Handling the appeals in non-capital cases includes the work in the appellate court and, when professionally appropriate, filing for writs to the Supreme Court. It also includes specifically those cases appealed by the State, such as when a statute is declared unconstitutional.
Capital appeals are handled by our sister agency, The Capital Appeals Project. (There is a link on our Links page for information about that office.)
