Fort Lauderale Criminal & General Appeals
Should your case not end as anticipated, Mr. Lowry is an experienced Fort Lauderdale appellate practitioner and can discuss with you the different options in moving forward. Examples of appeals are judicial error, where the judge makes an improper ruling, prosecutorial error, where the prosecutor makes an improper statement before the jury, thereby tainting their perception of the accused, and juror misconduct, where a juror may improperly read about the case in the media and form his or her own opinions about a party before deliberations. After a final judgment or verdict is rendered, the clock starts ticking on when you can file your notice to appeal, often times within 30 days, so be sure to contact Mr. Lowry without delay for a free consultation on your case.
If after exhausting all possible appeals you were unsuccessful in reversing your conviction, Mr. Lowry can explore what’s called post-conviction remedies that could potentially overturn your sentence. Examples of these remedies are ineffective assistance of counsel (3.850), where your trial attorney may have made errors, either during the pretrial or trial stage that greatly affected the outcome of your case, or discovering new evidence (3.800), where new evidence is found after the case is resolved that could have changed the outcome of the case. Even if you did not use Mr. Lowry for the appeal(s), he can sit down with you free of charge to discuss this final option to reverse a conviction. If no appeal was filed or after an appeal is unsuccessful, the clock on this type of litigation starts ticking, so do not delay in contacting Mr. Lowry for a free consultation.
Fort Lauderdale Civil Litigation Attorney
Civil rights litigation, commonly known as police brutality, law enforcement deprivation of rights, or excessive force, often times go hand in hand with an arrest where the officer used excessive force in searching or seizing the arrestee. Another frequent example of a civil rights violation is when an incarcerated defendant or convicted inmate is the victim of excessive force by the corrections staff. Mr. Lowry is a frequent volunteer with the Southern District’s Volunteer Lawyer Program, representing incarcerated, unrepresented plaintiffs in bringing suit against the individual officer(s), the department, city or state, as appropriate. Most civil rights litigation takes place in federal court based on statute and United States Code. Once a deprivation of your civil rights takes place, the time to file your complaint, called the statute of limitations, starts, so do not delay in contacting Mr. Lowry for a free consultation on your potential case.
