Lexington Appeal Lawyers

Experienced Representation For The Appeal Process in the Greater Lexington Area & Eastern Kentucky

It is bad enough if you have been unjustly accused of a crime you never committed. However, it is an even worse scenario if, on top of all the stress you are already facing, you get an unfair trial on account of incompetence, error of the court, or even negligence on the part of your legal representative. You deserve dedicated representation, and it is unjust if you are facing a conviction due not to any actual evidence but to faulty proceedings during the court process instead.

If this painful experience is happening to you, you need to seek the support of appeal lawyers in Lexington immediately. At Landon Law, our experienced legal team is completely committed to getting you the powerful representation you need. Many firms do not handle appeals because they involve complex procedures which can vary between courts. However, our criminal defense team is fearless when it comes to effectively defending your best interests. When your case has been handled inappropriately by the judge, the jury, or even a different law firm, we can support you based on our deep experience in using appellate litigation to overturn convictions.

Call us today at (859) 237-7892 or fill out our online contact form today to overcome injustice through the appellate process with our appeal attorney in Lexington.

What is the Appeals Process in Kentucky?

The process of appealing to overturn a conviction of a crime can be challenging to navigate if you do not have a supportive legal advocate at your side. The moment that you are wrongfully convicted, a countdown begins, full of crucial deadlines pertaining to when different forms and arguments can be made. What makes the appellate process more complex is that multiple strategies of appeal can be used, depending on the original case and its initial level in the process.

Direct Appeal vs. Post-Conviction Action

Trying to figure out whether an appeal needs to be made as a direct appeal or a post-conviction action depends on exactly when the problem of your case was raised. According to Section 115 of the Constitution of Kentucky, you have the right to appeal to at least one other court regardless of your conviction. Once the Notice of Appeal has been received and successfully filed, you can then proceed to the correct appellate court.

How Do I File an Appeal in Kentucky?

Navigating the legal system can be complex, and if you find yourself facing an unfavorable court decision, the appeals process becomes a crucial avenue for seeking justice. Filing an appeal begins with a comprehensive review of your case. We can meticulously examine trial transcripts, evidence, and court records to identify potential legal errors or injustices. Once we establish the grounds for an appeal, we initiate the process by filing a Notice of Appeal with the appropriate appellate court.

Kentucky follows a structured procedure for filing appeals, and adhering to these guidelines is paramount. Our team at Landon Law is well-versed in these procedures, ensuring that your appeal is filed correctly and within the designated timeframe. We work diligently to compile a persuasive appellate brief highlighting the legal errors or issues that warrant a review by the higher court.

How Long Do I Have to File an Appeal in Kentucky?

In Kentucky, the timeline for filing an appeal is critical to the legal process. In general, the deadline to file an appeal in Kentucky is 30 days from the entry of the final judgment or order by the trial court. It's important to note that this deadline is strict, and failing to file within the prescribed timeframe may result in waiving your right to appeal. Seeking the assistance of our experienced legal professionals at Landon Law can be instrumental in ensuring that your appeal is filed within the statutory timeframe. Remember that each case is unique, and specific details may impact the filing deadline.

    "I am very appreciative and grateful for what they have done for me."
    Couldn’t be more pleased with Landon Law. I specifically worked with John Landon for two individual cases. Both got resolved without a hassle. John was attentive and very personable. Took time out of his personal life to speak with me multiple times via phone call or email. I can strongly say that by the end of your time with him, you’ll consider him a friend as well as an attorney. Never worked with a more personable and respectful firm. I am very appreciative and grateful for what they have done for me. Will highly recommend them to any of my friends in the future in need of legal help. Thank you John, and thank you Landon Law!

    "I definitely recommend them if you want a powerhouse fighting for you."
    They are the best..their fees are pretty fair and reasonable. Cheaper than any other lawyer I called. I worked with Charles Landon. Every time I had a question, concern or feeling hopeless, my text or phone call was always returned quickly. The outcome of my case was way more than I expected in my favor. He made sure that I never felt alone, that we were in it together. The confidence he had of himself reassured me that I was in good hands. He wasn’t judgemental or arrogant like most other lawyers. Just down to earth, he doesn’t stop fighting for your best interest. I definitely recommend them if you want a powerhouse fighting for you.

    "Landon Law IS the best choice!"
    Soooo lemme just start with how I got charged with wanton endangerment class A felony and Charles Landon got the E N T I R E thing DISMISSED!! Do y’all hear me!!?? DISMISSED!! He is without a doubt the best attorney I have ever had in my life and I’ve had a few sadly /: But with Charles I would highly highly hiiiiiiighly recommend his services. Not only did he get the absolute best outcome for me, it was very impressive how obviously intelligent, professional, and intuitive he was yet super chill and down to earth at the same time. Also, he always kept in touched by updating me with the progress of my cases and never skipped a beat when answering my calls/texts. Sometimes I would even call him when I was super anxious because I was overthinking and nervous and he would gently lay out the facts & our game plan for me again and remind me not to stress to much which helped soOooOo much. He took my feelings into consideration and truly made me feel important and heard. I could literally go on and on about how amazing of an attorney he is. But to make it simple, Landon Law IS the best choice!!
    Forever grateful for him :))

    "Landon Law is one of the few defense attorneys I have seen that truly fight for you."
    I had Charles Landon with a case that had been going on 2 years. He answered every phone call, question and always made sure I was informed and had the best defense possible. When my case started I was facing 20 years my case ended with me getting 5 years probation. Beyond grateful for him. Landon Law is one of the few defense attorneys I have seen that truly fight for you as much as they are able to.
