If you have been convicted of a federal crime, but your arrest, trial, or sentencing violated Federal law because your attorney was incompetent or ineffective, a motion to vacate your conviction may set you free. If you feel any part of the investigation or trial that led to your conviction was not handled correctly by your attorney, you owe it to yourself to reach out to an experienced lawyer who focuses on federal criminal law.
A habeas corpus petition is not a standard appeal – the facts of your case are not under review. Instead, habeas corpus entails review of the arrest, investigation, and trial procedure leading to a conviction. A habeas corpus hearing can end in overturning a conviction if it reveals things like jury tampering, an ineffective or incompetent defense, concealment of evidence by the prosecution, failure of trial participants to follow due process of law, or even a judge who acted with prejudice against a defendant.
