The Fight Continues
The courtroom, where you face the judge and jury, doesn’t have to be the final battleground.
It’s sad but true: Trial courts don’t always get it right. If your defense lawyer wasn’t as experienced or effective as the Cogdell Law Firm team, your criminal conviction or harsh sentence might be vulnerable.
Judges don’t always apply the law correctly. Juries sometimes return verdicts that simply aren’t supported by sufficient evidence. Maybe your former lawyer missed some steps that denied you a fair trial. A higher court might overturn a trial court judgment for dozens of reasons – and your Cogdell Law Firm appellate team will explore all of them.
Your Cogdell appellate team will employ the same tenacity, focus, and strategic analysis to the post-conviction process that Dan Cogdell – dubbed a “Texas trial legend” by his fellow criminal defense lawyers – applies to the courtroom.
In criminal cases, everything that everyone – the witnesses, the attorneys, and the judge – says during a trial is written down by the court reporter and printed into a transcript. That transcript is the starting point for your appeal. Cogdell appellate lawyers will scour that transcript, double-check it against the papers filed in the case, verify the correct application of statutes and previous case law, and leave no stone unturned in their efforts to reverse your conviction.
When the Stakes Couldn't Be Higher.
When Everything Is
on the Line.
Is at Risk.
