New Trial Motions
For expertly prepared new trial motions, trust Perlmutter & Pourshalimi.
The criminal justice system is far from perfect. Mistakes can and do happen that can affect the outcome of trials and result in unfair convictions. If this has happened to you, you will definitely want to consult a criminal defense attorney about the possibility of filing a motion for a new trial. If the motion is granted, you will get to being a whole new trial with a new jury, just as if the previous trial had never happened.
Possible Grounds for a New Trial Motion
Evidence and documentation related to your first trial will have to be carefully examined to see if there is any possible grounds for a new trial motion, such as:
- Jury misconduct
- Prosecutorial misconduct
- An error of law by the court
- Insufficient evidence
- Lost or destroyed trial record of transcript
- New evidence has been found
Choose Your Attorney Wisely
New trial motions must be worded very carefully, because the judge can only grant the motion if the grounds are clearly stated in the motions. Even if a judge discovers an additional reason why you might deserve a new trial, if that reason was not included in the motion they cannot grant you a new trial until the motion is amended and refiled.
This makes it imperative to choose an experienced defense attorney such as Perlmutter & Pourshalimi to handle any new trial motions you may need to file. You can rely on us for accurate information about the grounds for a new trial in your case along with an expertly prepared motion. We can of course also provide you with skillful and aggressive defense representation in your new trial.
