Experienced Federal Appeals Lawyers in Salt Lake City
After a trial ends in a conviction, this is not necessarily the end of the case. Often, it can be demonstrated that the defendant suffered the results of ineffective assistance of counsel. For example, there may have been trial flaws along the way such as:
- The defense lawyer did not call a key witness whose testimony would support the alibi.
- The defense attorney did not show the jury pivotal exculpatory evidence.
- It can be demonstrated that the confession was coerced — and this fact was not given the attention that it deserved during trial.
- A defendant confessed on the basis of promises made by law enforcement — promises that have been overturned by the sentence in court.
- Unavailable witnesses, witness tampering or spoliation of evidence made a fair trial impossible.
