Appeals and Post Conviction Relief in Farmington CT
There are times during a criminal trial where legal or procedural errors will occur, which are grounds for an appeal. It is critical for you to contact and retain an experienced appellate attorney in Farmington CT who is familiar with both the federal and state appeals process. Our criminal appeal attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience handling appeals in both civil (habeas) and criminal (direct) cases. We can review your case, and explain your options for post conviction relief. It’s important to know all available remedies as a criminal conviction is one of the most taxing events an individual could face in their lifetime.
Our post conviction relief and appellate lawyers can use two popular methods of challenging the outcome of a criminal proceeding by an appeal to a greater court or initiate a motion for post conviction relief in the court.
An appellate court will only review questions of law, which means you can only use an appeal to argue the trial judge made a legal mistake that resulted in your convictions. Post conviction relief, on the other hand, can address factual issues that led to your conviction or guilty plea. These may include the appearance of new evidence which was not available during the trial such as new DNA evidence, if a witness has changed his or her story, or prosecutorial misconduct.
A criminal conviction in Farmington does not mean the end, call our criminal defense law firm to speak to an appeals and post conviction relief attorney today.
