“Protecting your rights in prison”
Losing your liberty can place you in a vulnerable position and it is important that you are aware of your rights and entitlements whilst you are detained. You will need to deal with the Prison and Probation services as well as other outside agencies including the Parole board.
It is vital that your legal rights and liberties are protected and to that end we offer advice and representation in the following areas: Offences against Prison Discipline/ Adjudications, Parole hearings and license recall. Our solicitors can also assist prisoners with Delays in release, Assault by prison officers or other inmates and Discrimination whilst in custody.
The nature of your issue will determine the approach we take. We often start by trying to resolve the matter as quickly and efficiently as possible by contacting the prison directly on your behalf. However, we also seek to enforce prisoners’ rights through legal challenges.
