Appeals to the Court of Criminal Appeals and the Supreme Court
Just because something bad has happened at the trial court level does not mean your rights are exhausted. In Tennessee, you have the absolute right to directly appeal your case to the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals. If that opinion is against you, you can then apply for permission to appeal to the Tennessee Supreme Court.
We can handle your appeal, all the way through to the Tennessee Supreme Court if necessary, to include drafting the appellate brief, assembling the appellate record, and oral argument in front of the appellate court. You have only 30 days from the last action on your case to file an appeal.
If you were convicted in general sessions, you have the right to appeal to the trial court. You have 10 days to appeal from general sessions court.
As well, you have a 30 day window to request withdrawal of your guilty plea.
