Criminal Appeals In Wisconsin

Contextual Image

Once you have been convicted of an offense, you have the right to appeal your case to a higher court. If you feel that the prosecutor, the judge or your original attorney made a mistake in your case, call Lubar & Lanning, LLC, to learn about your options for appeal.

You may appeal a decision, verdict or sentence for any type of criminal charge. It is important to have the right criminal defense lawyer working on your appeal, however. Appeals and other post-conviction motions are complex proceedings that differ from trial law. You need an attorney experienced in appellate work. Contact the proven appeals lawyers at Lubar & Lanning, LLC, at 262-384-4436.

Experienced, Aggressive Representation

Common issues on appeal are whether the circuit court properly ruled on the admissibility of evidence, whether law enforcement violated your constitutional rights and whether the circuit court conducted your trial in a fair manner. Some examples of attorney Chad Lannings's success on appeal include:

  • A new trial for a client when he learned the courthouse doors were locked for part of the trial
  • All evidence suppressed and all charges dropped where the traffic stop was based on a "loud muffler"
  • A new trial for a client where biased jurors were on the jury panel
  • All evidence suppressed and all charges dismissed when the stop was based on an anonymous 911 call

Attorney Chad A. Lanning has pursued — and won — appeals in front of Wisconsin's highest courts. He has had evidence suppressed, new trials granted, and cases dismissed as a result of appeals he has filed. Other criminal defense lawyers in Wisconsin frequently trust Chad to litigate their appeals to ensure their clients receive the best chance of success. He has been selected for inclusion in Wisconsin Super Lawyers five times since 2006, a distinction awarded to no more than 5 percent of Wisconsin attorneys each year.

Appeals are unique because attorneys may not bring new evidence; they must make compelling legal arguments using the evidence that has already been presented in the case. Our lawyers are skilled in appeals as well as in preparing trial cases for future appeal. If you are considering appealing your conviction, it is important that you hire an experienced, aggressive appellate attorney.
