  • What to look for when hiring a lawyer to help with parole hearing? What is included in a parole package? What is the fees range?

    Assuming that this is a parole release hearing, as opposed to a parole revocation hearing, I have found it essential to obtain and review the inmate's underlying criminal case including the pre-sentence probation report as well as his complete inmate record ( programs, certifications,disciplinary record, etc.) as well as the minutes of any prior Board appearances. I have found that the results are better when I either personally meet with the client , or , at the very least correspond with him/her to educate them about what factors are the most important and what the Board is looking for.
