Criminal defense appeals can be complicated, as appellate courts’ rules and procedures are different from those of criminal trial courts. In handling your defense appeal, we will carefully review the trial transcript to identify errors made at the time of the trial.
Our criminal defense appeals lawyers in Montgomery County, PA, will serve you as a team, which has an essential benefit in a criminal defense appeal.

How Does the Appeals Process Work in Pennsylvania?
If you are found guilty of a crime in Montgomery County, you can appeal that verdict. That means you can request a higher court to examine the lower court or the jury’s ruling to convict you. The higher court can also assess whether the punishment imposed was appropriate.
To appeal a criminal conviction, you must file a Notice of Appeals with the Superior Court of Pennsylvania within 30 days of being sentenced. In some cases, you must first file a post-sentencing motion with the trial court, which you must carry out within ten days of sentencing. Should the trial court deny the motion, you have 30 days to file a Notice of Appeal.
What Are Common Grounds for an Appeal?
Although criminal appeal issues can be complicated, experienced Montgomery County appeals attorneys from Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg & Gifford working on your behalf will recognize all of the grounds that substantiate an appeal.
Examples of errors that may be grounds for an appeal include:
- Ineffective counsel by your attorney, either at trial or during plea bargaining
- The judge unjustly barred evidence that would have helped your case
- The judge allowed evidence that was damaging to your case and violated your rights
- The judge allowed the prosecution to argue against standards of Criminal Procedure
- The judge did not examine crucial information in the case
- The imposed sentence was excessive or inappropriate for your conviction
- Law enforcement or prosecutorial misconduct
- The judge overlooked constitutional violations
- Evidence of jury tampering
- The prosecution’s witness committed perjury
Your Montgomery County appeals lawyer may investigate these and other potential legal grounds for an appeal of your conviction or imposed penalty.
