If you have been convicted of a crime in Georgia, you may still be able to challenge your conviction and/or sentence through a petition for writ of habeas corpus. Habeas corpus proceedings in both state and federal court are governed by complex procedural rules, so it is essential that you have the assistance of an experienced advocate. For example, if you do not follow the applicable rules, you may lose the ability to bring some of your claims later.
The attorneys at Strickland Webster spent years working for federal judges who addressed these types of issues. Therefore, we have significant experience identifying which motion or petition to file to challenge your conviction and/or sentence, which claims to bring, and how to best support those claims with evidence.
The time period for challenging your conviction is limited, so you must act quickly.
The attorneys at Strickland Webster can help you file any of the following:
- 28 U.S.C. 2241 petition for writ of habeas corpus
- 28 U.S.C. 2254 petition for writ of habeas corpus
- Motion for a New Trial
