“I chose this area of practice because it gives me the opportunity to help people and protect constitutional rights.”
If you have been convicted of a crime, timing is imperative. There are deadlines in appellate and post-conviction practice that the law refers to as “jurisdictional in nature,” meaning if you miss a filing deadline, your opportunity to appeal or file for post-conviction relief may be forever gone. If you lose your direct appeal, you have a very limited time in which you may file for post-conviction relief under Pennsylvania’s Post Conviction Relief Act or federal habeas statute. Because these deadlines are the most unforgiving, getting Lloyd involved early is extremely important. To learn more, contact Krasner & Long, LLC today for a consultation.
