Appealing a DUI

There are ways to fight against a DUI sentencing prior during the trial process and even after the fact. A DUI case can be appealed if you believe you were wrongly convicted due to mistakes or misconduct during your trial. Consult a lawyer at once to discuss your case and how best to proceed with an appeal. You have sixty days to file an appeal after judgment in your case has been rendered. A qualified DUI defense lawyer can prepare the paperwork that will be necessary, and ensure the appeal is properly filed.

If your driver's license was suspended following your DMV hearing, you also have the right to appeal the decision. A case review request will need to be submitted to the Driver Safety Office within 14 days after the DMV decided to suspend or revoke your license. Contact Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP at once for valuable legal guidance regarding the DUI and DMV appeals process. We are an experienced criminal defense firm with a strong background in DUI cases. Attorneys at our office can provide the skilled representation needed when appealing a DUI conviction or a fighting a license suspension.

Grounds to Appeal

If you believe your DUI conviction was unjust, you have a right to appeal the ruling. Appeals are typically made when:

  • You were found guilty even though there was a lack of evidence;
  • The prosecution withheld evidence from your attorney;
  • A juror was abusing drugs or alcohol during your trial;
  • You were represented by an ineffective lawyer;
  • Your constitutional rights were violated;
  • Vital evidence in support of your defense was omitted; and
  • Evidence against you that should not have been used was admitted

A DUI guilty verdict can have many serious consequences, including jail time, fines, restitution, drug and/or alcohol treatment, community service and the loss of your driver's license. Our firm can review your case and compile the critical documentation needed for your appeal.
