Our commitment to our clients does not end at the conclusion of criminal proceedings.
We have a well established department dedicated to prison law issues.
General Prison Law Matters
•Security Categorisation • Sentence
Planning • Prison Allocation & Transfers
Access to Information • Prison Visits • Sentence
We can advise you how to raise these concerns with the Governor, the Board of
Visitors, the Prison Service, and if necessary the Prison Ombudsman. Should your
concerns not be resolved to your satisfaction we can provide advice and assistance
in Judicial Review proceedings at the High Court.
If you are facing disciplinary proceedings because of alleged misconduct during
your sentence, we are able to provide advice and assistance as far as the following
matters are concerned:

advice in regard to their sentence and release. Where appropriate, we can provide
assistance in the following areas.

allocation of Lifers • Mandatory Lifer Panels

temporary licence • Home Detention Curfew
