    If you don't lodge your appeal in a criminal case in NSW before the 28-day time-limit, and there are mitigating/exceptional circumstances why you didn't, can the court consider grounds to grant you the right to appeal the "criminal conviction" under criminal law e.g. fresh evidence comes to light on the case, other mitigating circumstances why you didn't like financial/or medical reason, not having a lawyer at your 1st trial, evidence held from the defence that caused you from suffering a miscarriage of justice, under duress/undue influence/being homeless etc?

    Basically any valid reason that rendered you the opportunity to lodge an appeal.

    How did you go with this Steve?

    Which courts were you seeking to appeal to and from?

    I wasn't more just curious about the legal processes involved.
