Parole Board Representation

The lawyers at Strom Law Firm also represents a client on probation violations.  Although parole and probation are terms often used interchangeably, there are differences between the two. Parole refers to the time period after a person has been released from an SC prison, but is still under the Parole Board supervision. Probation refers to a sentence wherein a person is under the supervision of the Sc Circuit court but did not necessarily serve time in prison. Both a term of parole and a term of probation generally require that a person remain free of trouble for the duration. There may be additional obligations or specific conditions to that person’s sentence, like checking in regularly with the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon Services or completing drug tests.

What do you say to the SC Parole Board?

You can represent yourself before the  SC Parole Board but the best lawyers agree that having an experienced attorney represent you improves your chances of release. Having an experienced South Carolina Parole Board lawyer that fully reviews your case and is fully prepared for your parole hearing is extremely important. What you may not know is that the SCDPPPS staff conducts an investigation and reviews each parole-eligible inmate case as long as six months prior to your scheduled hearing.  The staff’s results are presented in summary form to the members of the Board who will be present at your parole hearing. As part of our parole board representation, we work closely with our client’s friends and family to put together packages that demonstrate to the parole board reasons why you or your loved one should be released. Columbia SC, parole lawyers at the Strom Law Firm communicate with case managers and appear before the SC parole board. In preparation for a parole review, we ensure that every positive aspect of your character, behavior, and record is presented to the parole board. We also ensure that the Sc Parole Board review process proceeds as it should — with no delays. Hiring a Columbia parole attorney to represent you can help ensure that you are prepared to face and possibly obtain the freedom that you are entitled to.

If you are eligible for Parole in SC, we recommend that you:

  • make sure that you do not have any violations in your SCDC file,
  • have employment immediately secured upon your release, and
  • make sure that you have a stable home environment to return to.

What Is the Function of a  Parole Board?

The South Carolina Board of Paroles and Pardons is composed of seven members, one from each of the state’s congressional districts. All are appointed by the Governor, subject to approval by the Senate. They serve six-year staggered terms and can be reappointed. If vacancies occur, the Governor selects a replacement before the term expires. The positions of chairman, vice-chairman, and secretary are elected by a majority vote of the Board.

The Board is vested with the following statutory powers:

  • Granting or denying paroles and pardons
  • Revoking, modifying, or rehearing paroles
  • Making recommendations on petitions for reprieves and commutations referred by the Governor

Factors that the SC Parole Board may consider include:

  • the sentencing date of your crimes,
  • the crime you were convicted of,
  • your record while serving your prison sentence and /or probation,
  • your personal history,
  • victim impact and victim input (victims will be contacted and asked about your crimes).

While we receive most of our parole board representation requests directly from an inmate or his or her loved one, we welcome referrals across the state of South Carolina from other lawyers.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
