Criminal Appeals: Ensuring You Received a Fair Trial

A conviction at the trial court level is not necessarily the final decision. If you have been convicted, you have the right to appeal the decision on the grounds that an error at trial resulted in a prejudicial result against you.

At the The Law Office of Massey McClusky McClusky & Fuchs, our lawyers have extensive experience appealing decisions to the state appellate court. Whether we handled your original criminal defense case or someone else represented you at the trial court level, we will vigorously pursue all appeal paths for you.

Thorough Preparation Is Key

When you retain our services, a team of appellate lawyers will research your case and go over the details of your original trial, extract and brief relevant issues and argue on your behalf. We will set out all the issues we plan to raise in a motion for new trial. If the judge overrules the motion, we will then file a notice of appeal.

Our goal is to prove that you did not receive a fair trial, resulting in an unfair outcome. We will evaluate your case to determine the cause of the error, which might relate to constitutional issues, evidentiary rulings or an illegal sentence. Our appellate attorneys actively practice in the Court of Criminal Appeals and the Tennessee Supreme Court. Since 2008 we've had a first degree murder conviction reversed and remanded, resulting in a significantly lower sentenced imposed.
