Creative strategies make the difference in successful appeals
The attorney you hire to investigate and file a successful appeal must be knowledgeable about the appeals process and time limits and have the ability to communicate clearly and effectively the grounds for your appeal. I am attorney Kerrisa Chelkowski. I apply creative, intelligent strategies to represent people through the entire appellate process. As a former prosecutor, I have an in-depth knowledge of the tactics used by prosecuting attorneys. I understand how prosecutors may ignore your rights. I use this knowledge and experience to analyze your case and prepare your appeal.
There is an important time limitation on filing
It is very important to remember that you only have 30 days in which to file a notice of appeal after a final judgment is entered in your case. If you do not file within 30 days, you may lose your right to appeal forever. The Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski will handle every component of your appeal, from pre- and post-trial motions through appellate court proceedings.
Appealing your sentence
In the landmark case United States v. Booker (2005), the United States Supreme Court ruled that sentences can be appealed if the judge applied unconstitutional criteria for imposing a sentence exceeding the federal sentencing guidelines. I can represent you in your sentencing appeal, including challenges to lower court decisions and jury instructions.
