Gilbert LLP helps clients demonstrate to a court or hearing examiner that they are rehabilitated and no longer represent a threat to society, that they should not have been incarcerated in the first place, or that special circumstances necessitate compassionate release.  For example, since October 2019, Gilbert attorneys have won parole on behalf of four clients who had been seeking it for many years.

Gilbert attorneys are also working to file compassionate release petitions on behalf of several clients who have served lengthy sentences in prison and are now at risk for COVID-19 due to their age or medical conditions.

Finally, Gilbert attorneys are representing “juvenile lifers” – individuals who were sentenced for crimes allegedly committed decades ago, when they were juveniles – in seeking resentencing.  Working with a mitigation specialist and other experts, Gilbert attorneys work to demonstrate that clients have changed and no longer represent a threat to society and thus should be released from incarceration.
