ARIZONA CRIMINAL APPEALS ATTORNEY
Even if a person is convicted of a criminal offense, there are still avenues to possibly appeal the conviction and/or sentence. Every criminal defendant in Arizona has the right to appeal their conviction. The purpose of an appeal is to ensure that no errors were made during the defendant’s trial process. These avenues include:
- A direct appeal to a higher court challenging a verdict, court ruling, or other error committed in your case;
- A Rule 32 petition for post-conviction relief that includes ineffective assistance of counsel claims;
- Habeas corpus petitions;
- Motion to set aside a conviction or sentence;
- Motion to restore your civil rights.
