Daniel Epstein

Illinois Supreme Court, IL

Daniel Epstein is an award winning attorney who represented clients in complex pro bono cases in the Supreme Court of the United States and courts across the country. But it was when he returned to serve clients in Illinois that he experienced the systemic problems that he’s now campaigning to fix. Daniel saw the State using faulty DNA machines and pseudoscience to convict people; a system giving financial rewards to forensic labs and courts for finding guilt; and a system vulnerable to judicial corruption. And, most importantly, he saw what we can do to fix it.
