Criminal Appeals Attorney Omer Jaleel started Jaleel Law and focused his practice on criminal appeals because he realized as an appellate prosecutor that most people were not receiving the quality of legal representation that they deserved. So many times he saw arguments that should never have been made or arguments that should have been made that weren’t. It has been said that being an attorney is more art than science and that is even truer in appellate litigation. Appealing a criminal case is like a game of chess between yourself and the prosecutor where before each move critical analysis must occur weighing the cost benefit of each legal move and a major part of this analysis is predicting how your opponent will likely respond and your own potential response to your opponent’s move. This second and third level of thinking is critical to having a successful appeal. Having been an appellate prosecutor this thinking is second-nature to him.
My passion is making novel arguments that push the law further and challenge preconceived notions on “how things have always been done.” Only with the courage that is backed by over a decade of experience handling the most complex criminal appeals as both an appellate prosecutor and as a criminal appeals attorney is it possible to correctly apply and sometimes even change the law for my client’s benefit.
