Criminal Appeals in Middle Tennesse
Appealing your case requires experienced criminal defense attorneys
Every person who has been convicted by a Tennessee criminal court has a right to appeal his or her case. If you have received an unfavorable outcome in the jury room or at sentencing, then you need an appellate attorney at Lowery, Lowery & Cherry at your side. Our attorneys and team of legal professionals in Lebanon, TN have successfully appealed cases in both state and federal court.
An appeal is essentially a challenge to a trial court’s decision. It is not a re-trial. Rather, appellate courts focus on any legal errors that may have occurred during the trial. As such, there is no jury, and there are generally no witnesses in an appeals case. A panel of judges determines whether the trial court’s errors justify a modified ruling, a retrial, resentencing or a dismissal of the charges altogether.
