Representative Cases

Federal and State Cases

Some of the criminal cases, which have been successfully handled by the attorneys at Green & Willstatter, are described below. Please be aware that prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

We have won appeals for many clients facing long prison terms. Some examples of successful appeals include:

  • An innocent man who was freed after serving time in state prison for a sex offense he did not commit;
  • A man convicted of drug offenses whose prison sentence was substantially reduced, after we persuaded a Federal appellate court that the original sentence was illegally imposed; and
  • A client serving eight years for rape who was freed, after we convinced an appellate court in upstate New York that he did not receive a fair trial.

Our post-conviction work also includes motions brought before trial courts seeking to overturn convictions based on newly discovered evidence and other grounds. Our services are also sought by resident aliens who have lived and worked in this country for many years. As a result of tougher immigration laws, many aliens face deportation because of criminal convictions that occurred years in the past and which are now coming back to haunt them. We can apply our experience and our knowledge of criminal procedure to examine the records of those old convictions and develop arguments for overturning them.
