Appeals & Habeas Corpus Lawyer
Appeals and Habeas Corpus Lawyer for Metro and Northwest Houston
There are a number of ways to explore the overturning of a conviction of a crime in Texas with the two main options: an appeal and a writ of habeas corpus. Each is a part of the appellate or appeals process, but there are striking differences between the two.
Appeals of a case are generally used when procedural or other legal errors have happened in a case. New evidence may not be used in the appeal. Meanwhile, habeas corpus is used to allow new evidence to be brought up before the appeals court. For a writ of habeas corpus, a defendant must present proof that a legal error caused the defendant to lose his or her rights.
The differences between an appeal and habeas corpus are vitally important to overturning a conviction and requires an expert appeals and habeas corpus lawyer to know the most-effective way to proceed.
