Seasoned Criminal Appeal Attorney Adept at Appealing Criminal Convictions in Reno, NV
Nearly every conviction is possible to appeal
Just because the jury reaches a verdict does not have to mean it is final. At the Law Office of David R. Houston, we commit to helping you reduce or dismiss charges directed against you at the initial trial and, if necessary, on appeal. Often, courts commit procedural error, jury follows improper instructions or evidence is improperly allowed in trial. Recognized by our peers for our professionalism and practical skills in Nevada courts, we are dedicated to aggressively litigating your criminal law issues, from just after arrest to the final appeal necessary to obtain a favorable judgment.
Handling appeals defended by another attorney
If you are unhappy with a judgment you received or are not satisfied with your attorney, our criminal appeals lawyer is experienced with taking over criminal cases after judgment and appealing the conviction. In an appeal, the trial record is reviewed and analyzed to assess what issues can be argued. An appeal can be filed when the trial involved has:
- Judicial error
- Jury error
- Attorney error
A different skill set and a great deal of experience is crucial to recognize appealable issues with a worthwhile chance of success. With more than 30 years of such experience, David Houston has an insightful advantage in identifying trial errors that may be appealed.
