A person convicted at trial of a crime in Arizona has 20 days after entry of conviction and sentence to file a Notice of Appeal. The most common legal grounds for successful appeals are based on errors of law made in pre-trial rulings or during trial itself. Prosecutorial misconduct provides another potentially successful argument on appeal.

The Younglove Law Firm has successfully handled Appeals for many clients, and is available to assist you or your family member as well.


To safeguard and process a Rule 32 Petition for Post Conviction Relief (PCR), a person must file a Notice of PCR within 90 days of sentencing.

Grounds to file a petition pursuant to Rule 32 include the following;

1. The conviction or sentence is in violation of the Constitution of the United States or the State of Arizona.

2. The Court was without jurisdiction to render judgment or impose sentence.

3. The sentence imposed exceeds the maximum allowed by law.

4. The person is held in custody after the sentence expired.

5. Newly discovered material facts probably exist and such facts probably would have changed the verdict or sentence.

6. The defendant failed to appeal and it was not the fault of the defendant.

7. There has been a significant change of law that if determined to apply to defendant’s case would probably overturn the defendant’s conviction or sentence.
