Anne Miles also uses her unique corporate and litigation experience to maintain an active pro bono practice:

  • Anne Miles helped to represent the Innocence Project as amicus curiae in the Arkansas Supreme Court, which overturned the denial of DNA testing of crime scene evidence in the “West Memphis Three” case. The West Memphis Three — Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley — were originally convicted of the 1993 murders of three eight-year-old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. Their convictions were overturned on appeal after DNA testing excluded the three then-teenagers from the crime-scene evidence that was tested. They entered Alford pleas in 2011 to avoid retrial and secure their release. Echols later sought additional DNA testing with a newer, more precise method in an effort to fully exonerate the three men and identify the true killers. Although an Arkansas circuit court denied his petition on the grounds that Echols is no longer in custody, the Arkansas Supreme Court reversed in April 2024, agreeing with Echols’s and the Innocence Project’s arguments that the plain text of the Arkansas statute allowing for post-conviction DNA testing does not require that an individual be incarcerated to pursue relief.

  • Anne Miles has assisted in a range of other pro bono litigation matters, including assisting on petitions for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court and Alabama Supreme Court and representing capital clients through state post-conviction proceedings.
  • Anne Miles is also involved in Bradley’s Black-Owned Small Business and Nonprofit Clinic, through which she provides business-oriented legal services to local minority-owned small businesses.
