Exonerating Individuals, Indicting a System


Parisa Tafti has worked for 18 years on the side of the indigent at all levels of the criminal justice system, from trial to Post-conviction. Her work has served to shine a harsh light on  the many ways the system fails vulnerable citizens whose only crime is poverty or mental illness, fails to deliver equal justice, and fails to protect the very communities it claims to serve. 

 







Parisa has represented Donald Gates, the first DNA exoneration in DC, as well as been on the teams in two significant cases overturned by the Supreme Court of the United States, and Wilber Rideau, who has been called the most rehabilitated prisoner in America.
