Post-conviction relief in Georgia can take several different forms. In some cases, a post-conviction relief attorney can assist you by attacking the pre-trial decisions by the trial court or by attacking errors made during the trial. An effort to challenge the validity of pre-trial rulings by the trial court, rulings made by the trial court, or ineffective assistance of claims against trial counsel typically takes the form of a motion for new trial or a direct appeal to the Georgia Court of Appeals or the Georgia Supreme Court.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF RELIEF IN GEORGIA
However, post-conviction relief in Georgia need not necessarily be confined strictly to legal challenges involving rulings by the trial court or ineffective assistance of trial counsel. Often times, post-conviction relief involves efforts to obtain earlier release from the sentence originally imposed. Typically, a post-conviction relief in Georgia involves a dynamic strategy consisting of both efforts to obtain a new trial and efforts to modify the sentence imposed. Frequently, we make an effort to leverage legal issues that may result in a new trial to obtain a modified sentence. The effort to obtain post-conviction relief in Georgia need not be an all-or-nothing proposition.
