Correcting and Preventing Wrongful Convictions in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

Partner

The Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project (MAIP) is a very small organization and could not further its important mission without the help of its partners. Over the past few years, MAIP has benefited from relationships with several law firms and corporations that have partnered with us on a variety of projects, not just traditional legal matters. As a non-profit organization with a very small staff, we have need for a variety of design services, technology services, administrative assistance, research assistance, and other critically important work.

For example, the website you are reading is the product of a partnership with Brickstone, which has provided MAIP with pro bono web design and maintenance services.  DTI Associates provided pro bono graphic design services, designing a first-rate logo and brochure for MAIP.  Without the support of such generous and committed companies, MAIP could not have produced such excellent materials. If your company is interested in providing MAIP with non-legal services, such as copies, storage, or technological help, please email cfiscella@exonerate.org.

Law firms in our region also have been generous, providing tremendous assistance to wrongfully convicted prisoners all over the region. Lawyers at Baker Botts, Brown Rudnick, Buckley Sandler, Covington & Burling, Cozen O’Connor, Hogan Lovells, Hunton & Williams, Latham & Watkins, Miller & Chevalier, O’Melveny & Myers, Skadden Arps, Steptoe & Johnson, Venable, Williams & Connolly, and Wilmer Hale have generously engaged in the long-term representation of individuals who have been wrongfully convicted.  Lawyers at Cleary Gottlieb Stein & Hamilton, Drinker Biddle & Reath, Hunton & Williams, Morrison & Foerster, Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, SNR Denton, and Sullivan & Cromwell comprise our Screening Committee, which does the important work of determining which prisoners who write us might be innocent.

Long-term representation and committee membership are not the only way for your firm to get involved with MAIP, however. We have a variety of short-term projects available for those who want to partner with us in other ways.  Those can involve amicus briefs, non-profit corporate work, and policy work.
