Response: Yes. Given the age of the convictions, there would be very little expectation of having an appeal granted. The best time to contest a charge is when it is first issued to ensure that any available defenses are argued on your behalf and that an negotiations to reduce the nature of the charge(s) issued can be made. The longer a conviction is left, the less avenues of recourse will be available and the less likely they will be to succeed.
