You have been found guilty of a crime and now you have a critical decision to make. You likely only have one chance at a direct appeal after a criminal conviction. You need to make sure you file your appeal on time and that all aspects of your appeal are considered and well-researched.
You need an appellate lawyer you trust to make strong arguments to the court.
Make the Right Decision When You Hire an Appellate Attorney
You have choices about which lawyer to hire for your appeal. As you make your decision, it is important to consider:
- Experience. An experienced attorney knows how to research your case, write effective briefs and motions for the appellate court, and pursue justice effectively.
- Board Certification. Since 1982, the Florida Supreme Court has awarded board certifications so that potential clients can identify experts in different areas of the law. Board-certified lawyers are recognized for their “special knowledge, skills, and proficiency” and “professionalism and ethics in practice.” Just six percent of eligible Florida lawyers have board certification. Robert Malove is a Florida board-certified criminal trial lawyer.
- Commitment. Robert Malove became a criminal defense lawyer so that he could make a difference in the lives of his clients.
