Case Remanded After an Appeal in Michigan

In most Michigan appellate cases, the case is “remanded” after a successful appeal, meaning that it is sent back to the lower court from which the verdict or sentence that has been appealed originated. The trial court or judge who was responsible for your conviction or sentencing will be sent the case, and your attorney will have to represent your best interests in the next stage of your case.

After a Michigan criminal appeals case is remanded, there are many outcomes possible, including:

  • New trial for the charges faced
  • Plea bargain negotiation
  • New sentence hearing (verdict stands but sentence is altered)
  • In rare cases, release from jail/prison

Contact Grabel & Associates immediately to speak with a criminal appeals lawyer no matter how far along in the appellate process you are. It is rare to have an appeal accepted, and after winning, you need to be sure you make the most of the opportunity you have been given. Work with the best possible attorney to protect your freedom in any of Michigan’s 83 counties.

How to Win A Criminal Case Appeal in Michigan

The first step to any successful appeal is hiring an experienced criminal appeals lawyer. After reviewing motions and appeals options, our attorneys can prepare compelling briefs, ensure all deadlines are met, and do everything possible to have your appeal heard. There is no testimony given in appellate cases, and it is rare to have oral argument presented, so you need a lawyer who understands the difference between appellate cases and trial court strategies.

Under his direction, our team will extensively review the details of your case and work to develop an effective appellate defense strategy.
