Postconviction Representation in Georgia

Georgia defense attorney Michael Kennedy McIntyre opened the law firm of Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates to offer expert legal counsel in the area of postconviction law. For more than three decades, Mr. McIntyre and his associates in Atlanta have represented clients who are currently incarcerated and trying to regain their freedom and those that are still suffering from the repercussions of a prior conviction. There are a number of postconviction options available in the State of Georgia and a majority of those options have deadlines associated with them. Some postconviction options can only be filed one time. Each postconviction case is unique and requires a thorough review of the record to determine the best course of action before pursuing a particular postconviction remedy. McIntyre & Associates is available to represent a client at any stage of their postconviction case and will advise the client on any postconviction deadlines in their case.

McIntyre & Associates - Parole Representation For Georgia Clients

Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates has a results-driven reputation in Atlanta for providing postconviction representation to people who have been convicted of a felony in the State of Georgia. Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates handles diverse pardon and parole cases, with an emphasis on the reality that each case has very different dimensions and results.

One client represented by the firm had been involved in a DUI vehicular homicide case and received a seven-year custodial sentence. Following the attorney-guided initial parole consideration, he was released after serving less than half of the sentence. 

Another parole case involved a client who had received a two-year aggravated battery sentence. With the client wishing to achieve release and deportation to his country of origin, parole was secured after 12 months. This was followed by three months of custody with United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement prior to the sought-after deportation. 

The law practice has also achieved successful parole results in drug-related cases involving issues such as possession of methamphetamines and possession of heroin with intent to distribute.
