Which Application Should I Fill Out?

Need help preventing or remedying your wrongful conviction?

I need help! Which application should I fill out?

We know your time is valuable, so we broke down our application process into 3-phases, to make sure we are being mindful of your time and to best allocate our resources.

Breakdown by Phase

Phase 1, is an application that asks basic questions to help us filter your case through our algorithm, to determine if we could be a good fit for you. If we believe we can help you, you will be approved to start Phase 2.

Phase 2, includes a phone call or zoom, as well as some additional correspondence between you and our team, so that we are able to have an open dialogue to clarify any questions we have, understand the details of the case, and to determine if we would be a good fit for each other. If both sides agree this would be a good match, we start Phase 3 together.

Phase 3, is an expanded application, where you are able to provide documents, photos, evidence, witnesses and additional details on the case. If we believe we can help with your case, we will approve you and get started right away. If we believe we can help, but do not currently have the resources to be able to take your case, we will categorize it as "postponed." This means, when the resources are made available, your case will be prioritized, but we cannot start right away, as we would like.

Not sure which application?

The best starting place, is to fill out the Phase 1 Application that corresponds with the current stage of the case.

Please select the best option below:

Pre-Trial Assistance: For those who have been accused of a crime they did not commit and have not yet started trial.
Trial Assistance: For those who who are currently in their first trial and are concerned they will be wrongfully convicted.
Post-Conviction Assistance: For those who have completed at least one trial or mistrial. If you have had multiple trials, please fill out this application, and note the amount of trials you have had.
Post-Exoneration Resources: For those who have been released or exonerated after serving time for a crime they did not commit. This allows us to help exonerees get back on their feet and support them after their release.

If you have any additional questions, please email them to us at or use the contact page above.
