Good in Practice | Episode 3: A 'Perfect Storm' of Injustice (Pt. 3)

In episode 3, the Greenberg Traurig shareholders who led the firm’s team representing Theophalis Wilson, Kelly Dobbs Bunting and Brian T. Feeney, return as guests. Host Caroline J. Heller, Bunting, Feeney, and Wilson discuss the challenges they faced, what eventually led to a break in their case, and reflect on the day Wilson was eventually exonerated, Jan. 21, 2020.

The three-part “Perfect Storm” tells the story of Theophalis Wilson who was wrongfully-convicted and incarcerated for 28 years before being fully exonerated in January 2020. Greenberg Traurig represented Wilson in his fight for innocence alongside the non-profit public interest law firm Phillips Black.

Good in Practice tells the powerful stories of the good pro bono can achieve, highlighting the work of Greenberg Traurig attorneys, staff, and clients. The goal is to encourage all practitioners to assist undeserved and vulnerable communities by providing much-needed legal counsel on a volunteer basis. Caroline Heller, chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Global Pro Bono Practice, is the host.
