Prison Law

Being imprisoned is stressful and daunting for both the person who has been sentenced and also for their friends and family. The feeling of isolation can be overwhelming.

Whatever they have been sentenced for, knowing there is a firm of professional solicitors to guard their interests will keep a light at the end of the tunnel.

If you instruct our specialist solicitors you’ll find they will visit your family member or friend who is in prison, listen to them, represent them and challenge the authorities’ decisions, when needed.

Your loved one will get clear expert advice and representation, whether they are long term prisoner or on remand, including:
Sentence calculations
Judicial Review Categorisation and sentence planning
Re-categorisation and transfer
Home Detention Custody (HDC) applications
Licence recall
IPP and extended sentences

Know your rights

The right to liberty is even more to those serving a sentence of imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP). Those who are subject to these sentences will however still need to fight for the right to Parole. If someone in your family is in the situation they will need a specialist to help make a strong case.

Sentencing issues

Sometimes the sentence handed down by the Court is not what appears on the prison’s record. If you or the person who is in prison think the sentence being served in wrong we can challenge it.


These cases can be dealt with a “no win no fee” basis.
