To increase public safety and secure your rights and freedoms, the Firm has been working on meaningful criminal justice reform since it was founded in 2003.
We are currently working with an informal group of former federal prosecutors and senior government officials to advance federal sentencing and prison reform legislation:
- In the Senate, we are working to advance S 2123, the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015.
- To reform sentencing laws and correctional institutions, and for other purposes.
- In the House, we are working to advance HR 759, the Recidivism Risk Reduction Act.
- To enhance public safety by improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the Federal prison system with offender risk and needs assessment, individual risk reduction incentives and rewards, and risk and recidivism reduction.
- And we are also supporting HR 3713, the Sentencing Reform Act of 2015.
- To reform sentencing laws, and for other purposes.
Prior to this work, we were instrumental in getting the following criminal justice reform bills passed and signed into law:
- The Fair Sentencing Act of 2010
- To restore fairness to Federal cocaine sentencing.
- Signed into law by President Barack Obama on August 3, 2010, and became Public Law 111-220.

- To reauthorize the grant program for reentry of offenders into the community in the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, to improve reentry planning and implementation, and for other purposes.
