Alabama is home to over 4.5 million people and is located in the southeastern part of the United States. It gained its statehood in 1819, when it became the 22nd member of the Union. While much of the state's economics are based upon agricultural product, Alabama is home to major corporations like Boeing, Northrup-Grumman, Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, and Toyota. In fact, Alabama manufactures more automobiles than all but three other states in the nation. The state's natural beauty is known throughout the country, and Alabama is crisscrossed by recreational waterways and lakes throughout. Birmingham is the state's largest city and has become a nationally renowned medical center, though Alabama is perhaps best known for being home to the past two national champions in college football - Alabama won the BCS national championship in 2010 and Auburn took the title in 2011.
While the criminal justice system seeks perfection, those who are a part of the system know that the courts are unable to meet such an exacting standard. Mistakes are made in many instances, which is why both federal and state courts give those who are convicted the ability to appeal their rulings. Whether the judge made an incorrect evidentiary ruling, a jury was given incorrect instructions, or the court simply got its decision wrong, the convicted party has a chance to rectify these mistakes through the appeals process. Because you are appealing a conviction, the stakes of an appeal are even higher than in the underlying case - which is why hiring an experienced Alabama criminal appeals attorney is so important.
The legal system is intimidating enough, but the appeals process can be even more complex and arduous than a regular criminal case. Having your criminal case reviewed by a skilled appellate lawyer can uncover multiple grounds for appeal and increase the chances of maintaining your freedom. Whether you are facing a conviction in state or federal court, you should always have an appellate attorney review the facts to determine if mistakes were made in the lower court's decision. Your rights and freedom hang in the balance, and the services of a dedicated and aggressive attorney may be the key to keeping you out of jail or significantly reducing your sentence.
