Federal & State Appeals Attorneys in Orlando
After Your Case, Trust the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A.
When an individual is convicted of a crime, he or she has the right to appeal not just the conviction but also the sentence. People who are unfamiliar with the criminal justice system or the legal system in general often mistakenly think that an appeal is a new trial. However, an appeal is actually a review of the trial and sentencing.
If you believe that errors were made at your trial, or at a loved one's trial, talk to the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., about appealing the decision. Our Orlando attorneys have handled many federal and state appeals. We feel equally comfortable and confident representing our existing clients or stepping in to represent new clients who have had a different attorney's representation at trial.

Ensuring that You Adhere to Federal & State Appellate Guidelines
As lawyers who handle both federal and state appeals, our Orlando criminal defense lawyers possess the knowledge about the statutes, processes, and rules that apply to each type.
One of the most important guidelines to note is that everyone has a right to appeal, but the right is forfeited if the Notice of Appeal is not filed on time:
- Notice of Appeals in state courts of Florida must be filed within 30 days from the judgment.
- Notice of Appeals in federal courts of Florida must be filed within 14 days from the judgment.
In addition to timelines and procedures, your appellate attorney must have full command of the following:
- Thorough review and analysis of the record in the trial court and of the applicable laws
- Identification of the key factors to argue in the appellate court
- Advanced writing skills that result in clear, concise, compelling and persuasive briefs
- Effective oral argument abilities
We Strive to Give Our Clients a Second Chance through Successful Appellate Work
When an Orlando appellate attorney can establish that a trial judge made an error in the original trial and that the error resulted in an illegal or unconstitutional conviction or sentencing, one of the three outcomes can result:
- The defendant receives a new trial
- The case is dismissed
- The defendant receives a reduced sentence
