Attorney Endorsements

9 total 

  • Jay Howard Schwitzman

    I endorse this lawyer. Taylor Koss worked hard to overturn the conviction of a man that was sentenced to life in jail for murder. Murder convictions are rarely overturned and dismissed. What makes this matter remarkable is that Taylor Koss was working as an Assistant District Attorney when he uncovered evidence that an innocent man was convicted and sentenced to life in jail for a murder he did not commit. Taylor Koss certainly gets my endorsement!!
