Charlotte Criminal Lawyer Brad Smith answers the question:”A past conviction is keeping me from finding work. What can I do?”
If you were convicted of a crime, you may think that your case is over. In reality, there could be some reasons that you might be able to appeal the conviction. The law allows an appeal under some circumstances. It is almost always in your best interest to discuss your case with an attorney to determine whether an appeal may be an appropriate option. If you win an appeal, you may be able to obtain a new trial or may be able to get a different sentence. An experienced criminal defense attorney will help evaluate your case and determine whether an appeal is possible.
