Tampa Criminal Appeals & Post-Conviction Lawyer

Legal error can come in many forms but very few can result in a new trial or the charges being dismissed. If you believe in any way that a judge, prosecutor, or defense lawyer made a legal error that had a harmful effect on the ultimate result of your case contact Nicholas G. Matassini, Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer by the Florida Bar and AV Rated by Martindale Hubbell.

In State and Federal Courts you must file your notice of appeal or post-conviction claim within specified time frames. A delay or error in filing the notice of appeal or motion for post-conviction relief on time can result in a denial of your claim without ever getting to argue the merits of the case. Our Tampa criminal appeal lawyers will begin by reviewing your every aspect of your case and claims of legal error. Then we will personally meet with the client and his family to discuss the potential for success, the appellate path forward, and payment options.

Nicholas G. Matassini recently had a sentence vacated and remanded in a Federal maritime drug trafficking case in USA v. Victor Otero-Pomares 15-13024. Matassini was called for oral argument before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and successfully argued, along with co-counsel for the other convicted sailors, that the 19-year prison sentence handed down to his client, a poor Colombian fisherman with no prior record and no local ties, should be vacated. Matassini insisted all along that the trial court committed significant legal errors at sentencing.

The experience you need in your pursuit of justice

The greatest distinguishing feature among attorneys is their level of experience. Our firm has more than 60 years of legal experience, much of it spent in the courtroom at trial. As a result, our Tampa personal injury lawyers rarely encounter an unfamiliar situation and can thoroughly answer your urgent questions. Our criminal defense practice features a board certified criminal trial lawyer and two former prosecutors with impressive knowledge of trial tactics and procedures.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
