TYPES OF POST CONVICTION RELIEF

We specialize in 12 different forms of post conviction relief.

In law, post-conviction refers to the legal process which takes place after a trial results in conviction of the defendant. After conviction, a court will proceed with sentencing the guilty party.

 

In the American criminal justice system, once a defendant has received a guilty verdict, he or she can then challenge a conviction or sentence.

This takes place through different legal actions, known as filing an appealor a federal habeas corpus proceeding.

The goal of these proceedings is exoneration, or proving a convicted person innocent. If lacking representation, the defendant may consult or hire an attorney to exercise his or her legal rights. 

 

The post-conviction process is in place to protect innocent individuals from inherent human error in the criminal justice system.
