HALO has been court appointed by Judges and privately retained by attorneys, defendants and people who are incarcerated (and their families) to conduct complicated criminal investigations. We are also frequently retained by the victims of crimes as well as major media outlets and of course, we are sometimes retained by others who may not be directly associated to the case at all.
Most of our clients hire HALO after they have been charged or convicted of a crime of which they say they are innocent. Some have exhausted all or most of their appeals and probably the only way they may receive any form of relief will be through new evidence, and that's where we come in.
Our goal is to locate and establish new evidence and evidence that may support a possible ineffective assistance of council claim which may later be used to support any of the several forms of relief that may be available in cases such as:
- Capital Murder (life and death penalty conviction cases)
- Intoxication Manslaughter and Assault
- Aggravated Assault
- Aggravated Sexual Assault
- Aggravated Kidnapping
- Aggravated Robbery
- Injury to Child
- Possession/Manufacturing/Delivery of Controlled Substances
- Aggravated Perjury
- Engaging in Organized Crime
- Official Oppression
- Terroristic Threat
- Civil Rights Violations (Federal civil cases)
