My practice focuses on the representation of incarcerated prisoners in every appropriate forum, and at every available stage of appeal, including certiorari proceedings in the U.S. Supreme Court. 

 

Prisoners in each jurisdiction have a variety of potential litigation tools at their disposal, but the following are the primary remedies:

Illinois:

  • Direct appeal

  • Post Conviction Hearing Act (725 ILCS 5/122, et seq.)

  • Federal Habeas Corpus (28 U.S.C. Section 2254)

Pennsylvania:

  • Direct appeal

  • Post Conviction Relief Act (42 Pa.C.S. Section 9541, et seq.)

  • Federal Habeas Corpus (28 U.S.C. Section 2254)
