Appellate Law

appellate law

The importance of protecting your rights as a criminal defendant extends beyond the outcome of your case in the trial court. It is sometimes necessary to seek review of an unfavorable ruling or verdict in your case by a higher court, or to respond to an appeal brought by the state. The Law Office of Jenny C. Smith offers representation to parties in appeals to the Court of Appeals of Georgia and the Supreme Court of Georgia. Jenny represents criminal defendants on appeal, and in some cases works in conjunction with trial counsel to pursue or defend appeals.
