‘The Inevitable Is Coming’: Steven Avery’s Lawyer Is More Confident Than Ever In Her Client’s Innocence


Steven Avery’s new fancy-pants lawyer Kathleen Zellner does not mince words when discussing her client’s case. She is fierce, hard-hitting, and determined to right the perceived wrongs in the case that put Steven Avery behind bars for the rest of his life.

The 2014 Lawyer Magazine’s Person of the Year has gone on several Twitter tirades dismantling the case against Steven Avery, raising various points that expose the recklessness in which the case was investigated.

As Complex points out, Zellner spoke to TheLipTV last week and confidently stood in her client’s corner.

“It’s the evidence. In having had a number of these cases, it has the signature of a wrongful conviction case. They only focused on him. They did not look at a lot of other suspects, certainly some very key people they should have been looking at. There was a very poor investigation done of the victim’s background, who she was involved with, the circumstances of her life. It had all of the hallmarks of a wrongful conviction case.”


Zellner also took to Twitter this week in her most recent probing of the case in true Zellner fashion.


This news has come at an interesting time, as just last week journalist Dan O’Donnell–who covered Steven’s Teresa Halbach trial–claimed that Steven’s nephew Brendan Dassey had been sexually assaulted by his uncle.

Things are heating back up.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
