Prison Law

Our Criminal Defence specialists understand how difficult it can be for prisoners to access advice to enforce their legal rights whilst in prison. With our expert intervention, we can help ensure that issues are resolved quickly and effectively.

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.

Our Criminal Defence specialists have an impressive record in challenging the Prison Service in many areas. Our experienced advocates represent prisoners before the Independent Adjudicator, Parole Board and other bodies regularly.

Our Criminal Defence specialists can support you with:

  • Parole
  • Adjudications & Appeals
  • Categorisation & Appeals
  • Licence Recall & Conditions
  • Lifer Hearings
  • IPP Hearings
  • Sentence Planning/Progression
  • Sentence Calculation
  • HDC Appeals
  • Judicial Review
  • Complaints
  • Disciplinary Proceedings
  • Prison transfers
  • HDC pre-decision
  • Healthcare
  • Closed visits
  • Banned visitors

Where practical, we will arrange to see prisoners face-to-face or by video link as soon as possible.
