Yesterday, one of my clients was granted clemency for a felony
conviction received when he was a young man. Illinois Governor Pat Quinn
granted 232 clemency petitions per the State Journal Register. The full
list may be found in a link embedded in the article.
It was a
long and arduous process for my client, who has led an exemplary life
since that time. I am pleased to have drafted his petition and appeared
with him before the Illinois Prisoner Review Board. The Board made a
recommendation to the Governor who granted our petition. It was a
wonderful result. Kudos to Governor Quinn for this just result.
