Timing is of crucial importance in any criminal cases. Evidence may exists that needs to be preserved for your defense and court imposed deadlines may be approaching for you to file certain motions to exclude evidence or preserve the ability to argue certain types of defenses in your case.

Abels Law Office will not abandon you after trial if your case needs to be taken up on appeal. Mr. Abels can help you navigate the complex and highly technical requirements and deadlines involved in appealing a criminal case.
