According to criminologists at the University of Pennsylvania, in the United States:

  • DNA-based exonerations occur for between 3-5% of capital crimes such as murder and rape.
  • Wrongful convictions are reported for 6% of all crimes.
  • In 2019, the Innocence Project reports that 143 wrongfully convicted people were exonerated.

Get Justice for Civil Rights Violations
Being locked up for a crime you didn’t commit. Suffering severe injury or death as the result of overzealous, poorly-trained police. Losing a loved one because someone in power wasn’t acting with reasonable care. We all have the right to live our lives—but if someone impedes that right, intentionally or unintentionally—our civil rights have been violated. And those who caused the wrong need to be held responsible and accountable.

Civil rights are an essential element of our democracy, guaranteeing that all Americans have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness regardless of gender, race, religion, or other characteristics. Unfortunately, one only needs to read the latest news headlines to understand that people aren’t always treated equally. And if you or your family member is the victim of a civil rights violation, you deserve answers—and justice.
