The Registry does not investigate cases or represent defendants. If you are looking for legal representation you may want to contact one of these organizations:

The Innocence Network is an association of innocence projects in nearly every state in the nation that represent people who were wrongfully convicted of crimes. Here is a list of innocence organizations with each organizations' criteria for accepting cases.

The Innocence Project​ is a nationwide organization that represents people in cases in which there is physical evidence that could be tested for DNA to show that the defendant is actually innocent.

After Innocence provides one-on-one assistance to help exonerees with healthcare, public benefits and legal services, and works for long-term change by promoting better compensation laws.
