    Attorney Omar Jaleel

    Founder of Jaleel Law P.C.

    I have dedicated my legal career to being a criminal appeals and post-conviction attorney because I am passionate in my belief that everyone deserves their day in court. Often times the deck is so stacked against someone accused of a crime that it can be overwhelming. I love fighting to even that deck for my clients. As a criminal appeals lawyer I get to fight every day for people who feel that all hope is gone. Nearly all my clients are in custody when they hire me and my sole goal is to bring my client home and reunite him with his family. I know that after a finding of guilty it can seem that all hope is lost but I want you to know that the fight has just begun and we can undo the wrong that occurred at trial. Professional ethics prohibit any attorney from promising success but MY PROMISE to you is that I will answer every question that you have, you will ALWAYS know what is going on with your case, and I will fight for your case like we are FAMILY.

    Chicago’s top Criminal Appellate Law Firm providing the best Criminal Defense in Illinois

    Why is Criminal Appellate Law Firm Jaleel Law solely focused upon criminal appeals representation and post-convictions relief?

    Criminal appeals and post-conviction petitions are niche areas within the overall world of criminal defense. Not all criminal defense attorneys handle criminal appellate cases and even less handle post-conviction petitions either in the trial court or on appeal to the appellate court. Lawyers at Criminal Appeals Law Firm Jaleel Law solely focus on Criminal Appeals and defend our clients with best representation.

    Criminal appellate litigation involves a unique skill set that includes an advance ability to research and critically analyze statutory and case law, it requires an ability to write in succinct and persuasive manner and it requires oral advocacy skills that are vastly different than the oral advocacy skills a criminal defense attorney needs at the trial level. An experienced attorney knows, how to improve your chances of success on appeal?

    Unlike a jury trial that is comprised of citizens from the community, an oral argument before the appellate courts involves arguing before a panel of experienced and knowledge justices of the court. Here and unlike a jury trial, arguments based upon passion or “doing the right thing” do not fly and will be quickly shot down by the justices.

    Only concise and coherent arguments that are laser-focused on only the relevant issues on appeal will be successful. Mr. Jaleel, based on his background of having been a former appellate prosecutor, has the unique experience to know how to present an oral argument that has the optimal chance of success. His immense knowledge on the subject and expertise in criminal appeals resulted in several articles such as What is the criminal appeals process in Illinois? which served many people immensely and help them find direction when they needed it the most.

    Most often criminal appeals are not won based upon whether the accused was guilty or not guilty even though cases based upon the prosecutor’s inability to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt are valid arguments in a direct appeal, the strongest arguments are usually based upon some constitutional violation or some error that resulted in the person charged not receiving a fair trial.

    Some common grounds in a criminal appeal are based upon ineffective assistance of counsel, prosecutorial error, judicial error, and other constitutional errors involving the First Amendment, the Fourth Amendment, the Fifth Amendment, Sixth Amendment, and the Fourteenth Amendment.
