When a person is convicted of a serious criminal offense, the path forward can be difficult to make out and to navigate. Procedural and substantive hurdles abound but Casey Stamm has been successfully litigating criminal cases post-conviction for over two decades turning cases that had initially been lost into victories for her clients. Immediately following conviction, a direct appeal, personal restraint petition or habeas corpus petition may be effective in securing release from custody and reversal of conviction. Even if those avenues have been unsuccessful, relief may still be available via a petition for resentencing pursuant to recently enacted SB 6164 or SSB 5867, or a clemency or pardon application.

Casey Stamm has the skill and experience to help convicted persons successfully navigate the labyrinth of available post-conviction options to maximize the chances of obtaining a positive outcome at even a very late stage in the litigation. Casey is experienced and equipped to reevaluate a case after conviction and find issues or evidence that others may have missed or overlooked.

Contact Casey for help with criminal cases after conviction on direct appeal and thereafter in personal restraint, habeas corpus, SB 6141, or clemency/pardon petitions.
