Your Options Are Not Over After A Conviction
A conviction is not the end of the road. You may still have the option of filing an appeal to challenge the lower court’s decision. To get this done, you will need the assistance of an attorney.

Two Post-Conviction Avenues
There are two basic avenues through which post-conviction relief can be sought. This is through direct appeals and a motion for a new trial.
- Motions for new trials are sought through Statues 44.10 in state court and 22.55 in federal court. This motion is often based on new evidence or ineffective counsel at the initial trial, heard by the same judge that presided over the initial trial. These motions can be submitted after the initial trial or after a guilty plea.
- Direct appeals are often appealing the decisions of admission by the presiding judge at trial to an appellate court. These can be done after a trial when there is a possibility for reversal.
We can also explore options such as parole, habeas corpus proceedings, clemency and many other alternatives.
Legal Experience On Which You Can Rely
Post-conviction relief is filled with complex regulations, red tape and administrative procedures. You only get one chance at it, so you need an attorney whom you know is reliable.
