Appeals Process in Texas
Keep in mind that not all of the following options may apply to your specific situation. However, the following is a general overview of the criminal appeals process in Texas:
- Sentencing in trial court: After a conviction, sentencing is handed down at the trial court level.
- Court of appeals: You have 30 days after sentencing (there are exceptions to this where extensions can be made) to file a notice of appeal. The appeal is filed in one of the 14 court of appeals in Texas.
- Texas Court of Criminal Appeals: If the case is not remanded or reversed at the court of appeals level, you have 45 days to file an appeal to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court level in Texas.
- United States Supreme Court: The next level would be to file a petition for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court.
- Appeal United States Supreme Court ruling
Writ of Habeas Corpus
Also possible within both the Texas trial court and to the Supreme Court levels is a writ of habeas corpus. This is a judicial mandate ordering a prisoner to appear before a judge to determine if he or she is lawfully imprisoned. The constitutionality of the prisoner’s conviction is determined, and the court may order his or her release. Decisions from a writ of habeas corpus can also be appealed.

Thank you Tad Nelson for standing up for me and what is right, Tad Nelson is obviously well known and respected through out the court system as he spoke with authority and precisely to the assistant DA resulting in the dismissal of my case before the case went to trial. Thank you again. if you want it done call Tad Nelson
I hired them a while back for a DWI out in Harris County, they're good and if you need help with any kind of legal matter, give em a call. For a lawyer, Tad has a great personality so working with him should be easier than working with other lawyers.
He is the one lawyer that I can call and put my trust into. We’ve used him a couple of times, once for a family matter and another time for a troubled relative. He’ll help, tell you the truth with no sugar-coating, and will work for his salt. He’s a good guy and when you go to their office, they make you feel at home, like you’re part of the team. Good lawyers and great folks.
I've had the pleasure of working with Tad personally as a technology consultant for him in the past. We've eaten lunch and dinner together. I know that Tad is very dedicated to his clients and cares for them off the clock. He's definitely the lawyer you want on your side.
