APPEALS & WRITS

Our experience in appellate matters ranges from cases before the State of Texas Court of Appeals to those before the Supreme Court of the United States.

We handle both civil and criminal appeals and we have been involved in obtaining appellate victories where the stakes have included civil disputes, the liberty of an individual, the ongoing operation of a corporation, and the constitutionality of an important law.

We may be asked to work with trial counsel or co-counsel with another firm on an appeal.  Or we may be asked to handle an appeal on our own.  We are fine with either approach.

Often, clients that have experienced an unfavorable result in a trial court will seek advice and new representation at the post-trial motion stage and we are prepared to wade into a matter at that point as well.  Often it is most useful to engage us then as it can provide an opportunity to shape issues that may be important to an appeal.

WE HANDLE BOTH CIVIL AND CRIMINAL APPEALS IN STATE AND FEDERAL COURT

State and Federal Writs of Habeas Corpus

Pursuing an application for writ of habeas corpus, in most cases, is truly the last chance a convicted person has. It is crucial to be represented by attorneys with the necessary skill and experience to navigate this complicated area of the law. The Kingsbury Law Firm is very experienced in finding valid issues to attack a conviction, such as ineffective assistance of counsel or situations involving actual innocence. Identifying an appropriate issue to raise in an Article 11.07 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, 28 U.S.C. § 2254, or 28 U.S.C. § 2255 petition is no guarantee of success. Even prisoners who have good issues must often overcome numerous obstacles before a court will even address them.

We are very versed in pursuing second or successive § 2255 petitions and how to get in court on retroactive issues. Sometimes, a petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 or a motion under 18 U.S.C. § 3582 is the proper course of action. Contact us today to seek relief.


Supreme Court

Mr. Kingsbury is a member of the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States and has presented many cases for review. Everything from selecting which issue to present, how to present the issue, the typography in the brief, to what time period in the Supreme Court term to submit the petition is scrutinized at the Kingsbury Law Firm. 6,289 petitions were filed with the Supreme Court in the year 2016 and only 75, or 1.2%, were granted review.1

Let us present your best chance for relief!
