If you or someone in your family needs effective appellate representation to seek the reversal of a criminal conviction, correct a mistake in sentencing, or pursue postconviction remedies through either the Michigan petition process or in federal court on a habeas corpus claim, contact the Michigan criminal appeals attorneys at the State Street Law for a free consultation about your alternatives.

Immediately after the trial, we can examine your case to see whether any grounds for postconviction relief might be available in your case, whether through motions to the trial court or under the Michigan statute governing collateral attacks on state convictions.

On direct appeal following conviction, we make a thorough analysis of the record of your trial from the charging documents through jury selection and the presentation of evidence in order to identify the legal errors committed by the trial judge or anyone else. We also analyze the performance of your trial attorney to see whether any claim of ineffective assistance of counsel might be developed and presented on appeal. Our goal with respect to any issue we raise on appeal is not only to show specifically that a particular error occurred, but how it undermined the fairness of the trial and prejudiced your defense.

We handle criminal appeals in both state and federal court in cases ranging from DUI to first-degree murder. Our lawyers also make a careful analysis of sentencing decisions to see whether any mistakes should result in a reduction of the penalties imposed or an order for a new sentencing hearing.

Additionally, our lawyers represent persons convicted of Michigan offenses whose appeals have been exhausted, but who can still apply for postconviction relief under federal habeas corpus law.

Our familiarity with Michigan and federal appellate procedure and years of practice in the appellate courts allow us to deliver thoroughly researched and persuasively presented briefs that bring your strongest claims into sharp focus.
