Post-Conviction Representation

At the law office of Phillip A. Linder, we provide post-conviction representation to people throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Whether we worked with you during your initial case or you worked with a lawyer from another law firm, you can benefit from our 20-plus years of experience handling these complex criminal law issues.

Accused Of A Probation Violation?

Being on probation comes with many requirements. Failure to meet even one of the requirements could result in fines, incarceration or extended probation. Common probation violations that we defend against include:

  • Missed court dates
  • Missed meetings with probation officers
  • Failure to attend counseling
  • Failure to pay fines or restitution
  • Not passing a drug test

If you are accused of committing a crime while on probation, you will not only face another criminal charge, but a probation violation as well. We can help you fight both.

Expungement

Expungement refers to removing arrests or convictions from your criminal record. In Texas, arrests that did not lead to a conviction as well as convictions for certain low-level misdemeanors may be expunged from your record. There are also other options available that work similarly to expungement, including an order of nondisclosure. We will review your arrests and convictions to determine the options available for clearing your criminal record.

Appeals

The appeals process is substantially different than the initial trial and requires specialized knowledge. We have the experience to handle all kinds of criminal appeals. We will review your case to determine whether there are grounds for an appeal. An unsatisfactory outcome is not sufficient to merit an appeal. There must be evidence of an error during the trial, such as failure to admit some piece of evidence. The error may have been made by your previous attorney, the judge, or potentially another party involved in the trial. If you believe that there are grounds for an appeal, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
