Criminal Law

The firm handles a wide variety of criminal appeals, as well as post-conviction challenges in state and federal court.  One of our most high-profile cases involved a juvenile sentenced to life without parole for a non-homicide. We took his case to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled that his sentence was unconstitutionally cruel and unusual.  The Court's decision invalidates in part the sentencing laws of 37 states, the federal government, and the District of Columbia.
