Wrongful Convictions

Wrongful Conviction Attorneys in Philadelphia

Were You Exonerated From a Crime in Pennsylvania or New Jersey?

For those who have been convicted and served time for crimes they did not commit, there may be no greater injustice they will face in life. Weisberg Law is prepared to help people who have been exonerated from the crimes of which they were convicted. While you may feel there is no real adequate reimbursement for the time you lost while incarcerated, we can help you seek compensation to help you re-establish your life as a free individual.

While New Jersey provides a small reward of up to $50,000 for wrongful convictions, Pennsylvania offers no such compensation. In neither case may you find yourself financially fit to rebuild your life. With help from our wrongful conviction attorneys in Philadelphia at Weisberg Law, however, you can seek much greater compensation in a civil lawsuit against those responsible for your improper conviction.

You Have a Right to Seek Compensation

When you are an exoneree, you are also a victim of a wrongful conviction. You have the right to pursue what you deserve through a civil rights lawsuit when you reach out to Weisberg Law for help. We can support your claim to help you get the compensation you feel you deserve for your wrongful conviction and imprisonment.

While no amount of money can account for the time you unlawfully lost behind bars, we can help you see an adequate amount to help you jumpstart your life. The federal government and some states provide a meager compensation, while others like Pennsylvania provide none at all. This can leave newly exonerated people at a severe disadvantage unless they bring forward a lawsuit to seek damages against those responsible for wrongfully putting them behind bars.
