As with any legal challenge, the foundation is in understanding the process. An appeal is not a new trial but a request for a higher court to review the decision of your DUI case. Our attorneys scrutinize every detail, searching for errors that may have influenced the outcome of the original trial. With James Drummond Law Firm PLLC by your side, you're not alone in the fight for your rights. And remember, we're just a call away. You can reach out for questions or to book an appointment at (405) 818-3851.

At the heart of an appeal is the belief that an error occurred during the initial court proceedings. It's important to grasp what this process entails:

  • Thorough Review: Our expert attorneys meticulously go over the transcripts and records from your DUI trial.
  • Grounds for Appeal: Identifying potential mistakes such as legal errors, incorrect jury instructions, or issues with evidence.
  • Filing the Appeal: A formal notice is filed with the appellate court, beginning the legal process.

Keep in mind that this process is time-sensitive, which means delaying action can cost you the opportunity to appeal. Promptness is key, and we're here to ensure your case is filed without delay.

An appeal is not about rehashing the past; it's about presenting a compelling reason for a higher court to inspect the first trial. Specialized DUI attorneys, like the ones at James Drummond Law Firm PLLC, play a critical role:

  • Expert Analysis: With a keen eye for detail, our legal experts identify potential appellate issues.
  • Strategic Argumentation: Crafting cogent arguments that challenge the trial's legal bases effectively.
  • Oral Advocacy: Commanding the courtroom with clear, persuasive language to convey your arguments before appellate judges.

Having an attorney who understands the intricacies of DUI law is paramount. They possess the unique skill set required to elevating your chance at a successful appeal.

Facing an appeal can spawn a multitude of questions and worries. We've gathered the most frequent inquiries:

  • How long do I have to file an appeal? This varies by state, but generally, there is a tight window post-conviction to initiate an appeal.
  • Can new evidence be introduced? The appeal is based on the trial's existing record; new evidence typically cannot be introduced.
  • How long does the appeal process take? It varies greatly, but appeals can take several months to over a year. Timeliness in starting the process is crucial.

Each question brings you one step closer to understanding your situation and the steps ahead. We welcome any other questions you may have about the process. Just give us a ring at (405) 818-3851 for clear, concise answers.
