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.

I recently was in the classic wrong place at the wrong time scenario. I have used Glenn in the past and did not hesitate one second to contact him when everything went down. Within 3 weeks he already had my case dismissed! Glenn is the real deal and to be quite frank he is a beast of an attorney! If you are facing any legal issues pick up the... phone and call Glenn Roderman. From the first phone call I promise you will feel a sense of peace knowing that you have the best of the best in your corner! I cannot thank Glenn enough for everything he has done for me!read more

I HIRED GLENN RODERMAN TO HANDLE A LEGAL ISSUE. FROM THE FIRST FREE CONSULT HE OFFERED OVER THE PHONE, TO OUR FIRST IN PERSON MEETING, I FELT AT EASE AND KNEW I WAS IN GOOD HANDS. GLENN OFFERS DECADES OF VALUABLE LEGAL WISDOM. HIS VAST EXPERIENCE IN EITHER REPRESENTING THE PLAINTIFF OR DEFENDANT MAKES HIM VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXPERIENCED ON... BOTH SIDES OF ANY CASE. IT WAS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH GLENN. HE WAS HONEST, PATIENT, COMPASSIONATE, CARING, PROFESSIONAL, ASSERTIVE AND HARD WORKING. HE MADE HIMSELF AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS/CONCERNS DAY AND NIGHT, GAVE UP HIS WEEKENDS WHEN NEEDED AND MOST IMPORTANTLY OFFERED PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT THROUGHOUT MY CASE. I WRITE THIS GOOGLE REVIEW TO SAVE ANYONE FROM HIRING ANY OTHER ATTORNEY OTHER THAN GLENN RODERMAN. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY, A MORE DEDICATED, SEASONED, LOYAL AND HONORABLE LAWYER CANNOT BE FOUND!read more
