What To Know About Post-Conviction Relief
The conviction and sentencing are not necessarily the end of your case. Following appeal issues may remain that can be raised and litigated in the District Court related to ineffective assistance of trial counsel, newly discovered evidence, and illegal sentencing, to name a few. Our attorneys are experienced trial attorneys that know how to conduct investigation into prior counsel’s performance and discover new evidence. Our attorneys have numerous successful petitions for post-conviction relief under their belts and are effective and prepared litigators in this area.
What Is A Writ Of Habeas Corpus?
A writ of habeas corpus challenges the legality of your confinement. If you are currently incarcerated, we can use a habeas corpus petition to claim that the state is holding you in violation of the law. If such a petition is successful, it could lead to your release from prison.
