Federal Criminal Appeals in New York and the Waiver of Appeal
Even if you have already signed a waiver of the right to appeal as part of your plea agreement, you may still be able to file a Federal Criminal Appeal depending on the terms of the waiver agreement and the sentence.
Typically, a waiver of appeals is part of the settlement agreement between the defendant and the prosecution.

We will examine any waivers to determine whether or not the judge has acted outside the parameters of the agreement and what your chances are on appeal.
