The Johnson Partnership tend not to get involved in appeals against conviction. Appeals agains conviction are very time consuming and our expert criminal lawyers find it difficult to sift through the information that appeals present. If one of The Johnson Partnerships excellent defence solicitors are chosen for the initial defence, the chances of a successful overturn to a conviction is very low as our defence solicitors will have presented the best case in the hearing.
The Johnson Partnership can sometimes help with appeals against sentence. Everyone wants their sentence shortened. The Courts of Appeal will only rarely overturn sentences and only if the sentencing court is either a) not being told about vital information b) failure to give sufficient weight to important parts of the mitigation or c) strayed too far outside the normal range of sentences for that particular offence in these particular circumstances.
