Clemency Push Creates Huge Demand for Pro Bono Lawyers
June 2014 — The American Lawyer
Crowell & Moring is featured in this article as one of the law firms participating in "Clemency Project 2014." The project was created so that with the help of legal counsel, qualified federal prisoners can take advantage of the Obama administration's efforts to issue of executive clemency. "My hope for the project is that a substantial number of individuals that have had excessive mandatory minimum sentences will have a second chance at life," stated Susan M. Hoffman, Washington, D.C.-based public service partner who also serves on the Clemency Project's pro bono committee. In addition to Hoffman's work on the committee, this article also shines a light on the pro bono endeavors of Washington-D.C. based partner, Thomas (Tim) C. Means throughout the past decade.
