Chicago defendants who wish to file for habeas corpus should retain a post-conviction attorney to assist with the conviction petition and everything mentioned in the above steps. It cannot be stressed enough that missing your filing deadline will almost certainly result in your conviction petition being denied. Also, ineffective assistance of counsel is often claimed by defendants and seldom granted by a Judge. It is not enough to simply claim that your last lawyer failed to do their job; you must point to specific instances that are considered “ineffective” under the law and articulate an argument stating how those failures led to your conviction. Experienced counsel can help you in doing this.
I am a former prosecutor with the State Attorney’s Office and have been practicing law for over thirty years. I have extensive experience in handling post-conviction cases and I believe strongly in protecting the rights of the accused. I handle all matters in the office personally which means that your case will get the attention it deserves. Contact my Orland Park office today to speak with a Chicago post-conviction lawyer.
