Dedicated 100 Percent To Criminal Defense
Criminal cases involve a number of procedural stages for challenging charges, convictions, and sentence. Proceedings for post-conviction relief are generally the final step for raising such challenges after all appeals have been exhausted. Generally, a person convicted of a crime has only one opportunity to pursue post-conviction relief. Therefore, that motion needs to be handled successfully the first and only time. Through a successful petition for post-conviction relief, you may be able to reopen your case, vacate the conviction, modify the jail sentence or fine, or obtain a new trial or appeal. Post-conviction relief is an important safeguard for protecting constitutional rights, but must be handled by an experienced attorney who is familiar with the complex nature of post-conviction litigation.

Our extensive trial and appellate experience also enhances our post-conviction practice.
