Criminal Appeals

Criminal Appeals are Possible After a Conviction

If you have been wrongfully convicted of a crime or you feel justice was not served in your criminal conviction, you may feel like there is no hope. Unfair sentencing happens, and the justice system makes mistakes. If you were unfairly convicted or sentenced, or the facts were overlooked, you can appeal your case.

You want a skilled, compassionate and competent criminal appeals attorney. Susan Clouthier, the principal attorney at Clouthier Law, PLLC, defends clients against unfair convictions.

I Have Been Convicted of a Crime. Can I Appeal my Case?

Every case is different, and the appeals process can be overwhelming. If you or a family member has already been convicted, this can be a scary time. The first thing you should do is hire an attorney who knows how to craft an effective appeal at all levels, including state and federal convictions.

There are options after a conviction and our firm can help you appeal or otherwise seek criminal appeals relief. We will work with you, through every step of the legal process. Our team will explain everything that happens, and we will look at the facts that were presented in court and the evidence. We will make sure you were treated fairly in your trial.

Client Reviews
“Susan has worked tirelessly for years filing appeals on my behalf. Finally her efforts and persistence has paid off. After serving 11 and 1/2 years, I was released from Federal Prison and have been able to return to my family and help once again with raising my children [now age 16]. My family and I owe a debt of gratitude which we will never be able to repay. The love we feel for Susan is immeasurable.” Joe R.
“Our case was complicated and time critical. Susan took charge of the entire process, keeping us updated with texts, phone calls and emails. She worked through a Holiday weekend to make certain our case got the attention and success required to bring our loved one home. It is also very important to know that she has sophisticated research tools, which are IMPERATIVE when you have to navigate through the Appeals process.” Jack H.
“Susan is a thoroughly dedicated professional that has a unique empathy for cases that reveal the misapplication of justice that so often affects those with limited resources. Through her tireless efforts, one of my best friends had six years reduced from his sentence. The family and I will be forever grateful to Susan.” James P.
