Appeals and Post-Conviction Relief
An appeal is more than a challenge to a former court’s ruling—it’s your second chance at freedom. With this in mind, and with your freedom hanging in the balance, it’s essential to take advantage of every legal option available. Attorney David Joffe understands the unique character of criminal appeals, and has tried more than 200 appeals cases over the course of his career. Direct appeal is not a convicted defendant’s only option, though.
Appeals are only one of the post-conviction services that Joffe Law offers to clients, but often are a defendant’s best chance at getting a new trial. Nearly always, appealing a conviction is the right decision to make when pursuing your freedom. Attorney David Joffe is available to meet with potential clients and provide official case reviews, and, when necessary, also can conduct in-custody consultations. If you have been convicted in a Florida or Federal court, and believe one of the items below pertains to your case, call attorney David Joffe at 954-723-0007 to learn more about how appeals could be effective in your case.
