We have a long and distinguished reputation for advising and assisting clients in all aspects of prison law, and our prison law solicitors offer a nationwide service throughout England and Wales.
Prison law addresses the rights and entitlements of prisoners during their sentence. It is one of the most challenging areas of law to deal with, not least because of the enormous implications that any issue affecting a person can have on their progression and ultimate release.
Our prison law solicitors understand that serving a prison sentence can be a frustrating and confusing time for both prisoners and their families. Prisoners often feel powerless when they first arrive in prison and do not know who to turn to for help. They often feel deserted and not everyone has family to rely upon or the necessary emotional support to cope with the daily demands of prison life.
Our prison law lawyers really understand the system and our primary aim is to resolve an issue in an understandable manner that achieves the best possible outcome for the prisoner and their family.
The Government has now greatly restricted the scope of advice which we can provide under the legal aid advice and assistance scheme. However, we recognise that there is not always the ability for a prisoner or their family to pay large sums for advice and assistance where legal aid is not available. That is why we offer some of the most competitive prices for privately funded cases which we are happy to discuss on a case by case basis.
Our prison law solicitors and advisors regularly write for the leading prison law newspaper, Inside Time, and have made a significant contribution to the prisoner handbook relied upon by inmates and others with an interest in prisons, prison life and prison law.
