Youngst own Criminal Defense Lawyer Let Us Protect What Matters Most

Appeals Attorney in Youngstown

Effectively Handling both Criminal & Civil Appeals

Ohio's appellate rules are long and complex, and the federal appeals regulations are even more difficult to navigate. When an appeal is your last chance at freedom, immigration, or a civil suit, it is important to turn to a lawyer who knows how to effectively represent clients in the appeals system.

At the law practice of Rhys Brendan Cartwright-Jones, Attorney & Counselor at Law, our attorney has handled more than 300 appeals, ranging from misdemeanor criminal appeals through capital appeals and cases before the Board of Immigration Appeals. Call (330) 299-4077 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation to find out how we can help with your appeal.

Don't Risk Your Future

Attorneys can lose appeals simply by missing a filing date or going over the page limit for a brief. Each appeals court has its own rules, and you need a lawyer who has experience with the court to which you are appealing.

Rhys and our team will work hard to help you accomplish your goals, whether you are fighting a criminal conviction, were denied naturalization or have another immigration appeal, or you are struggling with a civil appeal.

We have presented appeals at various levels, including:

  • U.S. Supreme Court
  • Ohio Supreme Court
  • Federal Court of Appeals
  • Board of Immigration Appeals

Rhys has the benefit of having been on both sides of the appellate system. As a former prosecutor for Mahoning County, he was responsible for every criminal appeal in the county. Based on this experience, he is able to anticipate how the other side will approach a case.


When you apply for jobs, apartments, and licenses, the people reviewing your application will likely look up your criminal record.

If you have a criminal record, even if it is not a conviction, it is less likely that you will be chosen for the job, given the apartment, or allowed to get a license. After your record is sealed, if you are asked on typical applications if you have a criminal record, you can honestly say that you do not. With narrow exceptions, under the Ohio Revised Code, the offense is presumed not to have happened.
