Many people who are eligible for parole have questions about how an attorney can help your chances of being granted parole. A parole board must decide when the offender serving his or her prison sentence is a good candidate for community release.

  • Tell your parole lawyer about the offense for which you're serving time now. Share the facts of the case, victims, persons involved, including co-defendants. Summarize this information in written form to make the best use of your time with the parole attorney.

  • Recap what happened at your trial, including plea offer negotiations prior to trial. Let your parole lawyer know how you've adjusted to prison. Tell him about your disciplinary history, custody levels, unit assignments, classifications, and job assignments.
