Crime » Prison Law

You may lose your freedom, but you don’t lose your rights.

The fact you are in prison doesn’t mean that you don’t have any rights. We can help protect those rights and ensure that you are fully and fairly represented within the prison system, assisting with anything from parole hearings to categorisation reviews.

We understand that all our clients are different, with different needs, and that some people may require additional support if they are feeling particularly vulnerable or unable to cope with prison life. To Howells, you’re a lot more than a number and we work hard to tailor our services to the person behind the prisoner.
