Chicago Civil Rights Litigators

Together with Gerry L. Spence of Jackson, Wyoming, we represented Dennis Williams, one of the "Ford Heights Four," in a malicious prosecution case against Cook County, Illinois and certain sheriff's deputies. Mr. Williams spent 18 years in prison, 15 of those on death row, for a crime he did not commit. All four cases were settled in April 1999 for $36 million. Williams v. County of Cook, Case No. 97 L 4886 (Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois). We continue to be involved in other high profile civil rights cases.
