Appeals

At Fisher Legal we champion the cause of vulnerable individuals who have been wronged by the system. Every person has the right to appeal a conviction or sentence imposed in the Magistrate Court, District Court, Supreme Court or the Court of Appeal.

A successful appeal requires identifying and articulating an error in fact or law. Fisher Legal will examine the evidentiary and legal aspects of your appeal and will consult and engage some of Western Australia’s leading barristers who specialise in appeal matters.

Advice will be provided on whether there are reasonable grounds to appeal and if so our team will prepare the appeal in conjunction with an appellant barrister.

Warning: Your right to appeal is time restricted (generally 21 days after conviction or sentence) therefore if you wish to appeal your conviction or sentence please contact one of our lawyers as soon as possible.
