What can I use as the basis for my appeal?

Appeals can only be filed under certain conditions. Being of the opinion that your judge made a mistake or had some kind of bias against you is not enough. Your Toronto appeals lawyer will tell you that you can only challenge your conviction and/or sentence where the judge has erred in law, misapprehended the facts or committed an error based on mixed law and fact. Your appellate lawyer will give you further information about whether or not you have a valid basis for an appeal.
