Our skilled defense attorneys will meticulously analyze the jury instructions proposed by the prosecution and work diligently to request instructions that are favorable to your defense.

Jury Deliberation

Once the evidence has been presented, the arguments made, and the jury instructions provided, the fate of your case lies in the hands of the jury. At Martinicchio Criminal Defense Group, we understand the significance of jury deliberation and its impact on the outcome of your trial. We have honed our strategies to maximize the chances of securing a favorable verdict during this crucial phase.

During jury deliberation, the jurors will carefully review the evidence, discuss the testimony and arguments presented, and strive to reach a unanimous decision. While we cannot directly participate in their deliberations, our defense team lays the groundwork for a successful outcome through our meticulous trial preparation and persuasive advocacy.

Throughout the trial, we aim to cultivate a strong rapport with the jurors, establishing credibility, trust, and empathy. By presenting a compelling defense, challenging the prosecution's case, and addressing any doubts or uncertainties, we strive to create an environment where reasonable doubt can flourish.

Our defense team remains vigilant during jury deliberation, ensuring that any questions or concerns raised by the jury are properly addressed.

The verdict is the pivotal moment in a trial where the jury's decision determines your fate. At Martinicchio Criminal Defense Group, we understand the gravity of this moment and are prepared to guide you through every step of the process. Our experienced defense attorneys work tirelessly to present a compelling defense, sow seeds of reasonable doubt, and advocate for your innocence or a favorable outcome.

While we cannot predict the outcome of the verdict, we are committed to ensuring that the jury carefully considers the evidence, weighs the arguments, and adheres to the principles of justice.

However, if the verdict is not in your favor, our dedicated defense team will continue to fight for your rights through every available avenue, such as post-trial motions or appeals.


If the verdict results in a conviction, the next phase of the process is sentencing. At Martinicchio Criminal Defense Group, we recognize the critical importance of presenting a strong defense during this stage to secure the most favorable outcome possible. Our experienced defense attorneys will tirelessly advocate for your rights and strive to minimize the potential penalties imposed.

During the sentencing phase, we will present compelling arguments and evidence to mitigate the severity of the punishment. We may highlight your positive attributes, demonstrate remorse, and present evidence of your good character. Additionally, we will explore any mitigating circumstances or factors that may warrant a reduced sentence.

Our defense team will collaborate with experts, such as psychologists or social workers, to provide comprehensive assessments and reports that shed light on your background, mental health, or potential for rehabilitation. These expert opinions can help sway the court to consider alternative sentencing options or reduce the severity of the penalties imposed.

Throughout the sentencing process, we will articulate the impact of excessive or unjust punishment on your life and emphasize the importance of balancing accountability with rehabilitation. Our goal is to secure a sentence that is fair, just, and proportionate to the circumstances of your case.

Post-Trial Motions

After the trial and verdict, our work at Martinicchio Criminal Defense Group does not end. In certain circumstances, we may pursue post-trial motions to seek further legal remedies on your behalf. Post-trial motions provide an opportunity to challenge the verdict or address any legal errors that may have occurred during the trial.

Our experienced defense attorneys will thoroughly review the trial proceedings, scrutinize the evidence, and assess the conduct of the trial to identify any grounds for post-trial motions. We may file motions for a new trial, arguing that errors or misconduct affected the fairness of the proceedings. Alternatively, we may file motions to set aside the verdict based on newly discovered evidence or legal errors that occurred during the trial.

During this critical phase, we will meticulously craft persuasive legal arguments, supported by case law and relevant statutes, to present a compelling case for why post-trial relief should be granted. Our goal is to ensure that your rights are protected and that justice is served.


In the event that the trial verdict is unfavorable, we are prepared to pursue an appeal on your behalf. Appeals provide an opportunity to challenge legal errors, constitutional violations, or other mistakes that may have occurred during the trial, potentially leading to a reversal of the conviction or a modification of the sentence.

At Martinicchio Criminal Defense Group, our skilled appellate attorneys will conduct a thorough review of the trial record, identify potential grounds for appeal, and build a compelling case to present to the higher court. We will meticulously analyze the trial proceedings, scrutinize the jury instructions, assess the admissibility of evidence, and review the application of the law.

With our deep understanding of appellate procedures and legal principles, we will craft persuasive appellate briefs, presenting strong legal arguments supported by relevant case law, statutes, and constitutional provisions. Our goal is to demonstrate that errors or misconduct occurred during the trial, resulting in an unfair or unjust outcome, and to secure a favorable ruling from the appellate court.

Throughout the appeals process, we will vigorously advocate for your rights, presenting compelling oral arguments in court and fighting for a just resolution. Our determination, legal acumen, and attention to detail position us to be effective advocates for your cause in the appellate arena.

Post-Conviction Relief

Even after a conviction and the exhaustion of direct appeals, there may still be avenues for seeking post-conviction relief. At Martinicchio Criminal Defense Group, we understand the importance of pursuing all available legal remedies to challenge the validity of your conviction or the fairness of your sentence.

Post-conviction relief encompasses a range of options, including habeas corpus petitions, petitions for writ of coram nobis, or motions for DNA testing. These mechanisms provide an opportunity to raise claims such as newly discovered evidence, ineffective assistance of counsel, prosecutorial misconduct, or violations of your constitutional rights.

Our skilled post-conviction attorneys will carefully review your case, assess the trial record, and conduct thorough investigations to uncover any potential grounds for post-conviction relief. We will meticulously analyze the trial proceedings, review the effectiveness of your defense representation, and explore any legal errors or constitutional violations that may have occurred.

With a comprehensive understanding of post-conviction laws and procedures, we will diligently prepare compelling legal arguments and meticulously assemble supporting evidence. Our goal is to demonstrate that your conviction or sentence was unjust, and to seek the appropriate relief, such as a new trial, resentencing, or even the vacation of your conviction.

Throughout the post-conviction process, we remain steadfast in our commitment to protecting your rights and seeking justice. We will advocate zealously on your behalf, presenting persuasive arguments in court, and fighting for the recognition of any errors, injustices, or constitutional violations that may have occurred during your trial.
