Evaluations for Habeas Petitions and Other Post Conviction Remedies

Post-conviction cases are often more complex than the original case in terms of investigation, discovery, and legal issues. For these reasons, we offer prospective clients a reduced-cost case evaluation before charging the full fee for a post-conviction case. Our evaluation will tell you what potential issues you can raise post conviction, our estimate of the chances of success, and the estimated cost for the full representation if you decide to retain one of our attorneys for your petition for a writ of habeas corpus or appeal. This information will help you make the best decision possible as to whether pursuing post-conviction relief is in your best interest.

If you or a loved one were convicted of a crime in California, you may still challenge that conviction and fight to have your charges reduced or have your criminal record cleared. Filing for post-conviction relief may mean new job opportunities, a return to a normal life, and even prevent your family from being torn apart by immigration officials. Our California-based attorneys have a successful record of representing people convicted of criminal offenses, and can fight for you to get your charges reduced, or get your conviction overturned.
