Post-Conviction Defense and Appeals

Post-Conviction Defense and Appeals


The criminal-justice system is far from perfect, and a conviction is not the end of the road.

If you’ve been convicted of a crime, you’re entitled to appeal your case to a higher court to address any legal error that deprived you of a fair trial or sentence.

And you should. Here are some early, important questions to ask.

  • Did the trial court admit evidence that it should have kept out, or did it keep out evidence that it should have admitted?
  • Did the court give the jury the wrong legal instructions, or did it refuse to give the right ones?
  • Did the prosecution commit misconduct in any way?
  • Was there a basic lack of evidence to support the verdict?
  • Did the court miscalculate your sentence or otherwise impose a wrong one?

At Think Defense, we’ve seen the justice system from all sides, and we know how to defend you. Mr. Dabiri is a former federal prosecutor who’s handled appeals for the government, and now he’s committed to bringing them on behalf of people.

But time is of the essence. Courts require you to exercise your rights to appeal within a certain period of time, and if you miss the deadline, you may forfeit those rights.

So call us today. We will aggressively review the record in your case and ferret out the mistakes that others might miss. We’ll make the case for you, and we’ll drive the point home.


In state or federal court, we can help you modify the terms of your probation, parole, or supervised release, and if possible, we can help you terminate your supervision early. Or, if you are in custody, we can help you improve the conditions of your confinement.

In state court, we can help you reduce your felony conviction to a misdemeanor, and we can petition to have your conviction dismissed outright.

Beyond that, we can help you obtain a certificate of rehabilitation, and if possible, we can get you relief from sex-offender registration.

So call us today. If you are paying a proverbial debt to society, we will work to improve your life as you do. If you’ve paid your debt already, we will defend your right to live free again and pursue happiness.


In every case, we’re always on our clients’ side, fighting for them, and in any appellate or post-conviction matter, we will continue to fight for you. Call us today.
