    Yes, it sounds like you will need help writing your opening brief. I agree with the above answers to this question. You should contact an experienced appellate attorney as soon as possible for legal advice and help in drafting/filing your opening brief.

  • How much an appeal lawyer cost for murder conviction

    sentence was 80 to life.. can the conviction could be overturn for lesser sentence?

    Eloy’s Answer

    I agree with some of the answers to this question. The fee for a private appellate attorney depends whether the case is being billed on a flat fee or hourly basis, and the length of the record. Hourly rates largely depend on the appellate attorney's experience & background in handling the specific type of criminal appeal. The length of the record will depend on how many days/weeks/months the jury trial lasted. Hope this helps. -Eloy Trujillo,

    i'm looking for proper representation pro bono pertaining to p.c.290 please, the ca appellate court states i'm within criteria, thankyou for reading and my e-mail is and my name is ricky hayward convicted out of ventura...

    Eloy’s Answer

    You need to file what's called a post-judgment "Hofsheier motion" in the local court in which you were convicted and ordered to register under PC 290. Most private lawyers will not be able to represent you on a pro-bono (free) basis. You might want to try the public defender in Ventura County or the local bar association to find out if they have a "modest means" criminal defense referral panel. Attorneys who take "modest means" referrals offer significantly reduced rates.

    Please understand that this is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer and does not create an attorney/client relationship. It's impossible to give detailed, accurate advice based on a few sentences on a website (and you shouldn't provide too much specific information about your legal matter on a public forum like this, anyway). You should always seek advice from an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction who can give you an informed opinion after reviewing all of the relevant information.
