Fighting Back After A Conviction In Federal Court
After a conviction, you might think your case is over, and in many cases, this is true. However, when there is reversible error in the trial that led to the conviction, there is a chance for an appeal. If successfully handled, the appeal could reverse the conviction and eliminate the criminal conviction completely, along with the penalties that a conviction brings. The appeals process is no simple matter. You need an experienced lawyer to help you through the complex appellate process, especially in federal court.
With my law firm, The Law Office Of Scott M. Davidson, you will find the help you need. I have more than 20 years of experience representing clients successfully in all types of criminal appeals. In addition to the state appellate courts throughout New Mexico, I have a wealth of experience representing clients in federal appeals.
Handling Your Appeal
I have experience handling appeals in federal convictions involving:
- Appealing a RICO fraud conviction: RICO laws regulate organized crime and racketeering. These are complex cases to try and to appeal.
- Appealing a federal drug crime conviction: If you have been convicted of trafficking or any type of drug crime that involves federal jurisdiction, I can take your case up on appeal and fight to change the outcome.
- Appealing a tax evasion conviction: Like RICO cases, tax evasion cases can be extremely complicated, especially in the appellate process. I have experience handling these cases.
- Appealing a Title 3 wiretap: If wiretapping or other forms of surveillance were used as part of the case against you at the criminal trial, there is a chance some errors were made by the trial court – errors that could get us an appeal to overturn your conviction.
Although trial law and appellate law require different skills and experience, there is one thing in common between the two: Success requires a tough, dedicated approach. When I take a case on appeal, I do everything in my power to get results for my client.
