In that case, we have successfully blocked the plaintiff’s path to litigating the matter and have barred any and all claims—a ruling that is strongly in favor of our client. Mr. Barhoma was able to achieve this through strategic approach using the California Rules of Civil Procedure, Res Judicata (Claim preclusion) and principles of Summary Judgment.

Direct appeals are among the strongest and best legal maneuvers post-conviction. First, Barhoma Law looks to determine whether you filed your Notice of Appeal timely. Failure to timely file a notice of appeal will result in an automatic loss of your appeal. Then, Barhoma Law orders and prepares the record. From there, we extensively go through the record and draft and file your opening brief. The prosecutor will have an opportunity to file their response. Once Barhoma Law receives the prosecutor’s brief, we then extensively review it, draft and file a reply brief. And then we prepare for oral arguments in the court of appeals. This process takes skill and tedious attention to detail. You can seek many great arguments on appeal to overturn your conviction, including the ineffective assistance of counsel, actual innocence, jury tampering issues, prosecutorial misconduct, and many more described in detail here.California Criminal Appeals: Writ of Habeas Corpus
A Writ of Habeas Corpus is a Latin term which stands for “production of the body.” We represent defendants in bringing their Writ of Habeas Corpus if they are unjustly or wrongfully detained or incarcerated. This gives you a legal means to challenge the legal basis of your imprisonment, the duration and length of your imprison, or even the manner in which you are imprisoned.
We take full advantage of the fact that on Writ of Habeas Corpus, you are allowed to introduce new and additional evidence, which is among one of the most enticing items about the Writ of Habeas Corpus. With the ability to track down new evidence, new testimony, or even ineffective assistance of counsel argument, you can overturn your conviction using the Writ of Habeas Corpus. Consult with a Barhoma Law lawyer to determine your likelihood of success and whether you are eligible to bring a California or Federal Writ of Habeas Corpus.California Criminal Appeals: Reduce Your Sentence (SB 1437, AB 2942, 1170(d)(1), and Commutation of Sentence)
