Post Conviction Relief

Our knowledge and experience in the area of criminal defense allows for a thorough representation of clients whose past criminal history may be a barrier for either obtaining or maintaining their lawful immigration status in the United States.

Definition

Post-conviction relief is a general term related to appeals of criminal convictions, which may include release, new trial, modification of sentence, and such other relief as may be proper and just. The court may also make supplementary orders to the relief granted, concerning such matters as rearraignment, retrial, custody and release on security.

Extract

The term may refer to a law or court rule that allows a collateral challenge to a judgment of conviction which has otherwise become final in the normal appellate review process. Post-conviction relief is governed by federal and state laws, which vary by state, and may be used to preclude state or federal habeas corpus.
