Appellate Law

Appellate Division or 3RD Circuit Court

The Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court is the Court to which all appeals from convictions are argued.

The Federal Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, PA is the Court to which those who are convicted in New Jersey Federal Criminal Courts (Newark, Trenton, Camden) can appeal.

A criminal defendant is entitled to only one direct appeal after a conviction. This means you get only one bite at the apple. Consequently, you had better make the most of it.

In a criminal appeal, criminal lawyers seek a reversal of the conviction based upon legal errors made during the trial and during any pretrial motions or hearings. Reversing a conviction and winning a new trial are not so easy to achieve. The legal standards governing the review of trial errors generally favors the decisions and rulings made before and during the trial.

In addition, most Prosecutors’ Offices employ experienced appellate attorneys who specialize in writing criminal appellate briefs aimed at upholding convictions and sentences. Effective criminal appellate advocacy requires extensive knowledge of law, commitment to detail, legal writing ability, and dogged determination.

Level the playing field. Hire the right team.

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!

Robert White III, Esq. was professional and efficient in every step of the process. From dealing with my Worker's Comp insurance to making sure I got the best care with a skilled neurosurgeon and making sure my case was handled fairly by a judge and the court system. I would definitely recommend Garces, Grabler and LeBrocq for anyone who was in need of representation for such matters.

Johnathan Kessous did a fantastic job handling my case. I hope i never need his expertise again...but if I do, he would be my first choice for legal representation. I had gotten a speeding ticket on the NJTPK going 84 in a 55 which resulted in a state trooper issuing me a 5 point ticket. Johnathan got it reduced down to zero points... just a fine.

I was very impressed with the professionalism and quick turn-around time from all the participants from GGL that assisted me. I would like to especially thank my attorney Jonathan Kessous. His credentials are very notable he is one of four attorneys throughout the entire state of NJ certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Trial Specialist in both Criminal and Municipal Court Law matters. My case was very serious and could have resulted in jail time or suspension of my license. Jonathan was able to resolve my case very favorably. I am extremely thankful for his assistance. I would also like to recognize and thank his Paralegal Jasmin Caba and his Personal Assistant Marianne Crisitello for their assistance in communicating and preparing me for my trial. They are a great team and I would highly recommend them.

My uncle had some problems with meals at a Monmouth Count assisted living home. The home charged over $5,000 per month and he was not being offered food that he liked on many occasions and his complaints did not resolve the issue. I called Garces & Grabler on his behalf and they sent an attorney to the home to first speak with my uncle, then speak with the director. Within a few day, his dietary needs were met. Everything was resolved amicably and the law firm charged, in my opinion, a very reasonable fee for their services.
