Criminal Defense Attorney
If a PCRA is granted and a new trial is ordered, the case starts over. It is in the defendant's best interest to have an experienced criminal defense attorney represent them. If you cannot afford a private attorney then apply for a public defender. Your lawyer will be in the best position to answer your questions and properly represent you at trial.
