Our Post-Conviction Lawyer Knows How to Win Post-Conviction Cases in Chicago and Throughout Illinois.
Post-conviction petitions are complicated legal documents that seek to show that a criminal conviction was the result of a substantial constitutional deprivation. Post-conviction petitions are even more complicated if they are a successive post-conviction petition which requires a showing of cause and prejudice before a successive post-conviction petition can even be filed.
Because of the added difficulties with successive post-conviction petitions, it is important that the initial post-conviction is handled properly and all post-convictions issues are raised. The courts dislike nothing more than piecemeal arguments. Every Post-Conviction has its own timeline depending upon the complexity of the case.
