Writs of Habeas Corpus
- Do you have a loved one serving time in prison?
- Was the trial attorney competent?
- Is there new evidence the court should consider?
If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes” then a writ of habeas corpus might be the only way to seek relief.
A writ of habeas corpus (which literally means to “produce the body”) is a court order to a person or agency holding someone in prison to deliver the imprisoned person to the trial court and to show a valid reason for that person’s detention.
These procedures are complicated. You need a lawyer with experience and expertise to handle a writ.
