Important Dates When Filing a Criminal Appeal in Illinois


Criminal Appeals in Illinois Outline

If you or a family member has been charged with a crime, hiring a lawyer to represent you is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. In Illinois, case outcomes can sometimes hinge on evidence gathered by police. This evidence could be potentially challenged by an experienced attorney. If a skilled lawyer is not on your side during the initial trial, any pieces of evidence that may work against you may be the difference between winning and losing in the courtroom.

Filing an appeal is a time sensitive process and failing to meet the deadlines can result in dismissal of your appeal.
