Michael Kennedy McIntyre serves as an attorney with McIntyre & Associates, an Atlanta-based firm he founded in 1985. At the firm, Michael Kennedy McIntyre and his associates provide post-conviction representation for individuals who have been convicted of a felony in the State of Georgia. Mr. McIntyre and his team have experience helping clients with a variety of legal actions, including filing and litigating a state application for writ of habeas corpus. Habeas corpus petitions allege that an individual’s custody or incarceration is unconstitutional based upon what occurred prior to, or during, the individual’s trial or plea hearing. Habeas corpus is a complicated process with many possible claims that could lead to relief from convictions and sentences. The attorneys at McIntyre & Associates have decades of experience in identifying winning claims and litigating habeas corpus actions. They have the knowledge and the expertise to investigate, draft, and litigate habeas corpus actions in Georgia state courts. State habeas corpus relief can be sought by any individual imprisoned as a result of a sentence imposed by a Georgia court or by an individual who is not in physical custody but who is suffering from adverse collateral consequences (e.g., being on parole or probation) as a result of the individual’s conviction and/or sentence.
