CASE REVIEWS Prisoner Connections, LLC offers comprehensive, lawyer-supervised reviews of the criminal cases to identify meritorious grounds for appellate and/or post-conviction litigation.

It was seeing inmates and their families taken advantage through the years working as a law clerk inside that drove me to create Prisoner Connections, LLC. I was successful in creating a legal team of dedicated, competent and ethical attorneys that directly supervise the paralegal work I do on cases; the same paralegal work I have been doing inside and out of prison for over 25 years. To keep your costs as low as possible, I and my staff conduct the initial case review and report my findings to the supervising attorney. The attorney and I then meet about the case, discuss and review my findings. The attorney will then contact the inmate directly, provide them with a hard copy of my case review report as well as his legal advice on how to proceed and the fee for doing so. We are usually able to save clients thousands of dollars in attorney fees by doing the case review first as this saves the attorney valuable time and resources in your case. Even if you do not go further with us, you will have a comprehensive case review summary and the attorney’s identification of meritorious grounds and the procedure he recommends to address those grounds, that you can use as you deem proper. Please visit our associated attorneys’ websites to learn more about them and their firms. I have provided a link to their sites on this website under the “Our Team” tab. In order to conduct the case review, we will need to obtain a copy of whatever court documents you and/or the inmate has including the transcripts from the trial or plea and sentencing. If the inmate’s appellate attorney has not sent them the “Record on Appeal” yet, tell the inmate to write to them and ask for it. If you are unable to obtain a copy of the Record on Appeal, we can access the court records on line in most counties. We will review the material sent to us and go over our findings with the supervising attorney. The fee for conducting the case review, meeting with the attorney and providing you and the inmate with a written report on our findings is $1,000 - 1,500 if the case was resolved by a plea and $1,500 - 2,500 if the case went to trial depending on the size and complexity of the trial record. You can make payments on the fee, but we must receive half of the total fee before work begins and the balance must be paid in full before we complete the case review. Typically, a case review will take from 6-8 weeks to complete. Additionally, the attorney will take case review fee you paid into consideration when setting his fee for representing you in your post conviction proceeding. Usually, we save clients thousands of dollars in attorney fees due to the work we accomplish through the case review process. If these terms are acceptable to you and the inmate, please contact us to make arrangements. Please note that we take case reviews on a first-come-first-served basis so your prompt action in retaining us is recommended. I regret to say that we are not in a position to offer pro bono paralegal assistance. Usually, organizations that do so are working under the funding of a grant or are public agencies funded by the government. I do not know of any law firm that offers pro bono legal services to those convicted of a crime. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. It is our pleasure to serve you and look forward to a positive result. Sincerely,
