Gray Richard Proctor

About me

My practice is focused on civil and criminal appeals and postconviction review.  Call now if you have been convicted and want to explore your options on direct appeal, a motion challenging a federal conviction (28 U.S.C. 2255), a motion challenging a Florida conviction (Rule 3.850 or Rule 9.141), a federal habeas petition (28 U.S.C. 2254 and 28 U.S.C. 2241), a writ of certiorari to the Supreme Court (Florida or United States), or some other challenge to your conviction or sentence.  


I also handle civil appeals in state and federal courts, including contingent fee recovery cases.  Attorneys and parties anticipating an appeal are invited to inquire about trial support services as well.
