Wisconsin Expungement

Criminal Appeals attorneys Wisconsin

Wisconsin is an "automatic right to appeal" state, which means, in short, that a person who has been convicted of a crime in the state of Wisconsin (pleaded guilty or was found guilty by jury trial) may pursue an appeal to the Wisconsin Court of Appeals. Prior to pursuing an appeal to the Court of Appeals in Wisconsin, one must first pursue post-conviction remedies at the Circuit Court level.

Post-conviction remedies

Post-conviction remedies are time sensitive so it is imperative that you contact an experienced criminal appeals attorneys right away if you have been convicted of a crime for which you believe the conviction is incorrect or ordered to serve a sentence that you believe is unduly harsh or incorrect. If you miss meeting the timelines for appeal, your rights may be severely limited or irreparably lost.
