“Don’t you forget about me” (Simple Minds, 1985)
We do not just leave our clients to get on with life in prison once the Judge has passed sentence. We will not forget about you.
We believe strongly that prisoners should have access to expert legal advice to help them through their time in custody. We believe in giving prisoners a voice in the penal system.
FIRSTPRISONS has considerable experience in cases relating to prison law and prisoners' rights, and we have gathered considerable knowledge and experience.
You might be in prison, but that does not mean you do not have rights – let us voice them for you. Call FIRSTPRISONS, we will not let them throw away the key.
We support prisoners throughout their sentence. We challenge poor conditions and medical issues. We support prisoners through the parole process. We provide representation, especially at disciplinary hearings. We ensure that a prisoner's categorisation is appropriate. We can help with parole hearings, Home Detention Curfew applications and temporary release on licence. We can do all this and more.
