The law firm of Kathleen T. Zellner and Associates says it is assuming 'full and complete representation' of Steven Avery.

The announcement was made in an online news release late Friday afternoon. "The Zellner Law Firm is looking forward to adding Mr. Avery to its long list of wrongful conviction exonerations," the email reads.

Tricia Bushnell of the Midwest Innocence Project is also working with the firm on a local level. The Zellner Law Firm is based in Downers Grove, Illinois.
