Appellate Litigation

No matter how vigorously and competently your trial attorney presented your case, juries convict those on trial for criminal offenses more often than they acquit them. If you were convicted and sentenced, you have a right to appeal to a higher court for review of your case. There are deadlines you must meet and your Notice of Appeal must generally be filed with the court within a few days of your sentencing. Brentford Ferreira, owner of the Law Office of Brentford Ferreira, has 30 years of experience in post-conviction litigation.

Expungements

Want to clean up your record? Turn to the Law Office of Brentford Ferreira for help with expungement of records. Expungement entails going to court to ask a judge to seal the court record. Once the case is sealed, all records of an arrest and court case are removed from the public record. The records are no longer available through state or federal repositories. Individuals may fail to acknowledge being charged with the expunged crime record and even legally deny ever being arrested.

Habeas Corpus Litigation

A Writ of Habeas Corpus is provided for in the U.S. Constitution. It is a legal procedure that allows people who are in government custody to petition the court for release, claiming they are being held illegally. It is a civil process and essentially means, “bring the body to the courthouse.” When the petition is filed, the court is then required to determine if the government is legally holding the person in custody. Whether you seek relief from your criminal conviction or from an immigration detention or deportation order, Attorney Ferreria will review the facts of your case and help you decide how to proceed.
