Criminal Defense in Arkansas is Bowman Lewis Law's Top Goal

Appeal Appellate Post-Conviction Services

In Arkansas there are many types of post-conviction remedies or appeal processes.  Each have different time requirements.  There is also a federal remedy for wrongful incarceration known as Habeas Corpus.  The process of charting a strategy is complex.   You must exhaust your State remedies and direct appeals before you can attempt a Habeas Corpus proceeding.  If you do not follow the proper order and many procedures, your case will have no chance to prevail.   Generally you want to seek an appeal as soon as possible.  Time can and will destroy many of your rights.  What your trial attorney does in the case impacts your rights, so choose this lawyer carefully.  Your trial attorney may or may not be an appeal attorney.  Typically the courts will allow you to select a different appeal attorney than your trial attorney.  The usual procedure involves the appellate attorney obtaining written permission from the trial attorney to assume the case.  The point is, since you have options, you should seek multiple opinions.

>At Bowman Lewis we have handled hundreds of cases in the trial courts, and we draw on this experience for appellate work.   We are committed to criminal defense and in the courts several days a week.  Please note we are selective in choosing to take an appeal.  It requires some work on our client's part, because we need information and records to be able to properly advise you of your rights.
