Criminal Appeals

Lecky Quinn represents PEI residents in all accused criminal matters including appeals.

Have you recently been found guilty of an offence in a P.E.I. courtroom?

A person found guilty of a criminal offence has a statutory right to appeal the conviction on a question of law. In addition, the Criminal Code gives appellate courts the power to overturn a guilty verdict if it is found to be unreasonable or unsupported by the evidence. You have 30 days from the date of your conviction to appeal your conviction and you need a dedicated, detail-oriented lawyer who knows criminal law and appellate court law by your side. You need Lecky Quinn.

At Lecky Quinn, we take a pragmatic approach to Criminal Appeals. After we are retained, we give the trial transcript a thorough review and develop an appeal strategy at the front end. We let you know the risk and anticipated cost from the beginning; we don’t tell you after your appeal is dismissed that “it wasn’t a great case to appeal anyway” and hand you a large, unexpected bill.
