Post Conviction Motions Lawyer in Lansing, MI
There are numerous motions that can be filed in Michigan criminal cases, some of which may be available in your case. Our attorneys have extensive experience working in cases after the initial trial has ended, and understand that you need the best possible defense. It is never too late to begin working with a skilled attorney who can help you fight for a better outcome. Contact our firm now to discuss potential motions that could be filed in your case, as well as other post-conviction opportunities.
After a criminal conviction, it is possible to obtain a new trial in rare cases. In order to receive a completely new trial, you must have either new evidence that could change the outcome, or be able to prove that a new trial is in the interest of justice (for example, because the jury or judge was biased).
If you believe you lost your trial because you failed to hire a competent attorney, you may be able to secure a Ginther hearing based on ineffective counsel, which is not a new trial but a review of evidence based on the fact that legal counsel was not sufficient during the initial proceedings. Other motions include:
- Motion for Directed Verdict
- Motion to Change or Withdraw a Plea
- Writ of Habeas Corpus (2255 petition)
