Exclamation Help please - We are seeking a way to get our case back to court

We are seeking a way to get our case back to court. My fiancee is in prison on a 10 yr sentence that he must serve 85%, the case we had we plead through our lawyers urging to this plea of 10 years. The lawyers told us it not to appeal was their urging that we should try and get a sentence reduction that did not happen. We are at 2 yrs now and we were wondering is there a way to file an untimely criminal appeal in alabama or any other post conviction remedy that would be possible. We were new parents (24 days since we had our son) and were told by our lawyers that the judge said if he was convicted and he believed that he would be of atleast one of the 2 charges (The judge was leading the jury) he would give my fiancee life. Please any help you can give us thank you all and god bless.

Chances are, when he plead, he gave up the right to appeal. Should he appeal, he'll go back to the trial court and face the possibility of the full boat with a SA and a judge a lot less inclined to deal.
