The New Year is a time for reflection

Happy New Year! As we start 2019, it’s important to look at years past and learn from how we have made a difference.

We had the opportunity to assist on a case from the Wisconsin Innocence Project in 2017. The case resulted in a dismissal after 20 years.

Read about the result At the Wisconsin Justice Initiative blog here:

We are not the only ones reflecting on years gone by. The Journal Times released a promotional trailer of a podcast called “The City” today. The City relives what it was like in Racine, through the arrest of the mayor (Our Client), and how the city moved past it.

“For a city the size of Racine, when a key municipal official is arrested it tends to bring chaos and many questions in the wake of the incident. Will the mayor be removed from office? If so, how? Who will fill the role as interim mayor? What will happen to current city projects? When will there be a new election to fill the position if the person arrested steps down or is forced from office?”
