Writs and Appeals

Can I Get a Second Chance?

A judgment of conviction is not always the end of the road. It is typically possible to attack a conviction and/or sentence.

If you plead not guilty but were convicted, there are a number of tactics that can be used to appeal the conviction depending on the circumstances of the case. If you plead guilty, the post-conviction landscape is more difficult to navigate. Whether and how a post-conviction attack can be made is a question that should only be answered by an experienced Appellate Attorney.

Even if a conviction cannot be overturned or a guilty plea withdrawn, this does not mean that post-conviction relief is not available. Convictions can be modified, and sentences can sometimes be reduced.

Frequently Asked Questions

Appellate Strategies

Appellate law is perhaps the most complex and challenging area of criminal defense. It is a highly specialized area of law that requires very specific skills and experience. This is not an area for a general practitioner.

An appellate attorney can utilize resources such as DNA typing and new evidence that was not available at the time of the original trial court proceedings. Post-conviction strategies involve a combination of careful research, investigation and skilled advocacy.

The success of a post-conviction attack is highly dependent on the skill of your attorney. We offer a variety of post-conviction relief services including motions, appeals and petitions.

Post-conviction relief is typically subject to rigid time limits. It is therefore critical that you consult an experienced Appellate Attorney as early as possible. It is also vital that you only hire an attorney with extensive knowledge and proven results in this type of work.

Case Evaluation Service

The first question on the minds of most of our clients is "What are my chances?" It is difficult to answer this question without viewing specific documents from the case and determining exactly what happened from both a procedural and factual standpoint. The laws are different in every state, and there is no "one-size-fits-all" answer.

For a nominal fee, we can provide you with a case evaluation to assess the legal and factual viability of a post-conviction attack. If an attack is possible, our clients can then choose to further instruct the firm to undertake the attack.
