Why Telling Your Story Matters

The complexity of homicide trials has no end. From large, disorganized files to big sums of additional investigation, your story can easily get caught in an endless rabbithole.

That’s exactly what Second Justice wants to avoid.

Frequently Asked

No. There is never a fee for submitting a case for review. Like many other post-conviction service organizations, we are inundated with requests to review cases. But we will review every submission we receive in order to see if it is a case where we can help. 

No. We are a legal services support organization. This means that we help you find a licensed attorney with experience in this area of practice, and then we support that attorney by offsetting costs and providing para-professional assistance with client contact, scheduling, and even some drafting.

Post conviction cases move at a much slower pace than other criminal and civil litigation. Court-imposed deadlines get moved all the time so that the petitioner can have a full and fair opportunity to establish their right to a new trial.

Not necessarily. Convicted people who are serving long sentences that are a direct result of police and/or prosecutorial misconduct are entitled to a new trial and do not have to affirmatively establish their actual innocence, although they often do.
