How a trial lawyer with a passion for criminal justice can be an advocate for people’s rights
A trial lawyer who has dedicated his career to fighting wrongful convictions through the courts has made it his mission to help victims of crime, too.
Theodore M. Meech has been fighting wrongful conviction since he was 17.
His case in the U.S. Supreme Court is one of several that he has been pursuing, but he is also involved in a number of other cases, including one that involves a case against a New Jersey man who was sentenced to death.
While he has had a difficult start in this arena, Meeche says that he is confident that his experience has helped others overcome the challenges that come with challenging the system.
“The problem is that it’s just hard to get it out there.
And it takes a lot of hard work to get someone to talk about it,” Meeches attorney, Jason Waddell, told Business Insider.”
But it’s something that the public needs to get behind, that they can come to grips with,” he added.
The fact that people can see someone going through this, who has suffered through it, and come to terms with it and say, ‘This is not what I wanted to do,'” he added, “that’s something we’re really trying to help people do.
“While the legal system is often a place of privilege for those charged with crimes, Mees attorneys are hoping to help them realize their full potential, and help them avoid wrongful convictions.
Meech started his career as a law clerk to a prosecutor in New Jersey, and he has since worked as a trial attorney for New Jersey’s Supreme Court.
He started in the New Jersey criminal defense field in 2006, and has since served as a judge on the New York Court of Appeals.
During his career, he has helped clients including the defendants in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the death penalty, the defendants who were convicted of raping a 10-year-old girl, and the defendants whose convictions were overturned on appeal because of errors in the evidence.
Mees is currently representing one defendant in a wrongful conviction case in New York, and in his role as an attorney, he helps clients find and resolve their legal challenges.”
I think that in this particular case, there was just a lack of information, a lack a sense of accountability, and a sense that justice was being done, that we were getting a fair trial,” he said.
When he was in New Zealand, Miech represented the families of victims of the 2002 tsunami, including the victims of a woman who died after she was raped by a stranger.”
When you’re in a situation where there is a lack [of] information, that’s what you’re going to see,” he explained.”
And when you see a victim who is a victim of a crime and has been convicted and has served their time, it can be very difficult for people to understand how to come to a fair and appropriate conclusion.
And they are very, very reluctant to do that.
“While it can sometimes be hard to connect with someone whose life is in limbo after a wrongful convictions, Muech said he believes that “the most important thing to do is to have that conversation with them.””
We know that there are people who can be the first to go through this,” he continued.”
It’s not a black and white, if you’re guilty or innocent, it’s a grey area, and we can go through it together.
