Pardons

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 and understand the standards applied by DOJ when evaluating a pardon application.
