Wrongful convictions and false confessions are a devastating and tragic result of the failures in our criminal legal system. Countless innocent people have been wrongly accused and falsely incarcerated in this country, sometimes for decades, due to police and prosecutorial misconduct. Recent statistics show that a significant percentage of confessions are false and are proven false by DNA evidence that exonerates the accused.
We have taken the lead in understanding the psychology of false confessions and the improper and coercive tactics used by law enforcement investigators in producing false confessions. For more information on false confessions, see our article entitled “The Truth About False Confessions” published in the New Jersey Law Journal on September 15, 2015.
If you were wrongly incarcerated and have been exonerated, you may be able to file a civil rights lawsuit for financial compensation. While we can never replace the precious years you or a loved one have lost, we can fight to secure a verdict or settlement for this injustice.
As a result of our extensive experience litigating post-conviction relief petitions and wrongful conviction cases, we have achieved justice for many clients. We have extensive understanding of matters such as coerced statements, false confessions, wrongful identifications, improper forensics, junk science and phony expert testimony used by police and prosecutors to wrongfully convict the innocent.
