If you have been wrongly convicted of a criminal offense, there still may be ways for you to obtain a better case result.

The most important thing you can do after you are convicted of a misdemeanor or felony offense is contact an experienced Muskegon post-conviction defense attorney.

Appealing a Case Outcome

After a criminal conviction, there are two ways you can appeal the decision. In some cases, you have the right to appeal for a limited time after the decision, in which case you can file an appeal by right without the permission of a higher court. In other cases, however, you will need to request permission from a higher court to appeal by leave. This applied in cases where a final judgment has not yet been entered, when the 21 day period to appeal by right has ended, when a legal issue and not a sentence is what is being appealed, and in other cases where an appeal by right is unavailable.

Grabel & Associates has experience assisting clients in filing appeals by right and appeals by application for leave, and we know what it takes to successfully appeal a case, which is next to impossible without an experienced attorney on your side. Contact our firm now and start fighting back against unjust conviction and sentencing.

Post-Conviction Motions and Writs Attorney

There are other post-conviction options available for those who are facing unjust verdicts or sentences in Michigan. You can file for a new trial, or a Ginther hearing based on ineffective legal counsel. You can also ask to remove the jury and have a judge directly issue a verdict through a motion for a directed verdict. If you want to withdraw or change or plea, you may be able to file a motion, especially if you have not yet been sentenced. Many other pre-sentencing and post-conviction motions and writs are also possible in a variety of different criminal cases.
