Kura, Wilford & Schregardus Co., L.P.A.

6/2/2014 4:22:12 PM Today the 9th District Court of Appeals reversed the judgment of the Lorain County Common Pleas Court, and ruled in favor of KWS client Melissa Dovala. The Common Pleas Court previously ruled that new information documenting substantial misrepresentations by her trial lawyer, James Burge, were insufficient to re-open past post-conviction proceedings in a bid to show her Murder conviction resulted from his deficient trial preparation and defense at her 2006 jury trial. Ms. Dovala is now one step closer to the goal of a new trial and her exoneration.
5/28/2014 11:17:13 AM At a contested hearing, KWS client JG was granted xpungment of his conviction of a felony sex offense in the Franklin County Common Pleas Court, over the objection of prosecutors. Expungment (sealing of official records) will hereafter require that he be removed from the Ohio ESORN registry.
