Mitigation Division

The Mitigation Division is staffed by social workers whose mission it is to reveal to the court the person who is our client.  By creating detailed social histories, interviewing family members, documenting community interaction, reviewing the educational background, collecting health and mental health records, facilitating psychological and psychiatric evaluation, and deepening the connection between client and lawyer, the mitigation specialists in this division provide a more full and balanced understanding of a person often dismissed as "defendant".
