Firm secures compassionate release for incarcerated clients

While the COVID-19 pandemic has affected all our lives, it has had an especially deadly toll behind bars. People in jail and prison are among the most vulnerable, and lack the ability to protect themselves by social distancing. Since the pandemic hit, associates Jacob Loup and Matt Wasserman have filed several sentence-reduction motions in federal court on behalf of pro bono clients who suffer from health conditions that make them particularly susceptible to COVID-19, winning the early release of Lea Ann Blystone and Christopher Reese.
