    Specializing in/Practice limited to representing life-term inmates in the following:

    Since 2009, 53% of my clients received parole grants at their hearings, and many of my writ clients had their writs granted in court. To date, 213 of my clients have gone home to their families and friends. Since SB 260 and 261 were enacted, I have handled over 50 Youthful Offender Parole Hearings. Over 60% of them resulted in grants of parole. These client success stories have happened during a time when the Board has granted parole to less than 25% of inmates, including youthful offenders, who went to hearings.

    I primarily represent California inmates, including youthful offenders, serving life with the possibility of parole at parole hearings and in related matters, and juvenile LWOPs seeking resentencing to life with the possibility of parole, and inmates convicted of murder who weren’t the actual killer seeking resentencing under SB1437.  If you have a family member, friend, or significant other who needs a dedicated lawyer for his or her parole hearing or resentencing hearing, contact me now. My expertise and reputation in this field can mean the difference between your loved one being granted parole and continuing to languish in prison. Many factors come into play at a parole or resentencing hearing, and the system is still biased against inmates, so there is no guarantee of success for even the strongest parole or resentencing candidate. But I firmly believe that having me fighting for you gives you the best chance to beat the odds and go home.
