Kurt has decades of experience and a proven record of success in getting pardons for clients. As a firm, we focus solely on redemption law because we’re passionate about helping people get second chances.
Why Apply For A Pardon?
Federal crimes take a hefty toll on your life. Even nonviolent offenses can have a lasting impact on your life long after your sentence is served.
In the federal justice system, there is no expungement or record sealing, except in very rare circumstances. You’re stuck with the conviction. The only avenue for avoiding the lifelong impacts of a federal conviction is to seek a presidential pardon.
Who Is Eligible For Presidential Pardons?
If you’ve been convicted of a federal offense, you can apply for a pardon. Generally, you must wait five years after your release or sentencing.
The strongest pardon applications involve a clear demonstration that you’ve turned your life around or that you got caught up in something that was much bigger than you.
You stand the strongest chance of success if you were convicted of a nonviolent offense such as:
- Racketeering/RICO violations
- Drug conspiracy
- Embezzlement, fraud, money laundering and other financial crimes
- Environmental offenses
- Trespassing in national parks or on federal land or other property crimes
