were given? You may be able to appeal. Contact an Albuquerque criminal attorney at The Romero Law Firm, P.A. We can help you look at the entire trial process and may be able to help you file an appeal to a higher court. You may appeal any issue that was raised at trial and fight to overturn a bad ruling. It is important that you work with an attorney though; this process can be tricky and the laws governing appeals can be hard to navigate, so make sure to contact our team as soon as possible.

Submitting a Brief 
You and your attorney will submit a brief to the appellate court. With the brief, there will be an included copy of the court transcript and any evidence that was used during your trial.

Conviction Review 
During this process, the appellate will review the trial and look to find any errors made by the opposing side which may have swayed a juror or judge's final decision in your verdict.

Errors During Trial 
There are numerous types of errors which can be found. Fundamental errors can obstruct the interest of justice, reversible errors can overturn a smaller court's decision and harmful or harmless errors may be found throughout the evidence and trial.

Losing an Appeal 
If you lose an appeal, you may have the option to appeal again to a higher court. Some cases are taken to the State Supreme Court or to a federal Supreme Court. At these levels, it is important that you work with an attorney from The Romero Law Firm, P.A.

Winning an Appeal with the Help of Our Firm

If you win your appeal, there is a chance that a prosecutor will simply drop the charges against you or offer you an opportunity to plead guilty with a sentence of time served. Both of these options may be beneficial to you, depending on the scenario and the situation that you were tried under in the first place. An attorney from our firm can help you weigh the pros and cons of each situation and offer you sound legal advice on which is the best option to take.
