Skilled Atlanta lawyer helps with post-conviction relief and appeals for clients in the Atlanta area
If you are convicted of a crime, there may still be legal help available, including guidance through the post-conviction process. Post-conviction assistance includes help with probation, motions for new trials, habeas corpus, parole and appeals. At The Law Office of Delisa Williams PC, as an experienced Atlanta Parole & Probation Lawyer, I help clients in the Atlanta area and throughout Georgia to understand their legal options for post-conviction, which is the conditional release from incarceration, and probation, which specifies the terms of their release and may help them avoid incarceration or serve a shorter sentence with continued supervision.
If an error was made during the course of your trial, you may have grounds for an appeal. There are time limits for filing an appeal, so it is best that you seek representation at The Law Office of Delisa Williams PC as soon as possible after a conviction, whether or not I represented you in your original trial. If you are successful with your appeal, your conviction may be overturned and you will obtain either a new trial or a release.
In probation, people convicted of crimes are placed on supervision in the community through a probation agency. Probation can take the form of deferred-adjudication probation or straight probation, also referred to as “community supervision.” This is an alternative to jail or prison time. Deferred-adjudication probation means that the charges will be dismissed upon the successful completion of your probation. Straight probation means you were found guilty. With either kind of probation, jail or prison time always remains a possibility if you violate the terms and conditions of your probation agreement.
Both types of probation may require several court-ordered conditions, and failure to comply with the terms of probation will likely land you in jail. It is best to consult an experienced lawyer if you have violated your terms of community supervision or probation and before admitting to any violations. You may have defenses and grounds to fight your probation revocation.
