Getting a second chance
Nearly 100 of our people have devoted several thousand hours representing clients through the Clemency Project. The nationwide U.S. initiative pairs lawyers with non-violent drug offenders who, had they been sentenced today, would have received shorter prison terms.
We represented five clients whose sentences were commuted by President Barack Obama. They are Tyris Ford, Rogel Grant, Christopher Hill, Axel Santo-Cruz, and John Winkelman. All but Ford had been serving life sentences.
