Excessive appeal viability is diluted by a plea and if you weren't sentenced to the maximum, however you should consult an experienced appeals attorney to pursue the matter.

Did you serve a Notice of Appeal within 30 days of your conviction? If you served your time what are you appealing about? Are you on Post Release Supervision? If you agreed to this sentence I see little to zero chance on winning an appeal.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been doing criminal defense work for over 16 years. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. Martindale-Hubbell has given me its highest rating - AV Preeminent - in the areas of Criminal Law, Personal Injury, and Litigation. According to Martindale-Hubbell”AV Preeminent is a significant rating accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence." Fewer than 8% of attorneys achieve an AV Preeminent rating. I also have the highest ranking – “superb” – on Avvo. Feel free to check out my web site and contact me.

It doesn' seem likely that you could appeal at this time. The time for appeal is right after the sentencing. Also you pled guilty so I'm not sure what your grounds for appeal would be. I'm sorry to say that I doubt that you can do anything now about it.

Time is noton your side if you want to file an appeal. As stated above, if you agreed to the terms of the plea agreement, your chances of winning an appeal are significantly reduced.
