Fighting For Your Post-Conviction Relief Rights
If you are a defendant in a criminal trial and feel that you have been wrongly convicted of a crime, you are not alone. Decker Bradburn, Attorneys at Law, advocates for post-conviction relief for persons who feel that their harsh sentences are due to a problem with their defense, including the ineffective assistance of their legal counsel.
Pennsylvania’s Post-Conviction Relief Act (PCRA)
Did your legal team not take action in your best interests when they should have? Is there newly discovered evidence that can exonerate you? Thanks to the PCRA, individuals convicted of crimes can file an appeal based on:
- Prosecutorial misconduct
- New evidence
- Ineffective assistance of counsel
- A violation of state or federal constitutional rights
- Unlawful prompting of a guilty plea
- Illegal sentencing
The most prevalent appeal type is a relief for judgment due to ineffective legal counsel. During the appeals process, our attorneys explain the merit of your appeal and that your legal counsel’s strategy was not in your best interests, effectively prejudicing the court against you.
