Grounds for an Appeal

Many reasons exist for filing an appeal or a writ. Any act of impropriety or mistake during any part of the process can provide a reason. This applies to both the court proceeding in which you were convicted and the Department of Motor Vehicle hearing that took away your driver's license. Some examples include:

  • Your previous attorney neglected an important opportunity that would have impacted the outcome of your case.
  • Your sentence is beyond that which would typically be given for your situation.
  • You feel there was an error made at your DMV hearing that resulted in driver's license suspension or revocation
  • You have discovered that your DUI arrest was unlawful.
  • You feel that a mistake was made on the breath test, giving an incorrect BAC (blood alcohol content) reading

At Roberts & Elliott, LLP, our attorneys are experienced in looking for opportunities to correct any errors that were made during your initial case. We will investigate your case to test the validity of every step that was taken against you. Our goal is to have the decision reversed or find some way to better your position. To meet that goal, we will look for the appropriate tool, whether it is an appeal to a higher court or a Department of Motor Vehicles writ. If your driver's license is suspended, we can appeal the suspension by asking the Superior Court to issue a writ.
