A defendant convicted of a misdemeanor or felony charge in the Superior Court after a trial is entitled to appeal the conviction. In an appeal, the higher court is being asked to review the original decision for any errors or misconduct that may have affected your case. You may be able to reverse your conviction.

Attorney Glenn Roderman has handled multi-issue complex appeals and cases before multiple Appellate Courts around Florida, as well as the Florida Supreme Court. I took aggressive action for people convicted of various offenses and facing lengthy prison sentences. I can review the circumstances of your trial and let you know if you qualify for an appeal. You can expect honest, professional counsel from start to finish.

Can I appeal my conviction?

While many decisions can be appealed, not everyone has the right to an appeal. if you pled guilty to the crime, you may not be eligible for an appeal. In most cases, only defendants who were convicted by a judge or jury in a trial have the right to appeal.

What are the steps to appeal?

An appeal to the Supreme Court must be filed within 20 days of the sentencing in the Superior Court. It generally cannot be filed late and it never may be filed more than 50 days after Superior Court sentencing.

I meticulously prepare for your appeal and look through every detail of your case. It is often the little details that can make or break an appeal petition.

What can I expect?

If a higher court finds merit in your appeal, then they may:

  • Reverse the conviction
  • Order a new trial, or
  • Reduce the sentence

If you are interested in pursuing a criminal appeal in Florida, do no hesitate to contact me. We can discuss your options and if your situation would benefit from an appeal.

If you are considering hiring Mr. Roderman, well you might want to read this because I’m not easily impressed. First of all, Mr. Roderman is exceptionally talented and has empathy for his clients. He’s well known and respected by prosecutors, judges and law enforcement. He actually was a judge in Davie. His law Knowledge is on point! He... represented my son (a minor in a high profile case) and Glenn stopped a direct file and worked directly with prosecutors to dismiss all charges in a matter of months. My son was charged when he shouldn’t of been by police in the first place (yes a genuinely innocent young man). Also, please take what I’m about to mention in to serious consideration. DO NOT ever rely on a public defender. I have nothing against public defenders however, you will not get the attention or the advocating needed like when you have private counsel. I’ve seen it for myself. Hire Glenn! He’s the REAL DEAL! Glenn if you are reading this, I appreciate you and will always remember what you’ve done for my son. Thanks again and always wishing you greatness.. Joe F.read more

Mr. Roderman is a professional. The outcome of my case was exactly what we discussed during our first meeting. Glenn was very patient and his staff is very polite and knowledgeable. His service is exceptional, and we reached an adjudication after fighting the case for nearly two years. His counsel is worth every cent. Thank you Glenn for your hard... work.read more
