Michigan Criminal Post-Conviction Motions

If you need a lawyer to pursue a post-trial motion in Grand Rapids, contact Grabel & Associates right away. In rare cases, it may be possible to get a new trial, for example if you discover new evidence that could change your results, or if you were subject to jury or judge bias. Other problems with your initial trial could make it possible to obtain a new trial, or pursue another motion, such as a motion for Ginther hearing. A Ginther hearing based on ineffective counsel is granted when your attorney during initial court proceedings did not effectively represent you. Our attorneys will help you determine exactly what motions are available to you and will represent you throughout the post-trial process so that you know you have met all deadlines and requirements, and that you are set up for success in your legal battle. Our Michigan firm understands the stress you and your family face when a loved one is convicted and will begin working immediately to fight for a beneficial case result.

Criminal Appeals Lawyer in Grand Rapids

If you have been wrongly convicted or unjustly sentenced in Michigan, an appeal may be possible. Rather than pursuing a criminal post-conviction motion, filing an appeal allows you to challenge either the verdict or sentence that has been decided upon by the court. While it is very difficult to win an appeal, in some cases it is the best way to improve your result, and could even help you obtain a lesser sentence or reversed decision.
