Filing Motions in Montgomery County

One of the most effective means to take the offensive in a criminal case is the file pre-trial motions. Similarly, one of the best ways to provide relief to a convicted individual is to motion for certain post-conviction requests. A motion is a term used in court for a legal action. Motions are filed in the appropriate division in the court and may need to be defended at a hearing. For cases in Montgomery County, all motions are filed in the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas, in Norristown, PA.

Filing Motions in Montgomery County

There are a number of motions for both pre-trial defensive action or post-conviction relief. Some common motions that can be filed include:

While defendants can certainly file these motions without an attorney, or through the use of a public defender, a private attorney will be able to devote more time and resources to ensure that motions are filed properly, and will be able to dedicate more time to ensure a motion is properly defended in court. In addition to this, a private attorney involved early on can strengthen a defendant's case as it moves forward to a trial or can provide quicker relief for a defendant who has been convicted.
