Know your rights

Those who are subject to a sentence of imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP) will need to fight for the right to Parole. If someone in your family is in the situation they will need advice from the best lawyers. Contact us now on 01642 247656 to speak to our Prison Law team.

Sentencing issues

Sometimes the sentence handed down by the Court is not what appears on the prison’s record. If you think the sentence is wrong you can challenge it.

Legal Aid

Legal Aid (subject to a means test) may be available so that you will not have to pay for advice. If you are not eligible for Legal Aid there are private payment options that can be discussed.
