Criminal Appeals Attorneys and Post-Conviction Lawyers

Our Raleigh Criminal Appeals Attorneys Pursue Justice

A conviction is not necessarily the end of your case. You may have grounds for an appeal. Cheshire Parker Schneider has helped defendants access this important form of relief since 1978. Our appellate and post-conviction lawyers dedicate their lives to seeking justice and relief after a judgment has been entered.

Our lawyers have decades of experience fighting for a second chance for the convicted. In addition to knowledge of the complex rules of post-conviction litigation, we have the passion and creativity necessary to develop compelling arguments to judges in state and federal courts. We have a history of success filing and arguing direct appeals in state and federal appellate courts, conducting post-conviction investigations and litigating motions for appropriate relief in state trial courts.

Our dedicated team regularly represents high profile clients and handles challenging questions of law and fact. Because our attorneys have defended clients in capital murder, white collar, conspiracy and other serious criminal offenses, we understand the complex issues involved in these cases when they reach appeal.

Re-Examining Your Conviction from Every Angle

The approach we take on appeal depends on the facts of your case. To determine whether you have grounds for an appeal, we thoroughly review your pre-trial and trial record and, when appropriate, the investigation leading up to your charges and conviction. After identifying appealable issues, we form compelling arguments to present to the higher courts. We may seek modification of your sentence, a new trial, writ of habeas corpus, immediate release from incarceration, right to DNA testing or other proper and just legal remedies.

Our Dedicated Lawyers Never Give Up

Our appellate team never gives up on our clients. Our Raleigh criminal appeals attorneys are known throughout North Carolina for their tenacity and perseverance in the face of extraordinary odds.

For example, in 2010, our attorneys secured the release of Gregory F. Taylor, an innocent man who spent 16 years in prison for a murder he did not commit. We also won a declaration of innocence to relieve Mr. Taylor from the unfair burden that a criminal conviction places on the innocent years after release.

Like many of our clients, Mr. Taylor seemed without hope to many, but our attorneys recognized the horrific injustice and we vehemently fought to rectify it. Convictions are often the end of the criminal process, but, when the facts and law allow, our appellate and post-conviction lawyers work hard to give your case renewed life in our quest for just resolutions.
