A conviction can be appealed to either the Nevada Supreme Court or the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for federal offenses. If those avenues do not bring relief, a writ to the United States Supreme Court may be pursued in limited circumstances. If you feel you were denied effective assistance of counsel, a post-conviction writ of habeas corpus can be filed. If that fails, the denial can be appealed. If all state remedies have been exhausted without success, relief can be sought in federal court.
