Fried Frank To Be Honored At Innocence Project's Annual Gala

NEW YORK, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP announced that it will be honored for its long-standing support of the Innocence Project, a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.  The Firm will be recognized at the Innocence Project's upcoming gala, "A Celebration of Freedom & Justice," to be held in New York City on April 30.

Fried Frank regularly provides legal advice to Innocence Project staff and serves as co-counsel with the Innocence Project on a number of pro bono matters. The Firm has assisted the Innocence Project in representing individuals claiming actual innocence and seeking post-conviction relief through the submission of amicus curiae briefs on issues such as the flawed science of bite-mark identification and eyewitness misidentification.

Several Fried Frank attorneys individually support the Innocence Project by serving in a number of capacities, including as members of the Lawyers Committee, which is dedicated to supporting the Innocence Project's national policy program to reform the criminal justice system and protect the public against wrongful prosecution and imprisonment and the Young Professionals Committee and, from 2006 to 2011, the Board of Directors. 

"Fried Frank deeply values its relationship with the Innocence Project, and is proud to stand with our long-time pro bono partner in its mission to deliver legal services where they are so urgently needed," said Fried Frank Chair Valerie Ford Jacob.

"We are grateful to Fried Frank for its continued support," said Maddy deLone, Executive Director of the Innocence Project. "The commitment and talent that the Fried Frank team brings to each case has been of extraordinary benefit to the Innocence Project as well as the individuals who have been exonerated."
