Wilmington Criminal Appeals & Post-Conviction Relief Lawyer
I am Michael W. Modica, Attorney at Law. For more than 30 years, I have been helping people throughout Delaware appeal their unjust criminal convictions in the appellate court and in front of the Delaware Supreme Court.
Experienced Criminal Appeals Attorney Fighting To Reduce Sentences And Drop Charges
Sometimes juries and judges get it wrong. When they do the criminal appeals system gives the wrongfully convicted a second chance at a fair outcome. If you have been wrongfully convicted of a crime or given an unfair jail sentence, you can appeal the verdict.
There is only a short 30-day window during which to appeal a conviction — you must act fast. If I was not your original trial attorney, I will thoroughly examine your case, your trial and the possible errors upon which I can base your appeal.
If you think your trial was not fair, you need an experienced Wilmington criminal appeals & post-conviction relief lawyer who will evaluate your case and create an appeals strategy to protect your rights.
Delaware Post-Conviction Relief Lawyer
Appellate courts vary drastically from trial courts, and many trial attorneys are not equipped to handle appeals. I, Michael Modica, have more than 30 years of experience litigating in both trial courts and appellate courts. I have the experience to successfully practice in both venues.
I represent criminal defendants in all stages of the appeals process. Whether I was your attorney during your criminal trial, or you are coming to me during the appeal process, I can help you effectively appeal your conviction to reduce your sentence or get the charges dismissed.
I also represent clients who are appealing on the basis of ineffective assistance of trial counsel. These clients come to me when they feel their trial lawyer made serious mistakes — such as lack of preparation or not making proper objections — that caused them to lose their case.
If you lost your trial and want to appeal the results, you need an experienced Wilmington criminal appeals & post-conviction relief lawyer on your side. Contact me today for a free initial consultation at 302-600-1262, or toll free at 888-672-0082.
