Post Conviction Relief

July 2020

Our client, who was a 17 year old boy, came to us after using another attorney for his trial on first degree attempted murder charges. At that trial, with the other attorney by his side, our client was convicted of all charges and sentenced to 55 years in prison.  After losing his appeal with yet another attorney, our client found our law firm .
