How a Post-Conviction Lawyer Can Help
Seeking legal counsel is crucial after a conviction, as you may have options of which you are not aware. For example, if it is determined that your previous legal counsel was inadequate or ineffective in some way, you may have the opportunity to request a new trial through a motion for a Ginther Hearing. You may also have the option to withdraw a guilty plea and request a new trial.
A post-conviction attorney can help you with many issues, including:
- Expungement of criminal records
- Ginther Hearings as a result of inadequate counsel
- Motions related to the discovery of new evidence
- Motions to reduce a sentence
- Motions to vacate a conviction or sentence
- Requests for a new trial
- Withdrawal of a plea
A lot of people erroneously believe that after a conviction they no longer need a lawyer. Similarly, many people do not realize that they are allowed to hire new attorneys after a conviction. At Fraiberg & Pernie, we believe everyone deserves top-quality legal representation that is committed to their best interest. And, even if your case has already gone to trial and you’ve received a conviction, we are here for you.
We Also Handle Parole Violations in Oakland County
If you are on parole, there are many rules you must follow to maintain your freedom and to avoid going to prison. For example, if you are on probation in Oakland County, you may have firearm restrictions you must adhere to, or you may be required to attend an educational or rehabilitation program regularly. You might even have a mandatory curfew imposed on you. Because of the complicated nature of parole, violations are common, despite an individual's best efforts. If you are found to be in violation of your parole or probation, it is recommended that you work with an Oakland County parole violation lawyer.
At Fraiberg & Pernie, we believe in taking an aggressive yet compassionate approach to criminal defense. We know that mistakes happen, and our parole violation lawyers in Birmingham and Oak Park are dedicated to helping you navigate through the post-conviction process as smoothly as possible.
