When to File a Wrongful Conviction Lawsuit
When an individual is imprisoned and deprived of his or her physical liberty – and is later fully exonerated – they have every right to expect compensation for this abhorrent miscarriage of justice. Being victimized by the very system that is supposed to protect them, they have lost a portion of their life they can never reclaim. A person in this situation will also endure irreparable harm to their reputation, relationships, and emotional well-being.
Police officers and prosecutors are capable of making mistakes; they are also capable of pushing forward blindly, simply to get a conviction. Other people may find it advantageous to lie and try to implicate others if they think it will help them avoid conviction or lessen their own sentence. It really doesn’t matter why – if you have been unjustly imprisoned, and have subsequently been exonerated – you deserve to work with an experienced attorney that will fight for the justice you were originally denied.

10 Things To Do If You Are Falsely Accused Of A Crime
Unlawful Deprivation of Freedom
There are truly few things that are as damaging to your life as being wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for a crime you haven’t committed. Unfortunately, wrongful convictions happen all too frequently, and when they make the news, the details can be shocking.
Many defendants are railroaded by law enforcement officers and prosecutors using made-up or nonexistent evidence. Biased and racially discriminatory juries often rubber-stamp whatever the prosecutor requests; and in some situations, a prosecutor interferes substantially – withholding evidence that could prove a defendant’s innocence. All these offenses are often revealed only years or decades later – after the falsely convicted defendant has spent many years in prison.
Wrongfully convicted individuals often seek – and the jury awards – millions of dollars in compensation once they are proven innocent. Nevertheless, most people who are wrongfully deprived of their freedom, and are later exonerated, will tell you that no amount of money can make up for the pain and loss they have experienced due to their time spent in prison.
Choosing a Wrongful Conviction Lawyer
If you have had a portion of your life stolen from you by an unjust justice system – and have been fully exonerated – there are many wrongful conviction lawyers to choose from. However, selecting the right attorney can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. Kreizer Law is proud of the work we have done representing clients who have suffered unjust imprisonment and have later had their convictions vacated and the charges dismissed.
David Kreizer is perhaps most proud of his involvement in the civil rights litigation initiated from the wrongful conviction, and later exoneration, of the Central Park Five. David, along with co-counsel, obtained a $41 million landmark settlement from the City of New York.
Kreizer Law - Compassionate, Experienced, Professionals
Our roots in Civil Rights are what sets the Kreizer Law team apart from the rest. If your rights have been violated, and you have subsequently been proven innocent, Kreizer Law can help. There are federal and state laws that allow you to hold government officials accountable when they violate your civil rights. If this has happened to you, or someone you love, you need to work with an experienced, aggressive law firm.
At Kreizer Law, we are prepared to represent all clients who have been exonerated after they were wrongfully convicted of a crime. Unfortunately this is usually proven only after they were stripped of their rights. We believe even “unpopular” clients who draw unfavorable press deserve fair and equal treatment. Often these individuals find it difficult to retain counsel even after the charges have been dismissed and their conviction was vacated.
This discriminatory treatment, even after being released from prison, only compounds the injustice and highlights the need for a knowledgeable and compassionate wrongful conviction attorney.
