Suzerain provides direct legal representation to indigent criminal defendants facing capital murder charges in South Carolina and Louisiana. To provide the high quality of representation to which capital defendants are entitled, we are involved in no more than three cases at any given time.
Suzerain teams with public defenders assigned to capital cases to provide assistance and help minimize the effects of high caseloads and inadequate governmental funding.
Suzerain provides experiential education to law students interested in pursuing a career in indigent capital defense. Interns work directly with Suzerain’s attorney on pending death penalty cases.
