Need Help Filing an Appeal in Texas?

If you have been convicted of a crime in a Texas criminal court, legal options may be available to you for post-conviction relief, such as filing an appeal.

That is why it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney who understands the complexities and nuances of the appellate process.

Members of our team are Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, which distinguishes them as legal experts with the highest levels of knowledge and training attainable.

How the Appeals Process Works in Texas

Appealing a criminal conviction consists of asking a higher court to review the lower court’s decision by inspecting various aspects of the case for mistakes. An appeal is not a new trial and no new evidence may be submitted to the higher court. The higher court’s duty is to review the record of the lower court’s proceedings. It will also review the written briefs submitted by your appeals attorney as well as those submitted by the state’s attorney.

Your appeals attorney’s brief will present arguments about the legal errors that led to the faulty findings or sentencing. The state’s attorney will present arguments as to why the findings should be upheld. Both sides also have the chance to present oral arguments to the court.

If the higher court finds mistakes that affected the outcome of the case, such as the jury’s findings or the court’s sentencing, it may:

  • Dismiss the case
  • Remand it back to the lower court for a new trial
  • Remand it back to the lower court for reduced sentencing
