Find out what makes us different from other law firms by visiting our Personal Injury Law page. It's a fact. Innocent people have been convicted of crimes they did not commit. Maybe the judge made a bad ruling, or the prosecutor was a bit too aggressive. Or maybe the defendant's own attorney could have done more.

Find out more information on our Personal Injury page, and take our Personal Injury Law Quiz. We also focus on helping people who have been convicted of a crime. We take on cases where someone has just been convicted and wishes to appeal. This is known as a "direct appeal." We also handle post-conviction motions. Post-conviction motions are known as "collateral attack" motions.
