In the North Carolina court system, a post-conviction challenege to your conviction or sentence, whether after a jury trial or a guilty plea, involves filing a motion for appropriate relief (MAR). With this type of litigation we request for whatever relief you need. This can include a dismissal of all charges, a new trial, or a new sentencing hearing. However, litigating a motion for appropriate relief (MAR) is not easy. It requires a review of all previous pleadings and hearings, interviews of various witnesses, research into key legal issues, preparing affidavits and supporting documents, and coming up with a persuasive and convincing motion.
