We are lawyers because we want to see justice done. Overturning a wrongful conviction or getting an innocent person released from prison is exhilarating, emotionally rewarding and makes us proud of our profession.
EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS HAVE OVERTURNED CONVICTIONS
Imagine this nightmare: you are accused of and tried for a crime you did not commit. You’re innocent, yet you are convicted and sent to prison. This tragic scenario has played out in the American legal system far too often. Fortunately, in recent years, organizations and individuals have taken it upon themselves to do something about these miscarriages of justice.
JUSTICE FOR THE WRONGLY CONVICTED
Bob Hilliard, a founding partner of HMG, fought long, difficult courtroom battles to exonerate three victims of wrongful conviction and incarceration. The convictions stemmed from fatal accidents involving General Motors and Toyota vehicles. Mr. Hilliard, having previously gone to court over these auto manufacturers’ defective products, knew that the convicted drivers’ claims of inability to control their vehicles were true. GM’s faulty ignition switch and Toyota’s sudden unintended acceleration defects caused the tragic accidents, not the recklessness or negligence of the drivers.
At right: details of these compelling exonerations.
WE STAND UP FOR THE INNOCENT
Our firm has earned a national reputation for taking wrongful conviction cases that other lawyers refuse as too difficult or politically sensitive. If you or someone you know is innocent of the crime for which they are accused or convicted, we are here to help you seek justice.
