Post-conviction relief remedies are legal proceedings that can be made in federal or state courts by lawyers to request that a conviction or sentence be corrected or vacated. There are numerous types of post-conviction relief available. Not all post-conviction remedies will be applicable to each case and could actually hurt your case if not done properly. Many have a succession that must be followed, that is, they must be exhausted in a particular sequence, especially in regards to filing in federal court after state court for some cases. They also should be written in the expected legalese and include all the references, formatting and supplementary documents a judge would expect thereby increasing its success. Of course, depending on the unique characteristics of your case and circumstances, some types of post-conviction relief will be more viable than others and some not at all.
It is always best to have a lawyer with expertise in post-conviction matters review your case and all extenuating circumstance to determine which is the best route to take and most likely to succeed. LibertyBell Law Group’s lawyers have successfully worked on countless post-conviction relief cases, including the below.
Our lawyers comb over your case and will evaluate whether pursuing a post-conviction remedy would be best done in a state or federal court. They will take in many aspects related to your case, such as your particular state’s history in granting post-conviction motions and petitions, new laws, and new evidence among others.
Type in the details of your legal matter in the form located on the right and our top attorneys will comb over it and review it.
It is important to note that each state court varies in their legal principles and standards and so do the states versus the federal courts. Lawyers say these differences can be very significant, such as the time limits or amount of evidence required for a filing. Furthermore, for some types of post-conviction relief you must show that you have exhausted other remedies first and must give an account of that in accordance with that particular court’s standards. If court procedures and standards are not followed, the courts have been known to deny your petition, writ, or motion. Generally speaking, lawyers know federal standards have much stricter requirements than state courts.
Hiring a lawyer is very important to get the best result on your post-conviction relief because you can’t keep arguing the same point over and over again. When a court decides on a post-conviction relief remedy, other courts will uphold that decision unless new and convincing evidence comes to light or a new law is applied retroactively. In many cases, you only get one chance to convince a judge; you do not want to blow that chance.
