What Is a Governor's Pardon?
Executive clemency, or Governor's pardon, can restore all rights and privileges that you have lost as a result of any and all past criminal convictions. A Governor's Pardon may simply forgive past criminal conduct to restore your rights and privileges, and/or it can restore your right to possess a firearm and/or it may make it possible to have your criminal records expunged and sealed.
What Can Warren J. Breslin Do for You?
The decision on whether or not to grant a pardon is solely at the discretion of the governor. Warren J. Breslin will guide you to gather evidence of achievements and mitigation that he will attach as exhibits to your professionally prepared petition. Evidence of hardship due to having a criminal record and evidence of maturity and lifestyle change that demonstrate a low recidivism risk will enhance the likelihood that your petition will be granted.
Your petition will be delivered to the Illinois Prisoner Review Board that will make a recommendation to the governor. It is most important that your petition be compelling due to the discretionary nature of the decision and the volume of petitions received. This may be the only chance you get, making it that much more important to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney with a track record of successful clemency petitions.
