Fighting for Justice: Wrongful Conviction Lawyers in Your Area
If you or a loved one has been wrongfully convicted of a crime, it is time to get your life back and obtain financial compensation in a civil lawsuit. The way to accomplish this is by working with an experienced firm that knows your rights and how to navigate the justice system to achieve a verdict or settlement for you.
Your wrongful conviction claim
With headquarters in Chicago, the wrongful conviction attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin know the damage and devastation that can be caused when someone’s constitutional rights are violated by the justice system. Our team has experience and success bringing justice to clients in some of the country’s most prolific cases, including being on the legal team representing the family of George Floyd. The attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin know how to navigate these sensitive and often high-profile cases and bring justice to those involved.
National experience and results in wrongful conviction matters
At Romanucci & Blandin, we approach a wrongful conviction claim to provide monetary compensation and hold an individual or institution financially accountable and responsible for the physical and emotional and even economic damages that have occurred. In too many cases, encounters with law enforcement can end tragically. In some cases, the officer(s) involved in police misconduct or excessive force cases may face criminal charges, but with or without those charges, victims can move forward with civil litigation, in an effort to receive financial compensation for what happened.
Our law firm has a team of attorneys and staff with many years of experience related to wrongful convictions. Our civil rights and police misconduct legal team includes partners who guide the process and share their deep knowledge of these types of lawsuits. Each client and each situation is different, and your claim is treated with great care and respect as the team investigates what happened and determines the best path to justice for you.
We know exactly what to do to litigate your wrongful conviction case. We will obtain all necessary background information on the officer or officers involved and, if appropriate understand the municipal or organizational history, training or patterns and practices that may have played a role. Holding municipalities accountable for their officers’ conduct under a 42 U.S.C. §1983 Monell claim is an important part of civil rights law, and an area our team knows very well. We find the records, interview witnesses, utilize police and medical experts and prepare thoroughly and meticulously for your case. Ultimately, our aim is to obtain the maximum compensation possible so that you can move on with your life.
Our results for wrongful conviction cases
The results we have achieved in wrongful conviction cases are a testament to our team’s fierce dedication to clients. Whether your case goes to trial or reaches a mediated settlement, our civil rights and police misconduct lawyers have the expertise and experience to be successful.
