Appeal Your Conviction With Experienced Criminal Counsel

Experienced Seattle defense attorney Arturo Menéndez will aggressively appeal your criminal conviction based on legal errors and insufficient evidence.

Judges and juries often make mistakes. Criminal convictions are routinely overturned based on procedural errors made by police, incorrect rulings on law (including the improper admission of evidence), and unreliable evidence. We will fight to overturn your conviction on appeal and win the justice you deserve.


Don’t Hesitate in Appealing Your Conviction

Anyone convicted in state or federal court has the right to appeal their conviction, but they must act within prescribed time limits to do so. You should therefore not hesitate to contact an attorney who can begin the process of finding grounds to appeal.

You do not have to work with the same lawyer who represented you at trial, and, in fact, that lawyer may have missed valuable evidence or failed to properly object to evidence that was improperly admitted against you and other issues in your conviction.
