Challenging Coerced Confessions and Eyewitness Testimony

If you have been wrongfully coerced into confessing or if you have been falsely accused based on questionable eye-witness testimony, it is important to have a lawyer by your side who understands how to address this kind of evidence.

When the charges are this serious, you need an experienced lawyer with significant litigation skills. Allison Ritter and Elizabeth Frenandez have defended people against murder and reckless homicide charges. The stakes in such cases are high and the punishment is severe. A conviction for a charge of first degree murder will lead to a sentence of many years in prison or even life without parole. It is critical to have a skilled attorney who has experience in Milwaukee defending people against homicide charges or other charges of violent crimes.
