Post-Conviction Relief 2018-02-14T03:40:33+00:00

Florida Criminal Defense Attorney On Your Side

Protecting your rights and building the strongest possible defense for your case.

If your appeal in criminal court fails, you can still file a motion for post-conviction relief. You would challenge your conviction and/or sentence after exhausting direct appeals. By asking for post-conviction relief, you’re telling the court that you didn’t receive a full and complete defense.

Some examples of constitutional violations include:

  • Prosecutorial misconduct
  • Juror misconduct
  • Evidence not being heard at your trial
  • Ineffective assistance of counsel

If your motion is successful, you could:

  • Reopen your case after a criminal conviction
  • Vacate the conviction in your case at the judge’s order
  • Set aside or correct a sentence or any fines that you have been ordered to pay
  • Request a new trial on the merits of your case
  • Appeal
