Post-conviction relief refers to appeals of criminal convictions, which may include release, new trial, modification of sentence and such other relief as ordered by the court. If you have been convicted of a crime, there is always a chance that a skilled appellate lawyer can help you get a verdict reversed through an appeal or other post-conviction relief. At Grace Tisdale & Clifton P.A., we are leaders in successfully handling appeals in state and federal courts. We are experienced in identifying and raising all issues that may be grounds for appeal and successfully arguing such issues before the proper tribunals.

Expungement May Be An Option
If your post-conviction case is unsuccessful, you will have a criminal conviction on your record. Removing that conviction from your record may be possible under certain circumstances. The likelihood of you getting an expungement varies depending on a number of factors such as the specific crime, how long ago the conviction was received and your criminal history since the time of the conviction.
