You are convicted at trial, your conviction is upheld on appeal, but you may still have one last option: post-conviction relief. Through this process, you have one year from the date of the last appeal to prove your lawyer did not adequately represent you.
Few attorneys will accept post-conviction relief cases. They would rather not risk compromising professional relationships with other lawyers by pursuing a post-conviction relief case. Fewer still ever win these “last ditch efforts.” However, The McAfee Law Firm has won many post-conviction relief cases.
Did your case end in conviction because your attorney failed to meet deadlines, failed to advise you to accept a plea bargain, or failed to provide adequate representation in some other way? We’d like to hear from you.
Post conviction relief cases are extremely difficult to win, but it can be done.
If your conviction was the result of incompetence by your attorney, please contact The McAfee Law Firm today for a free initial consultation and case evaluation.
