Our Work

Founded in 2007, CRI collaborates with indigent criminal defense teams on cases where social history and mental health investigations impact sentencing decisions. We work primarily on death penalty cases and also serve as mitigation specialists on impactful non-capital cases. In accordance with ABA Guidelines, CRI leads an exhaustive process involving record collection and multiple, in-person, face-to-face conversations with everyone who carries a piece of our clients’ story.

CRI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All contributions are tax-deductible. Tax ID: 26-0564961
