A National Reputation | A History Of Results
The firm is led by attorney Kathleen T. Zellner, who has earned a national reputation as a fighter for justice — justice for people whose civil rights have been violated and justice for victims of professional negligence. In spite of improbable odds, Ms. Zellner and her team have prevailed in difficult and complex cases involving:
- Wrongful conviction, false arrest and false imprisonment: We fight on the side of individuals whose rights have been violated through false arrest, wrongful incarceration, improper prosecution and wrongful criminal conviction.
- Police misconduct and injury to prisoners: We represent victims of police brutality, prisoner mistreatment and other illegal conduct perpetrated by law enforcement and corrections personnel.
- Criminal appeals and post-conviction matters: We handle significant criminal appeals and post-conviction matters, including cases in which DNA evidence and other scientific evidence are utilized to exonerate the innocent.
- Medical negligence: We litigate medical malpractice cases such as those involving the misdiagnosis of cancer and other serious illnesses, suicide malpractice and birth injuries.
