The Alabama federal criminal appeals attorneys at Shein & Brandenburg can help if you have been convicted of a federal criminal offense. A conviction in federal court is not the end of the case. You have the right to appeal your conviction as well as the sentence imposed and to raise any errors made in the trial, pretrial proceedings, and sentencing hearing.
If the appeal is successful, your conviction or sentence may be reversed and you may be entitled to new trial or a new sentencing hearing. Even if you entered a guilty plea, you may be able to appeal the sentence imposed or, in certain circumstances, to withdraw your guilty plea and go to trial.
