An appeal is a formal request to a court for a judgment or a decision to be changed.

Why appeal?

You may want to appeal against a conviction or sentence because you believe that it was unfair, harsh or unsafe.

How can we help?

Our skilled solicitors aim to give you the best outcome with your appeal. We will assist you every step of the way, from the application for an appeal to the court hearing.

You may wish to appeal against a Magistrates Court Verdict or Crown Court Verdict. It is highly recommended getting legal advice for an appeal, because usually new evidence is required or high skills in proving the verdict was unjustified. 

Winning an Appeal: A “Successful appeal against a conviction” means the conviction and sentence will NO longer apply. If you win your appeal against your sentence it will be reduced
