Our Colorado post-conviction attorneys proudly carry on the tradition of habeas corpus for incarcerated clients all over Colorado district courts. One of the greatest hallmarks of a free society is the right to petition for writ of habeas corpus. To not have this right would be to be subject to imprisonment for any reason at any time. Fortunately, we have this great right and a conviction and incarceration may be able to be overturned. 

Habeas Motions in Colorado

A modern day version of habeas corpus, the 2255 Motion, is available for those clients convicted and incarcerated in Colorado courts. One important distinction is that in custody does not necessarily mean behind bars. We also handle appeals before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals for the United States.

A 2255 Motion may be rewarded with a retrial, a lesser sentence or with all charges dismissed completely. This motion is typically a last resort and filed after all other forms of appeal in Colorado have been exhausted. Our Colorado post-conviction criminal lawyers are well versed in this motion.

Petition for Habeas Corpus in Colorado

The Post Conviction Motion is used in cases where the client is in custody. Just as with the 2255 Motion, being in custody does not always mean being incarcerated.  We handle rule 35 petitions. There are situations where a client can be in custody but not be imprisoned. Those clients in custody have the right to file a writ of habeas corpus with the United States Supreme Court. Their incarceration must be a violation of constitutional rights, law, or treaties of the United States.
