South Carolina Federal Appeals Lawyers
South Carolina is governed by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals
Our South Carolina federal appeals lawyers understand the devastating results of a federal conviction or an unexpected sentence. In many cases, there are errors at trial or in the pretrial hearings that can be raised on appeal to reverse your conviction. In other cases, there may have been an improper application of the federal sentencing guidelines that resulted in an unjust sentence.
The federal sentencing guidelines are very complex and the federal courts frequently make mistakes that can dramatically increase a defendant’s sentence. Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of the federal sentencing guidelines and will look for errors at pretrial, trial, and sentencing phase of your case that can form the basis for an appeal. We have helped many clients dramatically reduce their sentence and saved them years in prison.
Experienced Federal Appellate Lawyers in all Federal Circuits
Our experienced federal appellate lawyers can also evaluate your case for ineffective assistance of counsel. Unfortunately, many lawyers take federal criminal cases even though they lack the necessary qualifications and experience. If your attorney was ineffective, you may be entitled to a new trial, a new sentencing hearing, or to withdraw your guilty plea through a 2255.
The time limits for filing an appeal or a section 2255 habeas petition are short and strictly enforced. Don’t delay – call 404-633-3797 or contact us online to schedule a consultation with an experienced federal appellate attorney today.
