Join CJAN for a discussion with Eric Seiff ’58 about his representation of Korey Wise, one of the wrongfully convicted Central Park Five, and criminal defense more generally. Mr. Seiff began representing Korey in 2002, when he moved for his conviction to be set aside.

Mr. Seiff has briefed and argued more than one hundred appeals in the state and federal courts and has obtained complete jury acquittals in eight of his last nine criminal trials. Mr. Seiff began his career as an appellate Assistant District Attorney, worked at the Legal Aid Society, and served on a task force that exposed law enforcement's dereliction of duty in their investigation of the Attica uprising. He has represented many well-known defendants when they are investigated, all of whose cases resulted in no charges being filed, and often represents lawyers before disciplinary committees. He is currently of counsel at Storch Amini P.C. He also has been a long time member of the Boards of Directors of the Prisoners’ Legal Services and the Fortune Society.
