A criminal conviction can come with serious consequences, including jail time, fines, loss of voting and hunting rights, lifetime registration requirements, higher insurance rates, and unemployment. At Smith & Smith, we understand that people make mistakes and we believe those mistakes should not, in every case, affect someone for the rest of their life.
We handle appeals of all types of convictions, including misdemeanors, DUIs, and felonies, to all courts with jurisdiction in Mississippi. We also have experience challenging convictions after the time to appeal has expired through state post-conviction proceedings and federal habeas corpus petitions. We have experience seeking pardons, moving for a reduction of sentence, early release, and transfer of incarceration and/or supervision to another facility or state. We also handle expungements of convictions, and reinstatement of hunting and/or voting rights lost due to a conviction.
Contact Smith & Smith today If you are a loved one is incarcerated and wants to discuss an appeal, if a conviction is hindering your ability to obtain employment, credit or housing; or if a conviction is preventing you from hunting or voting. We will make arrangements to visit a potential client in jail if necessary.
