Is there anyone who offers free legal advice on what to do after the court offers a plea deal but adds a condition that if accepted you also are required to waive your right to appeal?

I have no idea how to handle the tangled web of our judicial system and I feel very wrong and violated by a current and on going situation. I usually like to handle things on my own but have not been able to move past this.

Anytime you accept a plea in a criminal case it involves a waiver of trial related rights and appeal rights. 

 

You would be wise to have your matter reviewed by an experienced attorney, but, like most people who work at a job, few are willing to go to work without pay.
