Federal Appeals Often Involve Difficult Issues

Many of our relationships with clients begin when a person who has been convicted contacted us and raised issues that the trial court or defense counsel missed. As an experienced federal appeals lawyer, I am not afraid to face difficult issues such as ineffective assistance of counsel and prosecutorial misconduct.

Please contact The Ratliff Legal Group at 251-438-2250 for a case evaluation. We offer payment plans and accept credit cards.


Our Approach to Federal Appeals & post-conviction cases

When you become a client at The Ratliff Legal Group, the first thing we will do is analyze your case and your court record to determine the issues you face. We will do everything in our power to ensure that your record is prepared for the court of appeals and argue those issues before the court.

If your appeal is denied, you may choose to will file a writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court. In addition, there are other options we can pursue if your appeal is denied.

Throughout the appeal process, we will assist you with the paperwork involved and make educating you a priority. If you are knowledgeable about the law and the court system, you will be able to make informed decisions about how to proceed in your case.
