HAVE YOU BEEN ACCUSED OF:

Post-Conviction Relief

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.

POST-CONVICTION RELIEF REMEDIES

  • Appeals
  • Writs
  • Petitions
  • PCRs (post-conviction relief proceedings)
  • and more

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.

Getting the Best Post-Conviction Result

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.

The lawyers at LibertyBell Law Group have won numerous awards, including the National Top 100 Trial Lawyers, the Client’s Choice Award, and have also been featured in the best reputable and world known magazines, such as Time Magazine and Newsweek. The most important step for our attorneys is to find out which post-conviction remedy should be pursued first. In doing so, our lawyers make sure none of the options are lost. LibertyBell Law Group’s lawyers are well respected by judges and peers across the country. That respect goes a long way in establishing rapport with the judge. Our lawyers know how to argue your best position, investigate to find favorable evidence, look for constitutional errors and more.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY:

  • Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub.
        

    I hired Gina and her team for my son who was facing 10 years for something they said he did when he was 17 years old. Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub. She did not stop. She defied and ended the charges. We are so grateful to her and her team. They gave us our son. He recovered his life!

  • Best defense lawyers in the country.
        

    I hired this law firm in 2014 for my son who was facing 16 years in prison for a felony robbery. Lina Helou answered all our questions. I was extremely distraught regarding what my son was facing but Lina comforted me and told me that it would be okay. And thank goodness LibertyBell saved my son from going to jail and they were able to obtain only 3 years of probation. I could not have hired a better law firm for my son and if you want the best defense call LibertyBell Law Group. Thank God for this great group of lawyers.

I could not have asked for better service from the moment I called, until my case was over. I was glad I made the right choice. Thank you again LibertyBell Law Group!

  • She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence.
        

    My father had found this group though his company though his coworkers. I was assigned Gina Tennen and I cannot explain in just a review on how gratefull I am to be working with her. My case was an accusation of unlawful sex. This had looked extremely bad on my part since I was in a fraternity and she was in a sorority. During these times with Greek life, there are too many bad stigmas surrounding these organizations. Gina had believed in me and known that I was innocent and that these accusation just were not true. She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence. I 100% recommend this law group because they are willing to put in the work to help your situation.

  • Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding.
        

    When I first heard I was under a criminal investigation, I initially thought I would try and resolve this in the best way possible, without legal representation, as we were all interested in a "just" outcome. I quickly discovered that was not the case and contacted Gina at Liberty Bell. She clearly described the expectations and the choices available to me. She was always available to me, and when I called, if she couldn't talk with me at that time, she would quickly get back to me. Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding. Her fee's were stipulated up front, as well as what those fees covered and what they did not.

  • Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one.
        

    Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one putting pressure on the sherrif's office to get things handled. With Child molestation accusatinos being thrown around Gina and Attorney Castro were great at keeping the pressure on and had no charges filled. The DCFS indications were appealed and we won with flying colors. Great service, great work, and will use again for all legal matters.
