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.

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.

I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.

Jonathan A Kessous did an outstanding job in handling my case. He was able to get the most serious charge and several other charges against me dropped and my fine greatly reduced. I was most impressed with his professionalism.competence and the timely manner in which he responded to all my questions and concerns. This demonstrated to me that I was a priority and not just a client!

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!
