Being found guilty in a court-martial can leave you unsure of who to turn to for legal assistance, especially if you are told that the decision is final. Our Virginia Beach appeals attorney at Invictus Law is experienced at handling military criminal defense cases to help you seek a new trial.

When Can an Appeal Be Filed?
There are certain qualifications that must be met in order to file for an appeal, or you must be able to prove that your representation was insufficient. Our firm can work with you to gather evidence to clearly show what type of mistake was made in your trial and why you should be allowed a new trial or sentence.
Issues we can present as cause for a new trial include:
- The sentence given was too strong for the crime allegedly committed.
- There was a mistake made in the selection or dismissal of the jury.
- You were subjected to unreasonable charges.
- They did not have sufficient evidence to convict you.
- Mistakes were made by the judge in military court.
