Successful Federal Criminal Appeals: We Are The Federal Criminal Appeals Law Firm

Detail is vital when arguing a Federal Criminal Appeal in the Second Circuit. Federal Criminal Appeals are far from easy and are often complex. The Federal Circuit Court of Appeals has its own rules,  which must be followed.  We know the rules and your case will be handled professionally, persuasively, and with great attention to detail.

We Identify Appealable Issues in Federal Criminal Appeals

We identify the right legal issues in every Federal Appeal, and we persuasively craft and present appealable issues stemming from pre-trial motions and hearings, the trial, and the sentencing hearing. Appealable issues take many forms such as constitutional issues, procedural issues and evidentiary issues. They may also include the following:

  • Home searches, business searches, and curtilage searches (4th Amendment);
  • Search and Seizure Statutes (4th Amendment);
  • Arrest Warrants (4th Amendment);
  • Due Process Rights (5th Amendment);
  • U.S. Sentencing Guidelines;
  • Evidentiary Rules (Federal Rules of Evidence);
  • Dog sniff searches (4th Amendment);
  • Miranda Rights (5th Amendment);
  • Right to Effective Assistance of Counsel (6th Amendment); and
  • Excessive Sentencing and Cruel and Unusual Punishment (8th Amendment).

Federal Criminal Appeals and the Waiver of Appeal

Even if you have already signed a waiver of the right to appeal as part of your plea agreement, you may still be able to file a Federal Criminal Appeal depending on the terms of the waiver agreement and the sentence.

Typically, a waiver of appeals is part of the settlement agreement between the defendant and the prosecution. If you have pleaded guilty to a crime and have signed a waiver of appeal, you may still be able to appeal your case. We will examine any waivers to determine whether or not the judge has acted outside the parameters of the agreement and what your chances are on appeal.
