The criminal process in Florida does not stop after you are convicted and sentenced. Rather you can obtain much needed relief through what is referred to as the criminal appeal process. Relief could mean an acquittal, a new trial, or a lesser sentence.
Multiple avenues can be pursued through the criminal appeal process. The avenues to relief include Florida state and federal criminal appeals, Florida state and federal post-conviction relief, and clemency. Our experience in each type of proceeding allows us to zealously advocate on your behalf.
