In Georgia, every individual serving a felony sentence in prison is considered for parole by the time he or she completes one third of his or her sentence (Parole Eligibility Date (“PED”) is equal to one-third of the prison sentence). A decision then is made concerning his or her release date. (Tentative Parole Month or “TPM”). The case will be considered even if it is still on appeal.
The file maintained by the Parole Board, regarding any given individual, contains material obtained from law enforcement, prosecutorial agencies, court officials, Georgia Department of Corrections officials, and victims. This material is not necessarily favorable or current and it is unlikely that an individual would want it to be the only information reviewed by the Parole Board when deciding his or her TPM. Unfortunately, an individual does not have an opportunity to speak to the Parole Board before it makes its decision.
I can ensure that, despite not having an opportunity to speak, with our assistance your voice will be heard and that favorable information is shared with the Parole Board.
You do not have to be represented by an attorney to be considered for any type of clemency in Georgia. However, having Abbi, an experienced parole attorney, by your side can help your case tremendously.
For example, our law firm can help ensure that your file contains accurate and positive information, challenge inaccurate material, and request reconsideration of previous decisions
In addition to parole, our law firm defends all criminal cases at every stage in the process. From investigation through trial, appeals and habeas corpus petitions, we fight for your freedom.
Over the years, we have had the honor of defending hundreds of clients in court and parole hearings. Here are just a few things they have to say about us.
