We understand that being convicted of a crime is devastating and stressful to both the person convicted and their loved ones. It is important, however, to remember that a conviction does not end the legal fight. There are numerous legal procedures available to challenge that conviction, seek the reversal of a conviction, and/or the reduction of a sentence. Therefore, it is important to seek the assistance of an attorney qualified and experienced in post-conviction remedies.
A person convicted of a crime following a jury or court trial is entitled to appeal his or her misdemeanor or felony conviction in the state court as long as a Notice of Appeal is filed within the applicable time limitations. A person who pleads guilty may also be able to appeal the conviction in certain situations. Moreover, once a person’s direct appellate remedies are exhausted, there are other vehicles available to challenge the conviction in both state and federal court. Finally, if there are no more vehicles available to challenge a conviction due to the passage of time or other procedural hurdles, a person sentenced to life in prison can seek release through a Board of Parole Hearing.
Handling each of these legal hurdles is challenging and requires an attorney with experience in and knowledge of this specialized legal area. We have more than 27 years of combined experience handling post-conviction matters, including direct appeals, state and federal Petitions for Writ of Habeas Corpus, proceedings before the Board of Parole Hearings, and challenging the Board of Parole Hearings’ findings and decisions.
We provide unparalleled personal attention to each of our cases. When you hire an attorney with our office, you will receive the legal expertise of that attorney, not another unqualified or inexperienced attorney or paralegal.
