Civil and Criminal Appeals in State and Federal Appellate Courts
If you were on the wrong end of a jury verdict or unfavorable ruling, and believe that you did not get a fair shake at trial, you may have grounds to appeal the outcome.
The appellate attorneys of Stenger, Roberts, Davis & Diamond, have a solid record of favorable appeals in both appeals of civil cases and appeals of criminal convictions or sentences. Based in Wappingers Falls, we handle state and federal appeals on behalf of clients in the Hudson Valley and throughout New York state.

There is a brief window to file notice of appeal, as short as 10 days in federal court appeals. To give yourself the best chance of success, you need to give your attorney as much lead time as possible. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.

Members of our team are admitted to handle appeals before the New York's Supreme Court Appellate Division, the New York State Court of Appeals, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (federal court) and the U.S. Supreme Court.
We have handled appeals in many areas of the law, including:

On appeal, the appellate court can only consider specified errors at the trial court such as admissibility of evidence, jury instructions, prosecutor misconduct or ineffective assistant of your original counsel. Our lawyers are skilled at identifying errors from the trial record, writing concise appellate briefs and presenting oral arguments before the appellate justices.
