Skilled Executive and State Clemency Representation
If you have been convicted of a felony offense in state court, federal court or by a military court-martial, a pardon may be your only avenue of relief from the imposed consequences of your conviction. As a convicted felon, you are subject to a variety of “civil disabilities.” Under federal law, convicted felons are prohibited from possessing a firearm, even for recreational hunting purposes. You are also subject to a bewildering array of employment and licensing restrictions under state and federal law that may limit your employment options. If you are a non-U.S. citizen, you may be subject to deportation, regardless of any extenuating circumstances.
The process of preparing a persuasive federal or state clemency application is complex. At The Federal Practice Group, our pardon attorneys can help you navigate this complex process and draft a clemency application which clearly articulates why you deserve relief.
Our pardon attorneys bring to the table many years of experience from prior positions in the Office of the Pardon Attorney (OPA) within the Department of Justice (DOJ). Our attorneys know the pardon advisory process inside and out and understand the standards applied by DOJ when evaluating a pardon application.
