The process of a criminal trial can be long, convoluted, and easily misunderstood, and it doesn’t always go your way. If you’ve been convicted of a crime, Dennis Pawelek can fight for an appeal for your criminal defense in Provo.

Decisions made in trial are subject to being reviewed by an appeals court, and the appeals court can overturn the original trial’s decision if they determine that the law was applied incorrectly.

An appeal will be very different than your criminal trial. A trial is where each party presents their cases, presenting evidence and calling witnesses to support their side. A jury weighs the evidence and determines what they believe actually happened.

An appeal is a review of the way the trial court applied the law in your case. No evidence or witnesses are given beyond what was given in the original trial, and it will be reviewed by a panel of judges.

The main form of persuasion in a written argument called an appellate brief, which would be filed by Dennis Pawelek. In it, he would argue that the court’s decision and application of the law was incorrect. If successful, this could overturn your conviction.
