It is important to move a case forward after a conviction has been affirmed on appeal. Although the Ohio Supreme Court does not accept all criminal appeals, appealing to it will exhaust state remedies to allow federal review of constitutional claims. The time limit to file a jurisdictional appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court is 45 days from the date of the appellate decision. I offer a free consultation for appeals to the Ohio Supreme Court from anywhere in Ohio. I am also licensed in the United States Southern District of Ohio, the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of the United States of America. I am available to practice in those courts as well. 28 U.S.C. Section 2254 allows for federal review of state prisoners cases. The review is limited, but is appropriate in some cases: State prisoners may have claims that arise from the US Constitution, a US Supreme Court case, federal law, or US treaty. There are procedural hurdles to overcome as well. The claims raised in the habeas petition must be the same claims raised in each level of Ohio appellate review. There are time limits as well. I am available to review prisoner cases to determine the best avenue to move forward. I am not accepting cases for a direct appeal to an appellate district court. My review begins after a conviction has been affirmed in any Ohio Appellate District Court.
