Appeals Proceedings for all Areas of Criminal Law
Criminal proceedings often end with a judgment which is deemed to be unjust by the convicted person and against which he/she wishes to take further legal action. It is then to be examined whether this judgment has been made on the basis of legal errors which can be attacked with the legal means of an appeal. An appeal cannot be made on the basis of new facts but instead only on the basis of the violation of procedural or substantive law. The examination of the judgment with regard to legal errors relevant for the appeal and the explanation of these errors in the appeals pleading are legally challenging and require a high degree of analytical thinking and skill. Defense with regard to an appeal always prerequisites hereby a preliminary examination of the chances of success of the appeal which can also bring about the unpleasant result that a judgment, although wrong, is not capable of being attacked in terms of law in an appeal.
