What Does A Motion For New Trial involve?

By: Wallin & Klarich

Your Wallin & Klarich appeals attorney will obtain and thoroughly review a transcript of your trial to determine what legal errors were made. Such errors include the wrongful admission or exclusion of evidence, jury instructional error, or jury misconduct. Additional investigation may be necessary to uncover the evidence needed to prove such errors. Then, a written brief will be prepared which all such issues and justifications for reversal are presented and argued, supported by legal authority and the declarations of additional witnesses.

Constructing a comprehensive case of appellate issues increases the chances that a judge might grant a new trial because the motion is based on a variety of issues. Raising all pertinent issues at this stage assures that the client’s best defense is presented and that those points are preserved for federal court review should that be required at a later date.

The appeals process can be a highly complex process. Without the aid and knowledge of an experienced appeals attorney, the whole undertaking can be overwhelming. Our appellate lawyers at Wallin & Klarich have over 30 years of experience handling difficult appeals cases and will work diligently to file a timely appeal that will help you overturn your conviction.
