Were You Wrongfully Convicted Of A Crime?
When an individual is convicted of a crime he or she did not commit, they can be wrongfully sentenced to immediate incarceration, years away from family and loved ones, the revocation of day-to-day freedoms and privileges, as well as the heartbreaking reality that life will never be the same again. To help ensure that injustices do not occur the justice system allows for an individual to appeal an unfavorable decision so as to find and correct any legal errors that were made during the course of the case which may have affected its outcome.
If you feel your conviction came about due to legal errors, or you feel that your constitutional rights were denied at any point during your case, you need to obtain legal counsel at once. Your lawyer can evaluate your case to determine if you have grounds to file an appeal. Click here to read our Appeals page.
