What is a DUI Appeal?

DUI Lawyer Serving All of Metro Tampa

In order to have certain aspects of your case reviewed for fairness or compliance with the law, an appeal on your behalf is sent to a higher court asking for a review of the record in an attempt to find errors. It is not a way to have your case re-tried, but a way to review the previous case to ensure that it was fair and accurate.

Preserving your case for an appellate review is a complicated process that requires dedication and thorough knowledge. With Tampa Criminal Attorney Jackson Hilliard on your side, you have the power to leverage his experience with hundreds of previous DUI cases, including misdemeanor and felony DUI cases, as well as those involving out of state DUIs.

Preparing for a DUI Appeal

Jackson Hilliard strives to ensure your case is prepared for an appeal because in DUI cases, juries don't always rule in your favor. Regardless of whether the evidence proves guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, the jury may consider a DUI defendant unworthy of an acquittal because they see the defendant as a bad driver or morally culpable.

The firm is committed to minimizing this "jury bias" at trial. However, because jury bias does exist and can result in a wrongful conviction, your attorney must preserve the record during trial and before trial.
