Stephen Aslett – Appeals Attorney

If you’ve been found guilty after a trial, your case isn’t necessarily over. You can appeal. A good appellate attorney is often the only difference between getting your conviction overturned and having a criminal record for the rest of your life. I can handle your appeal and ensure that you have the best chance of getting your conviction thrown out.

But don’t delay. The deadlines to file a notice of appeal are short, 90 days if your trial lawyer filed a motion for a new trial or just 30 days if he didn’t. If you’re thinking of appealing your case, it’s important that you call now. Because once those deadlines are gone, so is your right to appeal your case.

Stephen Aslett – Writs of Habeas Corpus Attorney

If your conviction was upheld on appeal, you never appealed your case, or even if you pled guilty, I may still be able to get your conviction overturned through something called a writ of habeas corpus. I’m one of only a few attorneys in the Houston area who practices in this complex area of law, and I’ve gotten years-old convictions overturned for clients who pled guilty in their cases.

There are many grounds for filing a writ of habeas corpus, but the most common is if you received ineffective assistance from your lawyer. If your lawyer didn’t investigate your case, gave you wrong legal advice, or misinformed you about the consequences of pleading guilty, you may be able to have your conviction overturned through a writ of habeas corpus. I can also file a writ of habeas corpus in your case if new evidence has come to light that can prove your innocence.

The only way to know for sure if you qualify for a writ of habeas corpus is to speak with an attorney, like myself, who is experienced in this complicated area of law.

When you hire me, I work directly on your case, bringing my years of criminal law experience to bear to try to get the best possible result for you. When you call my office for updates on your case, you speak to me. When you go to court, I will be the one standing by your side. I also limit the number the cases that I handle at any given time, so that I can given each and every one of my clients’ cases, including yours, the personal attention that it deserves.
