Representation After You've Been Convicted and Sentenced

Criminal law is an ongoing process which doesn't end at sentencing, as clients can challenge convictions, work on pardons, and protest the nature of their sentences.  After release, there are other factors to consider also, such as the "collateral consequences" which seeking counsel can help to mitigate. Due to the complex nature of the post-conviction realm, seeking counsel with a skilled defense attorney ensures strong post-conviction defense efforts.

Providing for a more comprehensive discovery and advocacy for those convicted, our law offices work on strategies to reduce collateral or invisible punishments. This includes ensuring your rap sheet is accurate, taking advantage of federal preemption where warranted, considering constitutional challenges, demanding reasonable accommodations for clients if they are disabled, being aware of unusual but helpful local statutory protections, pursuing restoration of rights or certificates of rehabilitation, and crafting an appealing narrative of redemption.
