About Us

The Capital Appeals Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit law office established to provide representation to all indigent defendants sentenced to death in Louisiana. Our office represents clients in their direct appeals to the Louisiana Supreme Court and on certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. In addition to direct representation, our staff members also resource ongoing capital trials, provide training and consultation for capital defense attorneys, engage in public outreach and education on issues relating to capital punishment, and advocate for continued improvement in the criminal justice system.
