We represent indigent clients who have been convicted of crimes.
Appellate Advocates provides exceptional representation to individuals who have been convicted of crimes and cannot afford private lawyers.
All individuals convicted of a criminal offense in New York State have a fundamental right to appeal their conviction to a higher court, and to a free attorney if they cannot afford one. As appellate defenders, we provide a critical safeguard against injustice by reviewing all aspects of the conviction and seeking to rectify illegal or improper actions by the police, prosecutors, the court, or others.
Our clients have been convicted of a broad range of crimes from major felonies to less serious misdemeanors. Their sentences of imprisonment range from under a year in jail to life imprisonment. Regardless of the crime involved, we represent each client to the fullest extent of our abilities and do our best to obtain a positive outcome.
