First and foremost, we regularly visit incarcerated clients, provide free attorney telephone conferences, and appear at parole hearings. And finally, we investigate cases throughly and interview correction officers, other inmates, and jail staff. We represent inmates in Washington, DC, Richmond, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida. We use local counsel to help people in need wherever they are, because it’s the right thing to do.
