Attorneys Michael Matthews and Lawrence Dougherty were featured in a Law360 article, “Foley Attys Get New Trial for Man Serving Life Behind Bars,” on May 8, 2015. The article discussed a pro bono case Matthews and Dougherty successfully argued in front of the Florida Supreme Court that resulted in the state’s high court creating new precedent for evidence admissible in trial. According to Matthews, “This case presented the rare mix of both what we thought was a constitutional due process violation, as well as lack of evidence.”
