Hearings and Appeals

There are many procedural steps within any given criminal case, including several hearings along the way before any trial takes place. Or, if your case has already been decided, you may choose to file an appeal if you are not happy with the outcome. For a criminal defense attorney who will handle all of your hearings and appeals professionally, contact Rinaldi & Poveromo right away. Our team is ready to serve you.


Reduce Stress with Professional Help

When you first learn that you will need to appear at a hearing, you might be overcome with anxiety and nervousness. If you’ve never been in court, it can be an intimidating place – especially if you are alone. There’s no need to put yourself in such a tough spot. Instead, bring a defense attorney from Rinaldi & Poveromo with you for the hearing. Suddenly, you’ll feel much more at ease, knowing you have an experienced attorney at your side from start to finish.


Making the Right Arguments

Of course, bringing in professional counsel for a hearing is about much more than peace of mind. That’s a nice benefit, but the most significant boost you’ll get from hiring a defense attorney is the access to their knowledge and experience. You want to position yourself for the best possible outcome from this hearing, and that’s going to be hard to do on your own. Without an in-depth knowledge of Pennsylvania’s criminal laws and an understanding of how court proceedings work, you may be in over your head.

At Rinaldi & Poveromo, we strive to offer each of our clients in Central and Northeastern Pennsylvania outstanding support in the courtroom setting. We want you to feel confident in the arguments we will make on your behalf, so we’ll work together with you in advance to confirm all the details of the case. In the end, you’ll have a clear understanding of how the case will be handled and what our team is going to do to represent you.


Forming a Quality Appeal

It’s hard to have a great feeling about your case when you head into the appeals process. Since you have already had one outcome go against you, it’s tempting to think that your appeal is destined to fail. But that’s simply not the case. Sure, some appeals cannot get the original decision overturned, but that’s far from a foregone conclusion. At Rinaldi & Poveromo, we have seen plenty of decisions overturned over the years, and we’ll work hard to present the best possible appeal in your case.

As a criminal defense attorney, we understand how the appeals process works and what kinds of arguments may shift the outcome this time around. Often, an appeal will be based less on the facts of the case and more on the application of the law. If you feel the law was improperly applied during your original case, we will make that point to attempt the evidence to be viewed in a different light.


The Guidance You Need

Experience is a huge advantage in the legal world. It’s hard to overestimate how much an experienced defense attorney can do for your case, whatever that case may be. If you simply need some help managing your upcoming hearings, or if you are ready to file an appeal related to your criminal case, call Rinaldi & Poveromo today.
