What Is Post-Conviction Relief?

Post-conviction claims are typically granted to individuals who can show that they were provided ineffective legal counsel throughout the course of their case. Upon the completion of the first trial and subsequent conviction, individuals can request to work with a different attorney to gain a retrial or obtain an appeal to the conviction.

You may be entitled to a retrial, appeal, or post-conviction relief if you feel that you:

  • Did not obtain adequate representation during your trial
  • You would like to have a re-sentencing due to ineffective counsel
  • Your original counsel will not undertake an appeal

When you choose to work with Figueroa-Contreras Law Group, we will take all evidence of your trial and investigate all claims. We will file the necessary paperwork to begin a retrial if appropriate, or work to gain an appeal. Our knowledge of the federal legal system can work to your advantage, and we encourage you to contact our office right away.
