Criminal Appeals, Post-Conviction & Prison Issues
In addition to a successful criminal defense trial practice for clients throughout South Florida, the United States, and internationally, Jeff Weiner has also developed – over his 50 years as a criminal defense attorney – a significant record of success in state and Federal appeals and post-conviction matters. Successful appeals must be approached very differently from how a defense is prepared and argued in the trial courts. Appeals are based on the record in the trial court, requiring an attorney to recognize errors committed by the prosecution, defense counsel, and trial judge during all phases of the proceedings, including pre-trial motions which were denied by the trial judge.
Post-Judgement & Prison Issues
In addition to our state, Federal and international trial and appellate practice, we also represent clients in a wide variety of post-conviction litigation and in representation involving in prison issues for clients who are serving time in custody as well as issues involving supervised release and probation.
Our Miami based lawyers are intimately familiar with custody/jail and prison issues including:
- Compassionate Release (primarily COVID-19 related)
- Medical issues including refusal or failure to provide necessary medication and adequate medical care (a very common and serious problem)
- Work release
- Parole in State courts
- Prisoner transfers to other jails, prisons, camps, and jurisdictions
- Religious freedom issues, including dietary issues, and observance of religious holidays and practices
- Supervised release violations
- Probation violations
- Halfway houses
Post-Conviction Litigation: Different from an appeal, this includes requests for a new trial resulting from ineffective assistance of trial counsel, denial of constitutional rights, and Writs of Habeas Corpus.
