PRE-TRIAL WRITS OF HABEAS CORPUS:    

Has a friend or loved one been incarcerated with a high bond set?  
Contact us to 
determine whether or not he or she is entitled to a lower bond.

TRIAL CASES:

If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, we are ready, willing and able to assist in your defense.  
Our representation includes filing all necessary motions, negotiating with the prosecutor,
and preparing your case for trial.

DIRECT APPEALS:

If a family member or loved one has been convicted of a crime,
he or she may still be able to appeal his or her case.  Our office will review the record of the trial
 and draft an appeal brief challenging the conviction and sentence.  
This brief will then be filed at the Court of Appeals with jurisdiction over the case.  
If you are interested in appealing a conviction or sentence, it is important that you contact an Appellate Attorney as soon as possible because there are deadlines that must be met in order to file an appeal.

WRITS OF HABEAS CORPUS:

If a family member or loved one is currently confined in prison,
 he or she may still file an Application for Writ of Habeas Corpus challenging his confinement as illegal.
  This area of the law is quite complex, but is a remedy available to those defendants who may have received ineffective assistance of counsel or suffered other constitutional violations.  

Contact us to discuss any or all of the remedies available to you or your loved one.
