California Parole Suitability Hearings

Prior to being placed on parole, an inmate must be found suitable for release by the California parole board. When assessing suitability, the threshold question is, “Does the inmate pose an unreasonable risk of danger to society if released?” Having an experienced defense attorney advocating to the board during the parole suitability hearing makes all the difference. Not only will our attorneys assist during the hearing, but we will ensure that you or your loved one are prepared prior to the hearing by putting together a detailed release plan. Moreover, we have top doctors available for client evaluations to challenge negative psychological evaluations.

The board considers the following factors when determining whether an individual is ready for parole:

  • The inmate’s level of remorse for the crime
  • All of the circumstances of their offense
  • The inmate’s involvement in in-house treatment/counseling programs
  • The inmate’s behavior while in prison
  • Psychological and counseling reports
  • The inmate’s plans for how to successfully re-enter the community
  • Input from the friends or family of the victim

Our team knows how to address each of these factors when we represent a client. When it comes to parole hearings, we have a track record of success. In September 2016, we received a huge win when our client was found suitable for parole after spending 33 years incarcerated on the charge of murder. Turn to our firm for experienced representation at your parole suitability hearing.
