Warning

If you intend to pursue post-conviction, there are important time restraints.

For immediate help, call Glenn R. Roderman at 954-764-6800


Post-conviction relief proceeding (often called a 3850 motion or 3.850 motion) is a criminal procedure whereby a convicted criminal can request that a conviction or sentence be corrected or vacated. This proceeding is designed as a partial substitute for habeas corpus, in which the Court reviews claims of a convicted offender that his/her constitutional rights were violated. Through a post-conviction relief proceeding, a criminal defendant may challenge collaterally a judgment of conviction which has otherwise become final in the normal appellate review process. The federal statute pertaining to this proceeding is 28 U.S.C. §2255, enacted by Congress in 1948. Many states have adopted similar statutes that encompass all constitutional challenges to the judgment of conviction, but some statutes limit the scope of the remedy and the timeliness with which a motion for relief must be made.

If you need a motion for post-conviction relief or a motion to withdraw or vacate a plea, be sure that Glenn Roderman is the experienced attorney at your side.

It is important to emphasize that I am very grateful for what you have done for me. I am very lucky to have met a person like yourself, not only are you a brilliant attorney you also kept my spirit up when the other attorney was condemning me.

Laura S.

After taking your advice and acting fast the end result was that the state did not even press charges. We realise having a seasoned, well-connected attorney as yourself is the only reason this charge was stopped dead in its tracks. We could not have dreamed of an outcome this amazing!
