Habeas

Colorado Habeas Corpus Law Firm

Experienced lawyers representing clients for writ of habeas corpus petitions in Colorado

The steadfast determination coupled with the extensive legal background and writing skills of the attorneys at Polansky Law Firm have convinced many judges to reverse or dismiss serious felony convictions in the courts throughout the state of Colorado. The state cannot take you into custody without following certain procedures. When those rules are violated, our attorneys will fight for your rights.

What it means to be in custody

If you or someone you know has been convicted of Colorado state or federal crime and is in custody (in jail or prison, or on probation or parole), a petition for writ of habeas corpus is a civil proceeding used to challenge the judge’s decision that led to the criminal conviction. Petitions can only be filed on behalf of someone who is currently in custody. This is not the same as regular criminal defense.

A writ of habeas corpus protects an individual from having his or her freedom lawlessly taken away. The habeas corpus writ serves to examine Colorado state court actions toward the defendant and ensure they are consistent with your federal constitutional rights.

Act now

When we prepare your writ or appeal, we first listen carefully to your concerns. Then we examine in detail the entire record of your case so we’re able to raise every issue that should be presented to the appropriate reviewing court. Our attorneys may raise issues such as an illegal search or a conviction under an unconstitutional law. Habeas corpus petitions must be filed in a timely manner or they will be “time barred,” and the court will not review your petition for relief.
