What We Do

The Exoneration Project is one of the best-funded, largest, and most successful innocence projects in the country. To prove our clients’ innocence, we provide free forensic testing, experts, investigative services, and an experienced litigation team to get our clients home where they belong. To date, we have exonerated close to 200 clients, liberating them to live their lives and enjoy their freedom.

Beyond assisting our clients with their claims of actual innocence in court, we also try to address the systemic problems in the criminal legal system that cause innocent people to be convicted of crimes they did not commit. To do so, we advocate for greater accountability in the justice system and have successfully sought mass exonerations. Additionally, we work to ensure our exonerees re-enter society with the supports they need to succeed.
