Note from Roger:
NEVER go before any legal proceeding or forum without counsel. Whether a parole presentation, before a Board Panel, or a parole revocation hearing in a county jail, I am uniquely qualified to fully represent your loved one. Place your trust in my special expertise and experience.
I carry a smaller caseload so that I may give your case special personal attention. I personally interview my clients. No assistants or paralegals do this critical stage preparation. I do not believe that proper representation can be accomplished with an impersonal approach. Your representation is personal and tailored to your specific needs. This is both a professional and a lifestyle decision. It works to the advantage of everyone concerned.
