Question Need attorney in appealing a California 3-strike sentence

so long story short, my husband was sentenced under California's three strike law and we are currently in the process of filing the appeal.
He had a public defender during his trial and IF we get approved for a new trial, i want to make sure we have a lawyer that will give us a chance at getting him out.


So my question is, anyone know of some attorneys that you would recommend for 3 strike cases?

Appeals take a while and it is very difficult to get a reversal on appeal, so you should probably hold off looking for an attorney until you get the decision. Attorneys with the public defender's office are usually the best choice since they have the most experience with three strikes cases and are best able to negotiate with the DA. Very few private attorneys have a lot of experience with three strikes cases.

A good appeals attorney is Dennis Fischer. The public defender can file for the appeal and he can pick it up.
