Read the Executive Summary of my new book, Fixing Legal Injustice in America, to be published in July 2022, which answers the question:
“What can we do to reform criminal justice”
Nineteen times, death penalty defense lawyer Andrea D. Lyon has represented a client convicted of capital murder. Nineteen times, she has argued for that individual’s life to be spared. Nineteen times, she has succeeded.
Dubbed the "Angel of Death Row" by the Chicago Tribune, Lyon was the first woman to serve as lead attorney in a death penalty case.
