Criminal Appeals

Appealing a criminal conviction requires unique skill not possessed by every criminal defense attorney. The success of an appellate case hinges on the ability of your attorney to understand not only the law, but also the trial record. Attorney Howard Snader of the Phoenix, Arizona, Law Offices of Howard A. Snader, LLC has almost twenty years of legal experience. He represents people living throughout the cities of Mesa, Gilbert, Tempe, Scottsdale, Glendale, Peoria, Chandler, Casa Grande, Kingman, Prescott, Cottonwood, Flagstaff, Kingman, Avondale, Litchfield Park, Surprise, Yuma, Apache Junction, and Goodyear.

As a Criminal Law Specialist Certified by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization, Mr. Snader understands the importance of developing a thorough record during trial to preserve issues for appeal. When trying your case it is important to record and enter into evidence all appealable issues. Trying the cases we eventually appeal gives us an understanding of the issues as they come up. We will file motions for post conviction relief (PCR Rule 32), appeals for plea bargains, and wrongful convictions.

Protect your right to appeal your case by contacting the Law Offices of Howard A. Snader, LLC. You must file appeals in a timely manner. We will tie the facts of your case to the applicable law and convincingly argue the issues before the appellate court.

Understand that when you win an appeal, your case is not dismissed. A favorable appellate decision forces the lower to court to review your sentence or hold a new trial. We must prove to the court the necessity to invade the decision of the jury because of some error of law.

Appellate Case Fees

Given the potential costs of appellate legal work, we offer bifurcated fees to handle your case. When reviewing the record of your case, we will charge an hourly fee. If your case is appealable, we will charge a flat retainer fee for the rest of your appellate case.
