Evaluating Factors to Appeal Trial Verdicts

Our Atlanta cimrinal appeals attorneys start every appeal by diligently going through the trial transcripts. We look for procedural issues that were not followed or executed incorrectly, ultimately affecting the outcome of your trial, such as:

  • Introduction of evidence that should have been excluded
  • Exclusion of evidence that should have been admitted
  • Errors in jury selection or jury instructions
  • Failure to use DNA evidence or other exculpatory evidence
  • Discovery of new evidence
  • A conflict of interest

We then put together appellate briefs, legal documents designed to bring these issues to the attention of the court. When it is time, we present a strong and effective legal argument to the state or federal appellate court, or, if appropriate, the trial court.

State Court Appeals

When a state court trial goes wrong and errors lead to a conviction, we are prepared to protect individuals' constitutional rights. Our legal team will request a review of the state court's decision. We will fight for your conviction to be overturned through showing your case was mishandled.

Federal Appeals

Federal law is complex and the stakes are high. As former prosecutors, we have a highly developed ability to pinpoint procedural errors at trial that could have resulted in guilty verdicts. We use this ability to your benefit. Our in-depth examination of your federal trial transcripts helps us shape effective strategy to file a motion for new trial or a notice of appeal.

    “Nick defended me with dedication, caring, and skillfulness - I will be eternally grateful”
    Thank You Nick, For Justice! The state of Georgia indicted me on two counts of Racketeering that I did not commit. Nick defended me with dedication, caring, and skillfulness in interacting with all parties involved. Against almost insurmountable odds, he was able to get my case dismissed. I will be eternally grateful for all he has done for me. I consider him a superb criminal defense attorney and also call him my friend!

Highly, highly recommended!

    “very impressed”
    Good and Knowledgeable I was in a bad situation at one point in my life, the Federal Government brought criminal action against me and I knew i had to be accountable for my action. I was looking for a good lawyer who specialized in criminal lawyer, one who has professional experience in a court room and could give me a good advice on what I needed to do. I interviewed three lawyers and someone told me about Nicholas Lotito, so I meet with him and we talked for hours, I was very impressed with his honesty, I was convinced and had no doubts or uncertainty that he was the person I needed to represent me. At the end of the trial everything worked out good. So thank you Mr. Lotito for the good work you did.
