Representing Clients In The Appellate Court, Albuquerque
The United States judicial system seeks to provide swift and fair justice to all parties in criminal cases. Unfortunately, not all trials end with fair convictions. In fact, there are several verdicts in Albuquerque which may have been unfairly reached due to the presence of material errors in the trial. These errors are known as reversible errors, and when they are discovered, the case may be presented to the Court of Appeals or the Supreme Court.
Courts Of Appeals
The American judicial system relies on a system of courts to identify the facts of a case and determine what action, if any, should be taken. In the federal system, the highest court is the U.S. Supreme Court, below which are the U.S. Courts of Appeals. On appeal, the judges do not hear testimony or evidence, as in a trial court. Instead, the appeals judges seek to confirm whether or not the application of the law in the trial itself was correct.
There are no jurors in the appeals court; decisions are often made by three appellate judges. These judges will be presented with challenges to the trial decisions of the courts within their district.
