Appeals And Post-Conviction Relief

Criminal Attorneys Representing Clients In Milwaukee, In Waukesha County And Throughout Southeast Wisconsin

Not every criminal defense attorney has the skills necessary to handle a criminal appeal of a conviction or court ruling. At the law firm of Buting, Williams & Stilling, S.C. in Brookfield and Glendale, Wisconsin, we have appellate experience throughout Wisconsin. If a trial court made an error or you feel that you did not have proper representation in your case, contact us to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced appellate attorney.

The success of many criminal appeals rests upon the thoroughness of the record made at the initial trial or other proceeding and the type of representation you received from your attorney. Our attorneys work diligently to preserve your ability to appeal. We gather not only the trial record, but all discoverable trial evidence. When appropriate we will employ investigators and experts to gather evidence that may have been missed at trial. Types of criminal appeals we will handle include:

Our firm will represent you in motions for postconviction relief, criminal appeals for wrongful convictions and appeals following plea bargains. We understand the unique procedures associated with filing and arguing an appeal before the trial and appellate courts. Sometimes it is necessary or advantageous to file a motion back in the trial court before going to the court of appeals. Often the case can be won at the trial court level without the necessity of a long appeal. In appropriate cases, when the issues are well researched and presented, a trial court judge may recognize its errors and order a new trial or allow a plea to be withdrawn. If your case requires representation before the court of appeals or supreme court our experienced attorneys will fight hard to get you the best possible outcome.
