Serving St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, and St. Johns, Florida
Your criminal conviction is not necessarily the end of the line. Even if you have already lost one appeal, it doesn't mean that you are left without any further chance of obtaining post-conviction relief. We recommend that you contact a lawyer at the law offices of Taylor & Taylor to schedule a consultation in which you can discuss your options after a conviction has been issued in court and the case affirmed on appeal. Our firm has pursued post-conviction relief for defendants across North Florida, and our legal team has more than 40 years of experience in handling complex post-conviction cases throughout the Florida region. We represent clients in post-conviction criminal cases of all kinds, including death-penalty cases.
Types of Post-Conviction Relief
A St. Augustine post-conviction relief attorney at the firm can help you obtain relief by using such legal remedies as the following:
- Filing motions requesting a new trial;
- Motions to correct sentencing errors or credit for time-served;
- Filing petitions for federal writs of habeas corpus for clients who were convicted and imprisoned on the basis of involuntary guilty pleas, improperly obtained confessions, or ineffective assistance of counsel;
- Pursuing expungement, even years later; and
- Petitioning to remove sex registry requirements, restore driver's licenses, or modify parole terms.
Each type of remedy has specific deadlines, procedures, and requirements. A skilled criminal defense attorney, such as you will find at our firm, is an invaluable advocate after a criminal conviction has been handed down by the court.
