Every defendant convicted of a crime has a constitutional right to appeal his conviction.
If the conviction is for a felony offense, the appeal is from the district court to the Colorado Court of Appeals. If the conviction is a misdemeanor from the county court, the first step on appeal is to the district court.
In the appeal from a criminal conviction and sentence, the appellate lawyer carefully reviews the trial transcripts, pleadings, jury instructions, and other collateral material. The lawyer then creates an argument for the reversal of the conviction. Appellate work is very technical, and requires significant training.
