Computer-Related Criminal Cases

Defense in Computer-Related Criminal Cases

David W. Farrell, Attorney at Law

Law enforcement agencies and criminal prosecutors take computer crimes cases very seriously, particularly those involving child pornography or solicitation of a minor.

Appeals & Post-Conviction Relief

How to Challenge a Criminal Conviction

David W. Farrell, Attorney at Law - Over 20 Years of Criminal Law Experience

A criminal case does not necessarily end after a conviction is issued. What if something was done improperly during the course of the case? What if the lawyer made a mistake? What if the judge made an error? What if your rights were violated along the way?

Any of these reasons could be grounds for appeals. At the law firm of David W. Farrell, Attorney at Law, we can help you appeal convictions for everything from domestic violence to drug charges, DUI to computer-related crimes. Appeals are difficult, complex and detail-oriented. Not every lawyer can effectively handle the appellate process. Attorney David W. Farrell has more than 20 years of criminal law experience serving clients in the Columbia area and throughout South Carolina, and he has in-depth knowledge of appeals and other post-conviction relied.

We encourage you to contact us to learn more about the appeals process and to determine if an appeal is a valid option for you.

Invaluable Appellate Experience

Appeals: The first option that should be considered to challenge a criminal conviction is the direct appeal. These are based on errors of law. We have the experience to find errors and then pursue an appeal.

Post-conviction relief: This is another option. This is a collateral attack on a conviction by questioning the effectiveness of your original trial lawyer in presenting the case. It can also be raised when new evidence comes to light that was not available or not disclosed during the initial proceedings.

We can also handle expungements and other post-conviction issues, such as pardons, probation and parole violations.

Expungements & Other Post-Conviction Issues

Clearing Your Criminal Record and Keeping it Clean

David W. Farrell, Attorney at Law

If you have been convicted of a crime, and you believe that the case was handled properly and there is no opportunity for an appeal or post-conviction relief, you still may have legal options available to minimize the consequences. For example, you might be able to clear your criminal record through expungement or by seeking a pardon. If you are on probation or parole, you still may need defense in the event of an alleged violation.

At the law firm of David W. Farrell, Attorney at Law, we can assist with these and more post-conviction matters. We can help you truly put your criminal case behind you in a manner that allows you to move forward with as little future impact as possible.

We encourage you to contact us to learn more about the opportunities that exist to clean up a criminal record in Columbia or throughout South Carolina.

Years of Experience Handling Post-Conviction Issues

When you choose our law firm, your case will be handled personally by Attorney Farrell. You will benefit from more than 20 years of experience in criminal law.

Expungements: The most commonly used method of clearing a criminal record is expungement (sometimes called expunction). When done effectively, it essentially resets your criminal record, removing evidence of the arrest and/or conviction. This option tends to be effective in domestic violence and other cases handled in magistrates' and municipal courts. In addition to convictions, expungement can clear arrest records.

Pardons: When an expungement is not an option, a governor's pardon may be. To apply, you need to have demonstrated good behavior for a minimum of five years after the conviction and must meet other conditions.

Parole and probation violations: In addition to handling expungements and pardons, we can defend people on parole or those accused of probation violations. Our goals are to keep you out of jail, keep you in good standing with the court and your probation officer, and keep the violation off your criminal record.

Free Initial Consultations
