Few things are as devastating as going to court and losing your case, especially if you have been wrongly convicted. If you have been unjustly convicted or sentenced then you need an experienced appeals attorney, someone who can get your decision reversed. A good appeals attorney needs an intimate knowledge of the Appellate Court on both the federal and state level so they know how to utilize the appellate process, habeas corpus petitions, and motions for sentence modification to get you the results you want.

What types of appeals does the Don Turner Legal Team handle?
Our legal team can handle most types of appeals but we find that the following three come up the most often:
- Habeas Petitions
- Georgia Criminal Appeals
- Federal Criminal Appeals
Which court will be hearing your appeal?
Yes, you can. It all depends upon which court heard the initial case. For instance, if the original case was heard in a Georgia State Court then the appeal will be heard in the Georgia Court of Appeals or the Georgia Supreme Court. Sometimes in state cases with Habeas petitions, a case will be heard in a federal court on appeal but federal cases are never appealed to the state level.
Will I get to argue my case again and present new evidence on appeal?
Not usually. An appellate court can only consider legal issues, such as mistakes, that might have been made by the lawyers or the judge. To argue your case and present new evidence the Appellate Court will have to grant you a new trial due to errors committed in the lower courts.
