Post-Conviction Relief

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 & WaldropAttorneys 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 78 years of combined 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.

Consult with a St. Augustine Post-Conviction Relief Lawyer

If you suspect that your original trial attorney was ineffective, your eye witnesses tainted, or your jury biased or if you are wondering how to clean up a criminal record obtained before you were 18 years old, we urge you to consult with one of our attorneys to find out what post-conviction legal remedies may be available to you.

  • It was like I knew him for years. I left that consultation knowing I was with the right attorney.

    “When I first contacted Mr. Taylor, I was about 8 1/2 years into a legal battle with my former wife. The divorce was final in 2013 but my former wife continued to push for more with court appearances and appeals. At my consultation, Mr. Taylor was already as well prepared as I could have hoped for. I honestly felt more at peace about things than I had in years. When we first started talking, I felt he was wanting to get to know me which I believed was very important to him. When we started talking about the case, he shared his thoughts about the history as he saw it, explained what his approach was going to be, and asked me if I was OK with how he wanted to proceed. I appreciated how much time he obviously spent preparing for my consultation and how he wanted to be sure I was comfortable, and confident, in how he wanted to handle the case. The whole time, I never felt I was talking to an attorney and that it was business only. It was like I knew him for years. I left that consultation knowing I was with the right attorney. Within a year, it was over. The only reason it took that long was the time the court took but I was confident it would end once he submitted our response. Mr. Taylor is a great, knowledgeable attorney, that cares about one thing, and that is his clients. Very personable man that made me feel at ease, always communicating everything in ways I could understand and always asking my input. Everything about my experience was awesome, I can never say thanks enough for what this firm did for me. I can't leave out Jess Hardy. She's a great part of this law firm.”
