I was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to juvenile life without parole when I was 14 years old. Thanks to Lisa Polansky, I was released after serving 14 years and exonerated on June 16, 2014. Lisa is a very dedicated attorney and she fought hard for me every day. She is also a great leader and mentor. She took the time to listen and explain every step towards fighting for and winning my freedom!

Lisa is dedicated and knowledgable. She's very easy to talk to and will take the time to really understand your situation and fight hard for you. I highly recommend her!

I have worked with Ms. Polansky on a number of cases, and she always impressed me with her knowledge of the case and the law. She cannot hide her passion for defending, representing, and helping her clients. Further, Ms. Polansky always knows the law and every nuance of the law as it applies to the case at hand - she does her homework and does it thoroughly. Should I ever need an advocate for whatever reason, Ms. Polansky will be the person I contact first.

I had the opportunity to work with Ms. Polansky on a complex, high-profile criminal matter. Ms. Polansky is an elite criminal defense attorney with the experience, legal skill, and strategic thinking to get the best results in the most challenging situations. And her dedication to clients is second to none. I highly recommend Ms. Polansky.
