Appellate courts are an integral part of the judicial system, providing an important check on the legal errors that can occur at the trial court level. If you've been charged with a crime, not only should your criminal defense lawyer be prepared for a criminal trial; he or she should also be prepared for any necessary appeals and post-conviction proceedings.
At the Sebald & Hackwelder Law Firm in Erie, Pennsylvania, our experienced criminal defense lawyers work hard to prepare a safety net in case you receive an unfavorable pretrial ruling or are convicted of a crime after the trial.
If there are any trial court actions or decisions that can be appealed or challenged, our experienced criminal appeal lawyers stand prepared to do so and present our arguments to a higher court. Have you been convicted of a crime? You need experienced criminal appeal lawyers on your side.

I hired Eric for someone who was facing serious felony charges. He is a fairly young man with a young child who he absolutely adores. He had made mistakes and I didn't feel he needed to go to jail and be separated from that child. Eric was extremely helpful and actually, you could tell that he took this case personally because of all of the time and effort he put into the case. He was always available to us and his family. When it came time for the sentencing we all thought he was going to jail. When the judge sentenced him to 3 years parole we were all extremely happy. I can not say enough good things to say about Eric.
