You Can Take Action After a Conviction
The Law Firm of Frank Stanley, PC, has been recognized for its post-conviction practice and for its success in helping clients convicted of state or federal crimes seek post-conviction relief. The firm frequently represents clients in Michigan and nationwide who were first tried years earlier.
In one of many successes in post-conviction matters, the firm represented a client convicted of assault with intent to commit murder for shooting at a DNR officer with a high-powered rifle. The firm was retained prior to sentencing and was able to get the verdict set aside due to the ineffective assistance of the previous lawyer. The firm then negotiated an outcome that involved probation, which was successfully completed, and the client’s record was cleared and all charges were dropped.

Appeals and Post-Conviction Remedies
Appeals are the first step to overcoming a wrongful criminal conviction. However, appeals are not the only opportunities available post-conviction.
Once a direct appeal is complete, a post-conviction petition may be appropriate. If the prisoner loses the appeal, the next step is a habeas corpus petition in U.S. District Court. Attorney Frank Stanley and his legal team know their way through this procedural maze and will protect your rights.
The firm also handles other post-arrest and post-conviction matters, including expungement.
