When a person is convicted of a crime, they may file for Post-Conviction Relief under Rule 32 or Rule 33 of the Arizona Rules of Criminal Procedure. However, there are strict guidelines that dictate when a petition may be filed (timeliness), and the types of claims that are available to defendants.
The Post-Conviction Relief process can be complex and time consuming, especially a conviction is years, or decades, old. However, there are avenues for relief, including being afforded a new trial or an evidentiary hearing.
Additionally, if you are seeking compassionate release or clemency, call our experienced attorneys so we can determine whether you may be eligible.
Our attorneys are passionate about helping those who are enmeshed in the legal system, and will do the hard work to investigate your case and file the strongest possible argument that you should have your conviction overturned.
