Appeals refer to the process in which cases are reviewed, where parties may request a formal change to an official decision. There are two types of appeal, an appeal against the sentence handed down by the District Court Judge, or an Appeal against conviction.

Here at SCL, we handle appeals to the District Court, the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal and we also deal with license appeals. Our team of qualified solicitors and barristers aim for 1 of 3 outcomes:

  1. Quash the conviction and find you not guilty in the case of a conviction appeal;
  2. Set aside the sentence and vary the sentence in the case of a severity appeal;
  3. Dismiss the appeal and affirm the sentence or conviction.

Appeals are very complex and SCL’s team is highly qualified in this area. Contact us on 0434 856 436 for a consult today.
