Our Practice Areas
In law, post-conviction refers to the legal process which takes place after a trial results in conviction of the defendant. The defendant can challenge a conviction or sentence. Kura, Wilford & Schregardus Co., L.P.A. can assist you through different legal actions, known as filing an appeal or a federal habeas corpus proceeding.
Although an inmate does not have a right to have an attorney present during most Parole Board proceedings, the assistance, both before and after any hearing, of an experienced attorney who understands the system can be invaluable to the inmate and his/her family. Kura, Wilford & Schregardus Co., L.P.A. intersects the parole realm.
Among all post-conviction remedies, Executive Clemency is the most unique. Under the Ohio Constitution, the Governor of the State of Ohio has broad power to grant Executive Clemency. Kura, Wilford & Schregardus Co., L.P.A. can assist with Executive Clemency through: (1) commutation; and/or (2) pardon.
Kura & Wilford Co., L.P.A. was founded in November, 1996 by James P. Kura, Esq. and Barry W. Wilford, Esq. as a criminal defense law firm. Building upon many years of experience as criminal defense trial lawyers, Kura and Wilford worked together to develop a unique law practice—a practice that specializes in post-conviction remedies* for inmates within the Ohio prison population as well as traditional criminal defense services.
