Generally, if you plead guilty to a federal criminal charge, you waive your right to file an appeal. However, there are exceptions to this rule that Jeff Goldfarb, an experienced appellate lawyer, understands and has used to win appeals. Conversely, if you went to trial on a federal criminal charge and lost, in most instances, you can appeal your conviction. However, there are very strict time limits to file an appeal, sometimes just a few days. Not only has criminal defense attorney Jeff Goldfarb succeeded on multiple federal criminal appeals, but he is licensed to practice in the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and appears there regularly to argue for his clients. Jeff is regularly hired to handle an appeal for a client he did not represent at the trial level. However, Jeff is just as often contacted by other attorneys to handle an appeal for their clients as the referring lawyer does not understand how to appeal a federal criminal case. If your federal criminal case ended badly and you want to appeal, call us immediately.
The criminal appeals process for state cases is vastly different from the federal appeals process.
