The conviction of innocent individuals is among the issues getting increased attention as our nation looks more closely at our criminal justice system. While there are a number of ways individuals can be wrongly convicted, successfully reversing a conviction is incredibly difficult. This is an area where competent legal representation can make a big difference and where there are myriad opportunities for lawyers interested in providing pro bono legal services.
