Writ of Coram Nobis
Writ of Coram Nobis is an extraordinary measure that allows an individual convicted of a crime
to petition a Federal District Court for vacating a conviction that was
obtained in violation of his constitutional rights. Federal District Courts
have power to issue a
writ of error Coram Nobis. This allows the Court to vacate a judgment of conviction and sentence.
If you have any questions about a writ of coram nobis or another immigration
matter, do not hesitate to reach out to New Jersey immigration lawyer,
Simone Bertollini. To
request a case evaluation, please call (973) 814-4408.
The Process for Writ of Coram Nobis
A Writ of Coram Nobis is not a substitute for an appeal. Itmust be filed in the same Court that entered the conviction, when possible.
After the exhaustion of all other remedies, a petition for a Writ of Coram
Nobis can be filed in a Federal District Court.
It can be used to challenge ineffective assistance of counsel.
The Writ of Coram Nobis is often used when an individual has served his
sentence and has been released from custody, but he is prejudiced by serious
collateral consequences of the conviction. The most common collateral
consequence is deportation from the United States.
The Experience & Competence to Help You
immigration attorney in New Jersey, I have experience with all kind
deportation matters. I handled motions for
post-conviction relief, petitions for a
Writ of Habeas Corpus and petitions for a Writ of Coram Nobis. Also, I often advise criminal
lawyers of the immigration consequences of a guilty plea. Finally, I have
experience defending individuals charged with
Federal Immigration Crimes.
I am admitted to the New Jersey and New York Bars. I am also admitted to
the U.S. District Court for the Eastern, Southern, and Western District
of New York, as well as the District of New Jersey. I have
full academic qualifications in both Italy and the United States, and I went through the immigration
process personally: before becoming a Lawful Permanent Resident, I held
E-2 Treaty Investor status.
If you are subject to deportation proceedings because of a criminal conviction, please
