McLawhorn Legal concentrates on appellate and post sentencing motions in Columbia, South Carolina.
McLawhorn Legal can advocate for your appellate and post sentencing matters.
Appellate and post-sentencing motions are much different from trials. They require a very different set of skills. You may want to seek an attorney who is experienced and skilled in handling this practice area, even if it’s not the same attorney who represented you the first time.
McLawhorn Legal has a unique perspective and extensive experience in state and federal appellate law. Our experience includes working at the South Carolina Court of Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, as well as representing clients on appeal and in federal post sentencing motions. After a civil verdict, either side can appeal the case if there is a disagreement with the verdict. In a criminal case, a defendant may be able to appeal his/her conviction or guilty plea if a legal error at trial or at sentencing was committed by the court.
