Applying for Post-Conviction Relief
There are various methods of seeking post-conviction relief after you have
been convicted of a criminal offense. These can include
appeals to request a new trial, having the sentence modified or even being released.
There also are ways to reduce the impact of a prior conviction through:
- Sealing and destruction of records
- Receiving of a pardon
- Certificate of rehabilitation
- Reduction of a felony to a misdemeanor
A conviction on your record can greatly affect your future. To find out
if there are any post-conviction relief methods available to you following
a conviction, contact a criminal defense attorney to discuss your case
and obtain skilled legal counsel. Post-conviction relief is governed by
state and federal laws, so retaining qualified legal counsel is imperative
in pursuing any of these avenues.
Looking To the Future
It is important to reduce the impact of a prior conviction on your future.
Even after serving a sentence for the crime, the conviction on your record

be situations you may face in the future. By contacting Martinian &
