Appellate Practice

Federal and State Criminal Appeals

Post-conviction relief is typically subject to rigid time limits. It is critical that you consult an experienced Appellate Attorney as early as possible. It is also vital that you only hire an attorney with extensive knowledge and proven results in this area of the law. Your best chance at post conviction relief is the skill of your attorney. We have helped clients reverse wrongful convictions and reduce sentences in all Florida courts and in federal courts across the country.

Can you Get a Second Chance?

A judgment of conviction is not always the end of the road. It is typically possible to attack a conviction and/or sentence.

If you plead not guilty but were convicted, there are a number of tactics that can be used to appeal the conviction depending on the circumstances of the case. If you plead guilty, the post-conviction landscape is more difficult to navigate. Whether and how a post-conviction attack can be made is a question that should only be answered by an experienced Appellate Attorney.

Even if a conviction cannot be overturned or a guilty plea withdrawn, this does not mean that post-conviction relief is not available. Convictions can be modified, and sentences can sometimes be reduced.

Appellate Strategies

Appellate law is perhaps the most complex and challenging area of criminal defense. It is a highly specialized area of law that requires very specific skills and experience. Post-conviction strategies involve a combination of research, investigation, and skilled advocacy. We offer a variety of post-conviction relief services including motions, appeals, and petitions.
