A Guilty Verdict Is Not the End of the Story

If you have heard those weighty words, “We find the defendant guilty,” your heart probably dropped to your stomach. You likely wondered what your future held, and perhaps you feared years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. The good news is that a guilty verdict is not the end of your story. There are legal defense measures that a skilled Daly City criminal defense attorney can pursue even if the court has convicted you.

Some examples of post-conviction actions include:

  • An appeal
  • A state or federal level writ, such as Habeas Corpus
  • A special petition for a capital case
  • A request for a retrial or modification of the sentence

During a trial, there are often procedural and legal errors made that provide grounds for an appeal. At Buenaventura Law Firm, our board-certified criminal defense lawyer in Bay Area can review every aspect of the case and quickly file an appeal if it is warranted. Swift action can make all the difference.

Time is of the essence when you need post-conviction relief. Don’t wait—call us at (650) 727-6508 right away.
