Writ of Habeas Corpus Attorney in Riverside
California Writ of Habeas Corpus Lawyer
A writ of habeas corpus is a court order to a warden or jailer to bring a prisoner to court. An attorney files a petition for a writ of habeas corpus on behalf of his client in prison. The purpose of the writ is to challenge a conviction often for reasons that might not be evident in the court record. These might be ineffective assistance of counsel, undue pressure to plead guilty, jury misconduct, prosecutor misconduct, newly discovered evidence or use of false evidence in trial.
This procedure is intricate and many attorneys are unfamiliar with it. If you are considering a writ, you are urged to contact a Riverside appellate attorney accomplished in making these petitions.
