should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately to
better understand your legal options. Mr. Buckallew is a

Having a criminal conviction on your record can have a negative impact
on your future education and employment aspirations. Many professional
careers, housing applications, college financial aid applications, and
some professional licenses require a background check on potential candidates.
Employers, landlords, financial institutions, and other organizations
may be less likely to hire, rent to, lend to, or license an individual
with certain types of criminal convictions. No matter how insignificant
your offense may seem to you, a prior conviction may damage your reputation
and may seriously hinder your prospects and opportunities. An experienced
criminal defense lawyer will be able to discuss any legal options you
may have if you have been convicted.
Sometimes, the existence of a prior conviction can result in more significant
penalties if you are charged, and convicted, with a new criminal offense.
Normally, repeat offenders can face harsher punishments, including (but
not limited to) higher fines and longer jail or prison terms. If you have
previously been convicted of a criminal offense and would like to have
your case reviewed to see if filing a Petition for Post-Conviction Relief
is appropriate in your case, then contact our firm today to schedule an
Petition For Post-Conviction Relief - Tempe Criminal Appeals Attorney
A Petition for Post-Conviction Relief is a legal tool used to review the
validity of a conviction. In circumstances where your case was resolved
with a plea agreement, it may be the only method available to you for
reviewing your case. Generally speaking, most individuals who enter a
plea agreement will waive their right to appeal and thereby limit the
available remedies which they may seek in terms of appellate review. There
are various time limits imposed by rule and statute which operate to restrict
the availability for filing a Petition for Post-Conviction Relief. Under
some circumstances you must file your Petition for Post-Conviction Review
within 90 days of sentencing to preserve your rights for review. Thus,
if you are considering filing a Petition for Post-Conviction Review it
is important to act promptly.
