Pro Bono

Pro Bono

Volunteer lawyers are crucial to the success of the Pennsylvania Innocence Project. With a limited professional staff, volunteer attorneys serve on every case we take to court as co-counsel to exonerate the convicted innocent.

Lawyers at a single firm can help us review a case at Stage 3 level or represent a Project client in court. All interested attorneys or firms receive a two hour training seminar we provide.

If you are interested in having the Project come to your firm for a training session, please contact Clay Waterman at

If you’re an attorney and interested in working with us pro bono, please send an email to Clay Waterman at and complete the Attorney Volunteer Application Form below. Please note, this form is for volunteer attorneys only.
