Do Not Give Up on Your Freedom
It is quite common for new evidence to emerge after a conviction. If you have come across newly discovered evidence that was not a part of your original case, it may be a sign that your belief in a wrongful conviction is justified.
With DNA testing and analysis much more sophisticated, there are many people who have been in jail for a long time who now have access to hard evidence proving their innocence. While there are many steps you need to take for a retrial, we can guide you through the process and give you the second chance you deserve.
We help the wrongfully convicted get the retrials they deserve for a wide range of reasons, including:
- Ineffective assistance of counsel claims: If your lawyer ignored deadlines or failed to properly follow state or federal defense requirements, you may have an ineffective assistance of counsel claim. We can help you get the trial you deserve.
- Prosecutorial misconduct claims: It is not uncommon to learn after a case is settled that a prosecutor withheld evidence. If any eyewitness made a statement in your favor, but the prosecutor never came forward with this evidence, that could be enough to throw out the initial conviction.
