Why should i hire

charles carbone

for a parole hearing

or an appeal of my conviction?

  • EXPERIENCE MATTERS:

I have been going in and out of prisons as a prisoner rights attorney/advocate since 1994, now over 18 years.  My first parole hearing was in 1998.

 

  • IT’S NOT JUST A JOB:

My defense of prisoners is not a job for me.  It’s my life’s work.  I do it because I am personally committed to justice for prisoners.  I am not just earning a paycheck.

 

  • I TELL THE TRUTH:

I will always tell you the truth. I do not lie to clients or their families, nor will I sugarcoat your prospects or pretend that I can do things just to get money from you or your family.

 

  • I GIVE 100%:

I will visit you more than other lawyers generally do, and I will more thoroughly coach, advise, and prepare you more than other lawyers.

 

  • I KNOW THE PAROLE BOARD AND THE COURTS:

Few attorneys have the kind of relationship with the Parole Board that I enjoy.  I am a well-respected attorney both in the courts and before the parole board which helps my clients. I also know how the Parole Board and courts generally think, and can anticipate their concerns/issues.

 

  • COMMUNICATION IS KEY:

I will communicate with your family and you regularly to make certain you know the status of your case and to answer your questions.  I take this responsibility seriously.

 

  • THE QUALITY OF THE WORK IS EXCEPTIONAL:

The quality of my written work product, legal arguments and legal briefs is exceptional.

 

  • I TRAVEL:

I travel the entire State of California and have litigated in nearly every county.  If you are moved to a different prison at any time I will continue to represent and visit you.

 

  • IN FOR THE LONG HAUL:

If your case takes years to resolve, I will be there.  I do not give up on clients and have a long record of perseverance on difficult cases with the ultimate objective of winning your freedom.

 

  • I GET THE BIG PICTURE:

I know that results matter, and I keep in mind at all times your strategic objective of going home.  If that means creating a good record for an appeal, I’ll do it.  Or if that means seeing a few steps ahead on the “chess board” of getting you home, I’ll do it.
