Ensuring Sound Science in the Courtroom

The Forensic Justice Project helps attorneys in criminal cases understand and challenge faulty or misleading forensic evidence.  FJP also helps attorneys to develop sound scientific evidence where appropriate, and we provide representation for defendants asserting factual innocence in DNA-related cases.

FJP steps into cases at all phases, whether pre-trial, appeal, or post-conviction.
