Criminal Post-Conviction

Post-Conviction motions at the State or Federal level require a full appreciation of the mechanics of trial and appellate practice as well as the obligations of defense counsel. With more than 15 years of courtroom experience, I am able to effectively identify and plead post-conviction issues, including ineffective assistance of counsel and actual innocence. I will review and analyze your case with you to implement the best post-conviction strategy. Post-conviction services include:
