Appellate / Post Conviction

Houston, Texas, Conviction Appeals Lawyer

Federal Appellate Court Attorney

If you were convicted for a federal or state felony or misdemeanor, you have the right to appeal your conviction or sentence, based on a wide range of legal details of your case. Even if you accepted a plea agreement, there may be an opportunity for an appeal if your attorney did not fully vigorously defend you or fully advise you about your legal options. Under the U.S. Constitution and the laws of Texas, you have the right to challenge the final disposition of a judge's decision or the manner in which your trial progressed.

The Law Firm of Bires Schaffer & DeBorde offers the legal skills, experience, and resources to handle all criminal conviction appeals and post-conviction matters. A successful appeal often comes down to thoroughly investigating trial proceedings and preparing clear and concise documentation of errors and constitutionally questionable decisions by the judge.
