Appeals

Home Appeals

If you are considering an appeal against a decision from a Local Court, District Court or Supreme Court, you should seek advice from our criminal law specialists – preferably an accredited criminal law specialist so that you can get appropriate advice about the process of an appeal, the likely costs and the potential outcomes. Time limits normally apply – so don’t delay.

There are different types of appeals:

  • appealing against severity of the sentence – known as a severity appeal or sentence appeal
  • appealing against conviction or finding of guilt – known as a conviction appeal
  • appealing against both conviction and severity – known as an all grounds appeal
