Jarrett Adams
Jarrett Adams was wrongfully convicted of a crime he did not commit at age 17 and sentenced to 28 years in a maximum-security prison. After serving nearly 10 years and filing multiple appeals, Jarrett was exonerated with the assistance of the Wisconsin Innocence Project. Jarrett used the injustice he endured as inspiration to become an advocate for the underserved and often uncounted. As a first step, Jarrett earned his Juris Doctorate from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in May 2015 and started a public interest law fellowship with Ann Claire Williams, judge for the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, the same court that reversed his conviction. After working for the Innocence Project in New York, Jarrett launched the Law Office of Jarrett Adams, PLLC, in 2017 and practices in both federal and state court throughout the country. His story is a breathtaking journey of incarceration, exoneration and redemption.
