Post Conviction and Appeals

Post-Conviction and Appeals

Even after a conviction, you have the right to contest the decision in your case. You are entitled to appeal your case if you are found guilty of criminal charges. At the Law Offices of John Grason Turnbull III, P.C., we are experienced in handling various post-conviction matters on behalf of individuals charged with crimes. Whether you are seeking to appeal the decision or expunge your record, we can assist you in every post-conviction matter necessary to protect your rights and your record.

If you have been convicted, your case is NOT OVER. You have the right to appeal the decision in your case or attempt to get your record expunged. Contact us today for a free consultation.

  • Do you believe that a judge or jury made an error in your case?
  • Was there a mistake in the handling of evidence or the procedure of your case?

If you believe that your case was wrongly decided and you need an experienced advocate to appeal your case, contact an experienced post-conviction attorney. We handle both state and federal appeals.

We are experienced in handling all of the following:

  • Petition for post-conviction relief (appeals)
  • Writs of habeas corpus (unlawful detention)
  • Expungement and record sealing (for arrests or convictions)
  • Expungement in cases on “stet docket” (charges that are not being actively prosecuted and are in state of indefinite postponement)

Appeals Process

If you believe that there are grounds for appealing your case, our attorney can fully investigate the facts of the trial and aggressively pursue an appeal on your behalf. In any case, there may be a number of potential grounds for an appeal, including legal errors that could occur at any stage of your case. Legal error may include the failure to suppress illegally obtained evidence, the lack of evidence to support a verdict, a mistake in jury instruction, the misconduct of jury, or the error of your attorney.
