Appellate and post-conviction criminal laws in NYAppellate and post-conviction criminal law requires different skill sets than trying cases. Not many NY criminal law attorneys handle both criminal trial cases and appeals. While presenting a case at trial involves the ability to speak to juries convincingly and communicate at their level, managing an appeal mainly involves excellent writing skills. The appellate lawyer must have a mastery of legal terms and the writing style appropriate for judges and a legal audience, must be adept at framing arguments, and have extensive knowledge of relevant cases and precedents.
Accomplished trial and appellate skills make Labe Richman rather unique. He is an experienced lawyer in NY criminal law who can be compassionate about your situation, aggressively represent you, and make every possible effort to win your case or obtain the most favorable outcome possible.
