When clients retain me to work as their prison consultant, they are making an investment in their future. Some people don’t fully understand the value that a competent prison consultant provides. They mistakenly believe that since they’ve retained a defense attorney, they do not need a prison consultant. They should ask their defense attorney what level of experience he or she has with regard to navigating a journey through federal prison. If the attorney doesn’t have that experience, they cannot replace the role of a competent prison consultant.
I distinguish a competent prison consultant from the man charlatans who brand themselves as prison consultants. Some people market themselves as prison consultants without the appropriate background. For example, I know some individuals who previously had careers inside of the Bureau of Prisons. Yet working as a prison counselor or a prison guard doesn’t qualify someone for to work as a competent prison consultant. Let me explain why.
A BOP staff person may be able to cite prison rules. Yet an individual doesn’t need a prison consultant to help him understand rules. Prison rules are easily understood. A competent prison consultant will teach a client how to succeed in spite of prison rules. Prison rules are designed to extinguish the human spirit, to limit family or community ties, and to preserve security of an institution. Few people know how to succeed in spite of those rules. A competent prison consultant will know strategies to navigate the federal prison bureaucracy that cannot be found in the boilerplate that former prison staff can cite
Besides former prison staff, many individuals who have minimal experience brand themselves as prison consultants. They may have served a few months in a single institution. Such minimal experience fails to prepare them to dispense deep advice about how to triumph over the challenges that a criminal conviction can provide.
Those who are looking to invest in a prison consultant should take the investment seriously. Do the due diligence because the prison consultant will offer prison advice of extraordinary value—if he is competent. Visit prisonprofessor.com, and Amazon.com to gauge the depth and breadth of my experience. Those who make those inquiries will see that no one is better prepared to dispense value as a prison consultant. Regardless of the client’s budget, I can help.
