Criminal And Civil Appeals

It is not only difficult to successfully appeal a ruling, it is difficult to get an appellate court to even give you the chance to make your case. It is important to have the right legal representation in your corner.

At Whitestone Young, PC, of Fairfax, Virginia, a number of our attorneys are admitted to practice in federal and state appellate courts. We have an established track record of successful civil and criminal appeals, where we ensured that our clients received proper treatment by law enforcement and lower courts.

We Understand How To Build Strong Appeals

It is not enough to say that you disagree with a lower court's ruling. You have to prove that a significant error was made that affected the outcome. Our lawyers can review the original trial transcripts, look at the evidence and determine if:

  • The lower court erred in allowing or not allowing certain evidence
  • The lower court misapplied the law
  • The jury received improper instructions
  • Your case was harmed by ineffective counsel

We pride ourselves on providing straightforward advice to our clients. That means we will not hesitate to point out the problems we see with your case. An appeal takes a serious investment of time and money, and we will advise you whether we think you have a good chance of a successful outcome.
