Appeals Lawyer Oakland, CA

Getting a Second Chance After a Criminal Conviction

Too often, people are unfairly convicted of crimes because of procedural errors or an incorrect application of the law to their case. These mistakes can prevent you from receiving a fair trial or receiving effective assistance of counsel. The criminal appeals process gives you an opportunity to show that you should never have been convicted in the first place.

The Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed is led by Oakland appeals attorney Nabiel C. Ahmed, whose experience with helping clients pursue criminal appeals in California makes him an invaluable resource for thousands of the accused. Our firm serves clients throughout the Bay Area, equipping us with knowledge of both local law enforcement tactics and local courthouse procedures.

Finding Procedural Errors in Your Original Trial

During any trial or hearing process, the judge has to make many decisions, including: which evidence the prosecutors will be allowed to use against you; whether the evidence supports the charges; how the law should be applied to your case; and what kinds of instructions will be given to the jury.

Our Oakland appeals attorneys have successfully appealed cases involving:

If you are disenfranchised by the legal system because you did not get a fair opportunity to defend yourself, our firm may be able to take your case to a higher court, show what was done wrong during your trial, and obtain a reversal.

It takes different skills for a defense lawyer to handle one of these cases as opposed to a criminal trial. Attorney Ahmed has a distinguished record of success with legal research and writing, and his skills were developed while working in the California Supreme Court. We proudly help clients in Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, Concord, and the surrounding areas!
