Federal Habeus Corpus
Our Appeals Lawyers also handle federal cases as well. Attorney Pat Andreoni also does federal habeas corpus (28 U.S.C. 2255 and 2254) which is federal review of criminal convictions where the defendant has lost in his state appeals. All state remedies must be exhausted, e.g. that all issues were raised in state Supreme Court. Under AEDPA, such Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus must be filed within one year of denial of Petition for Review or time in which Pet. for Certiorari could be filed, adding an additional 90 days.
Federal habeas corpus is raised in the Federal District Court for the region of conviction. If defendant's claim for habeas relief is denied in federal district court, a Certificate of Appealability is required in order to appeal this decision in the 9th Circuit.
