Appealing A Criminal Conviction In Louisiana State Courts

Last updated on June 2, 2020

Individuals who face criminal charges may believe that a conviction signals an end to their legal options. This isn’t always the case. Specifically an appeal is sometimes appropriate and successful in helping an individual avoid paying hefty fines, having a criminal record, and serving a lengthy prison sentence or probation.

At Carl Henry Franklin, Attorney at Law, we help individuals who have been wrongfully convicted stand up for and assert their rights through the criminal appeals process. With 35 years of experience, we know how to achieve successful outcomes in the most complex state criminal cases — skills we draw upon as we prepare your case for appeal.

Helping Clients Obtain Justice

You only have thirty days after the rendition of the judgment or ruling for the appeal to be taken. Which means you only have 30 days to appeal your sentence. So you must act fast. If you believe that your conviction resulted from one or more legal errors made by the prosecution or judge before or during your trial, it is very important to contact an attorney at our firm as soon as possible.

At Carl Henry Franklin, Attorney at Law, we have vast experience with the criminal appeals process. When you hire our law office for help with your criminal appeal, we will conduct a thorough investigation into the factors that led to your conviction and prepare compelling briefs as to why the conviction should be overturned.
