    Philadelphia Criminal Appeals and PCRA Petitions

    When defendants are convicted after a trial, it is not the end of the litigation process.  Defendants have the right to appeal their convictions via direct appeals or PCRA petitions.  Each type of appeal has its own set of rules as to when defendants must file and the grounds of appeal.

    Appeals, especially PCRA petitions, are complicated and defendants should have an experienced lawyer by their side.
