Lieff Cabraser is proud to sponsor the Tennessee Innocence Project’s annual fundraising event, “Inspired by Innocence,” on Thursday, Oct. 27. Over the past year, the Tennessee Innocence Project (TIP) successfully obtained 4 exonerations for actually innocent clients wrongfully convicted of murder. Funds from the event pay for legal services for TIP clients.
“Tennessee Innocence Project’s work is life changing for innocent people who would otherwise be in prison, possibly, for years to come,” noted Mark Chalos, managing partner of Lieff Cabraser’s Nashville office and board member of TIP. “TIP’s work is truly significant.”
