Post-Conviction and Appellate Representation

Sometimes a client does not receive a favorable result because of trial court error. Ms. Hoffman and her skilled team of associate attorneys have significant experience challenging such errors in state and federal appellate courts. Successful resolution requires careful study of the trial court record, knowledge of the law, and an understanding of appellate procedure. The firm’s attorneys possess all of these crucial skills.

Additionally, some clients serve long terms of incarceration owing to failures of trial counsel or to other constitutional infirmities in the underlying criminal trial. The firm has brought collateral challenges to a criminal conviction based on constitutional errors. Often these cases require considerable investigation because they require conducting a “trial within a trial.” Janet Hoffman & Associates LLC has the expertise to bring these factually and legally complex challenges in both state and federal court.
