Mission Statement

Traditional Unit

We are committed to the pursuit of justice by aggressively advocating in federal district and appellate courts for the constitutional rights and inherent dignity of individuals who are accused or convicted of crimes and cannot afford to pay for a lawyer.

We advance the rights of all individuals by developing innovative approaches in our representation that promote systemic change and by serving as a valuable resource to the larger legal community.
