Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need an attorney at my parole hearing?
The opportunity to come before the Idaho Commission on Pardons and Parole does not come often. You should do what you can to ensure that your loved one has the best opportunity to win their freedom. We understand the process because we have represented dozens of Idaho inmates before the Idaho Commission of Pardons and Parole. The earnest advocacy of a dedicated parole attorney can make the difference between an inmate winning parole or being passed over. Your freedom is our goal.
What does McKenzie Law Offices do for its parole clients?
What we do for our clients is try to get them in the best possible position to be released on parole when they get before the Commission. Both our attorney and paralegal hold Juris Doctor degrees from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. One of our law school graduated staff will meet with our client at the prison. One of our experienced attorneys will represent our client before the Parole Commission. Specifically, we assist in developing a parole plan based on years of experience gaining successful results before the Parole Commission. We assist clients in finding resources for housing, employment, and treatment. Each person is unique and has unique needs and resources after incarceration. We help develop a parole plan that will get Commission approval. We also work with the inmate and coach them on how to speak to the Parole Commission. It is critical that an inmate know how to express himself to the Commissioners, who often have many questions for the inmate. Often inmates pick up speech and thought patterns in prison without realizing it, and they benefit from our experienced and objective help. We have dozens of years of experience both as prosecutors and defense counsel. We understand what the Parole Commission looks for and we put our clients in the best possible position.
How much will it cost?
We charge a flat rate for representation before the parole board of $1,500 to $3,500 depending on the facts of your case. If we have to travel to north or east Idaho for the hearing we typically charge an additional $500 to cover the cost. We charge $1,500 to prepare a self-initiated progress report. Call for our flat rates on revocations, commutations, or pardons.
