The Post-Conviction Relief Process
Post-conviction relief is considered a post-trial motion, which is filed in the trial court, rather than the appellate court. This type of motion generally addresses issues that affect the outcome of trial.
The following are several grounds for post-conviction relief:
- Newly discovered evidence that proves innocence
- Ineffective representation from your lawyer
- Evidence of prosecutor misconduct, juror misconduct, or perjury
- Law changes that affect your conviction
Post-conviction relief cases often start with looking over and investigating the transcriptions and other written materials from the court proceedings. If our legal team determines you have a valid case, we will prepare your motion, file it, and then litigate the claim in court.
