This is the story of EJI in its beginning with just a couple of lawyers and through the inception of what it is today – a thriving practice of over 150 people.
While the book does recount cases of several people Bryan and his team worked with in the beginning, much of the book focuses on his trying to help Walter McMillian. Walter was on death row for the murder of a young white woman that he did not commit. At the time of the murder, Walter was miles away at a family gathering and was able to prove that he wasn’t anywhere near the crime scene.
