Appeals & Post-Conviction Proceedings

Detroit Appeal & Post-Conviction Lawyers

Representing Clients in Wayne, Oakland & Macomb Counties, MI

A guilty verdict is not necessarily your last step in court. Direct appeals follow sentencing. A direct appeal generally provides an opportunity to have review of mistakes that occurred in proceedings in your case before or during trial or at sentencing. State court convictions are reviewed by the Michigan Court of Appeals. Federal convictions are reviewed by the United States Court of Appeals. 

Proper review of your case on appeal requires understanding of trial proceedings and the rules that apply on appeal. 

Review of your case after proceedings at trial can also include motions for relief from judgment in state court (motions for relief from judgement) or habeas corpus proceedings in federal court (§ 2254 following state court cases; and, § 2255 following federal court cases). 

At Gurewitz & Raben, PLC, our team of highly-skilled attorneys has extensive experience at both the trial court and the appellate court levels. We have not only done countless trials but also appeals in both state and federal courts. Our experience includes success in both court systems. This means that your appeal will be handled with diligence, precision and proficiency.
