Criminal Appeals Over 30 Years of Experience Protecting Your Future

Criminal Appeals Attorney Cincinnati, OH

Do You Believe Your Case Was Mishandled in Hamilton County?

Under both Ohio state and federal laws, criminal convictions and sentences can be appealed. This is known as appellate law, and it involves requesting a formal review or your conviction/sentence from a higher court. Criminal appeals are generally reserved for cases that were mishandled or when an unjust verdict was handed down.

At L. Patrick Mulligan & Associates, LLC, our Cincinnati criminal appeal attorneys represent clients seeking reversals and remands. It is important that you contact us as quickly as possible, as you only have 30 days of the sentence filing to file for an appeal.

Contact us online or call (937) 685-7006 right away for a free and confidential consultation with our Cincinnati criminal appeal lawyers.

The Appeals Process in Cincinnati, OH

Those wishing to file a criminal appeal in Cincinnati—or anywhere in the state of Ohio—need to file a certain specific procedure.

While the specific circumstances surrounding your criminal case will have some effect on the process, in most case, the process is as follows:

  1. Your attorney will file a brief on your behalf
  2. The prosecutor will respond by filing their own brief
  3. A panel of three judges will hear both briefs
  4. This panel will also listen to oral arguments presented by both sides
  5. The panel will vote, with the decision ultimately residing on the majority vote

It is important to note that just because you/your attorney has filed for an appeal, you will not necessarily receive an automatic stay on your conviction/execution of judgment. You may need to apply for an appellate bond if you wish to avoid jail/prison time while waiting for a decision on your appeal.

Additionally, if you pled guilty, you may be able to withdraw your guilty plea (if you have not yet been convicted). You may also appeal your sentence if you pled guilty and have already been sentenced.

    "Patrick and his team are the only choice!"
    My husband was forced to defend himself at our home but that put him in jail. I first went with another lawyer, Mike Mills, who took my money and that was it. Feeling hopeless, I contacted Patrick’s team and they didn’t disappoint. Within 3 hours, Patrick was at jail speaking with my husband and a few days later, Patrick had him home. When you call the office, everyone helps you. You are not just another case to them; I know and experienced it. They are a team you want to be on your family’s side! Thank you Patrick and Laura and team - you are the best, thank you!

    "When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging."
    My family and I have used Patrick for different cases. A child custody as well as DUI. Initially you may feel scared and want to keep calling but in the end he has always proven that he is the best of the best. When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging. He knows what he's doing. Child custody WON! DUI best possible outcome! I wouldn't hire anyone but him. I highly recommend! Thanks Mr. Mulligan and staff!

    "Best Lawyer ever."
    Patrick Mulligan took on my case in May 1996 not knowing how things would go. My case being his first Big case. He saved my life. I have still to this day will always remember and be Thankful to him for trusting and believing in me. I was a mother of a daughter 19 months old who as killed by my boyfriend at the time. The state tried to prove me for child endangering and wanting me to serve 18 months in prison. Parick didnt know until that point what he had gotten into . Patrick did everything he could to prove I was a good mother. It was almost a year after my daughters life was taken. We went to trail and I stood on the stand with all my friends and Dr.'s. Patrick worked so hard for me and we won and here I am 15 years later . I found his web site and had to tell my story. Anyone who needs his help he will work as hard as he can for anyone he believs in. I'm so gald to see he is still in Cinti helping people. Thank you Patrick. I will talk to you soon.

    "I would recommend him to anybody."

    "Help in the Middle of the Night"
    Mr. Mulligan made all the difference in my case. Through his yellow page ad, I was able to reach him in the middle of the night, after my ex-wife had me falsely arrested for Domestic Violence Verbal. He was prompt in coming to my assistance. He went out of his way to help reach my family so that they could get me released from holding. He answered all my questions and walked me through the entire process. He was able to get the results I was hoping for at the pre-trial, so that we did not actually have to go through an actual trial. Mr. Mulligan exceeded all my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar unfortunate situation. He was a Godsend for me.
