In Chicago, Pursuing the "Righteous Path"

Last weekend, while in town for a court appearance and for a speaking engagement at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, I had the pleasure of talking with Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mary Mitchell and being featured in her Sunday column. We had a wide-ranging conversation spanning the details of my wrongful conviction, how and why I decided to become an attorney, and the creation of my law firm. 

As part of this work, I am representing several individuals in Chicago and Cook County in different cases involving wrongful conviction and civil rights violations. Disappointingly, many of the same flaws in the criminal justice system that imprisoned me for a crime I did not commit are present in my clients’ cases. 

I am committed to fighting these miscarriages of justice, or as Ms. Mitchell notes, pursuing the “righteous path,” and will be representing clients across the nation. If you or a loved one need an attorney for cases in criminal court, please contact my office.
