Are you being charged with a crime? Has a loved one be arrested? You are now in an extremely serious situation. You are facing the power of the government, the police, the prosecutors and all their ressources. It does not matter if you are innocent or not: you are up against a mighty power. So, who is on your side?
Sometimes you cannot avoid a conviction. But there are cases where mistakes were made: by you, by the prosecutor, by your attorney, by the judge, even by the jury. That is what an appeal is for: if you think the law was not followed, you need to have some other judges look at your case. But you need to be fast: an appeal can only be filed for a short while after your conviction. You need a criminal appeals attorney at your side to help you. Call us.
What if after a while it turns out that you should not have been convicted? What if you were not explained the consequences of a plea? What if you need to have your record cleared?
All this is called post-conviction relief. If you should not have been convicted, if there are new developments, you might need a habeas corpus proceeding. That means you will ask a court to look if you really should be in jail, prison or under any other penalty. You might not have known what consequences your plea had: someone should have explained it to you. So now we might want to revoke it. We will help you with all post-conviction relief. Talk to us.
