How Could This Happen? What Can Be Done?

The idea that our criminal justice system can put the wrong person behind bars is terrifying because no one is safe from the potential of a wrongful conviction. If it can happen to them, it can happen to you.

At Mueller Law Firm, we are the voice of the wrongfully convicted. We strive to make sure their stories are told – accurately – and that they receive the full financial compensation they deserve for their ordeal. No amount can ever replace the time lost to a miscarriage of justice, but it’s an important start.

“How common are wrongful convictions?”

Sadly, wrongful convictions are nowhere near rare. In a little over 30 years, more than 2,262 people were exonerated after losing years of their life behind bars for a crime they did not commit. How many years? These wrongful convictions resulted in more than 23,000 years in total time lost (Source: The National Registry of Exonerations).

“What are the most common contributing factors to wrongful convictions?”

The most common contributing factors to wrongful convictions are eyewitness misidentification, faulty forensics, false confessions, and jailhouse snitch witnesses.

“Is it too late to make things right?”

Every case is different and the potential outcomes are dictated by the available evidence. However, the sooner you act the sooner we can work on your case and explore all possible means of obtaining the justice and compensation you deserve.

“How much experience do you have with wrongful convictions?”

Obtaining compensation for our wrongfully convicted clients is what drives us at Mueller Law Firm. Wolfgang Mueller brings valuable insight to these complex cases. As a former engineer, he has the scientific background to analyze the forensic evidence that is often the key to resolving these cases. Add his extensive civil litigation experience, and he brings a fierce one-two punch on behalf of the wrongfully convicted. He has represented numerous clients exonerated by the University of Michigan Innocence Clinic and the Cooley Innocence Project at Western Michigan University. 

“What is the first step in making things right after a wrongful conviction?”

Discussing your situation with a knowledgeable attorney is the first step in fighting for your rights and compensation. Call 248-489-WOLF (9653)today for a free consultation, or contact our firm online.
