Writ of Habeas Corpus

Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus

A Writ of Habeas Corpus is a formal legal document which orders a detained person to be brought before the court to decide the legality of their incarceration. In these cases, you are able to challenge the legal basis for your detention, the duration of your imprisonment, and the conditions of your imprisonment. You may also request relief from unlawful confinement.

When you file a Writ of Habeas Corpus, you are requesting for a higher court to order the government agency to appear in court with you. If your petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus is approved, law enforcement will be required to prove that your detention is lawful and valid.

The Law Office of Salvatore P. Ciulla will find errors in which your rights were violated, argue California and Constitutional law on your behalf, and fight for your rights and potential release. You may be eligible for a sentence modification, a new trial, or even release. For assistance, please contact us today.
