Our attorneys have extensive experience in the appellate process. If a person has been convicted of an indictable crime in district court, he or she has 30 days from the date of conviction to file a notice of appeal to ask the Iowa Court of Appeals and the Iowa Supreme Court to review the conviction. The appeal process includes multiple procedural requirements and must be handled by an experience appellate attorney. McKelvie Law Office handles both Iowa State and Federal criminal appeals from the notice of appeal through procedendo.
Wrongful convictions and constitutional violations are a terrible fact in the judicial process. Our attorneys are experienced in handling State applications for postconviction relief under Iowa Code Chapter 822 through the postconviction relief trial, including claims of actual innocence. We also handle federal applications for post-conviction relief and writs of habeas corpus for federal and state prisoners in the federal system under the United States Code.
