Appellate Support

The NYS Indigent Legal Services’ Statewide Appellate Support Center, "SASC," offers a wealth of information for Appellate attorneys.  SASC can provide panel members with templates for appeals on common issues, brainstorm issues on an appeal, help organize a brief and put together a panel for a moot court style argument.  In addition, they can provide guidance on post-conviction issues including filing a notice of appeal, assisting a client with seeking appellant counsel as well as advice on CPL 440.10, 440.20 and CPL 440.47 (Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act or DVSJA) motions.
