Knowing the law and the nuances associated with each criminal offense is critical to handling a successful appeal. While some errors that occur at trial are repetitive, numerous errors are found solely as a result of experience and knowledge.  Mr. Forman, with over 23 years of experience, has the knowledge and experience you need to put you in the best position to win your appeal.  It is shocking to see so many lawyers who claim to be appellate lawyers who simply do not know the law. It is equally disturbing when judges simply do not follow or know the law. 

Mr. Forman, who personally handles all of his own criminal appellate and post-conviction matters, has repeatedly found mistakes made by trial lawyers and judges who simply do not know or understand the current law.  Of course, the biggest problem for criminal appellate lawyers in Florida is the failure of trial counsel to object and preserve the issue for appeal. This failure requires the appellate lawyer to win by arguing fundamental error on appeal – a very high standard. Although this standard creates an additional problem on appeal, Mr. Forman has appealed and won using this standard.

Regardless whether the error involves an affirmative defense, a defective jury instruction, improper argument by the prosecutor or simply a mistake in applying the law, Mr. Forman can assist in handling any appeal for any criminal offense. A few of these charges are listed below:
