Efficient Representation, Effective Results

If you or someone you love was convicted at trial, you have 30 days from the date of sentencing to file a direct appeal. Your case will be reviewed by the District Court to determine if you are entitled to a new trial, or if your conviction should be overturned entirely.

You may also be able to file an appeal if you believe your Fourth Amendment rights have been violated. If a law enforcement official unlawfully searches you or your property and finds a controlled substance, you can request that it be excluded from evidence. Drug convictions are often set aside due to unlawful search and seizure, and will therefore be overturned.

Winter Park Post-Conviction Relief Attorney (3.850 Motions)

Even if you have lost your direct appeal, you are entitled to a final appeal if there has been new evidence discovered that the court did not have a chance to hear, or because your trial lawyer was "ineffective." Through a motion for post-conviction relief, you can petition the court to overturn your conviction and request a new trial for a second chance at freedom. These are known as "3.850 Motions".

In our more than 35 years of criminal law experience, we have won criminal appeals, achieving new trials for Florida's wrongfully convicted citizens.
