Episode Notes

“[The Steven Avery case] was important in raising serious structural questions about how we administer justice in Wisconsin.” —Dean Strang

On this podcast, Sam talks with Dean Strang, the attorney who represented Steven Avery in the case that formed the basis for Netflix’s Making a Murderer documentary. They discuss how Strang came to represent Avery and how an attorney makes a decision to take a case that will be all-consuming.

Dean Strang is a trial attorney at Strang Bradley, a four-person firm in Wisconsin. Strang was featured in the Netflix ten-part documentary, Making a Murderer. The documentary followed Strang’s representation of Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man who initially served 18 years in prison for a wrongful sexual assault conviction. Two years after Avery was released, he was accused of murder. Strang represented Avery in that trial, which lasted over a year.
