Chicago Wrongful Conviction Lawyers

A wrongful conviction can cost you your freedom. If you were incarcerated, you can never regain that time. If you were convicted of a felony, you may lose the right to vote or own a firearm. The stigma of certain convictions can also affect your ability to get a good job.

You can fight your wrongful conviction and regain your freedom. At Acosta Law Group in Chicago, we can help you fight for your civil rights. We understand the impact a conviction can have on your future, and we are committed to protecting our clients’ rights at every stage of the legal process, from the initial arrest, through trial and in any post-conviction work.

Reinvestigating Your Case

To overturn a wrongful conviction, you need to work with an attorney who is skilled at appeals and post conviction work. You also need a lawyer who will thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to your arrest and who has the trial record to explore every avenue for getting your conviction overturned. This may include a close examination of the evidence such as:

  • DNA evidence
  • Polygraph results
  • Forensic analysis
  • Witness testimony

In addition to the evidence, we also examine the actions of the prosecution and the court to determine if there are grounds to overturn your case. Whether through a motion, through appeal or other post-conviction work, we will act as your advocate and root out prosecutorial misconduct, new evidence and other information that can exonerate you.
