News: George Burbidge's Client Granted Clemency by President Obama
C&J attorney George W. Burbidge II recently obtained a significant reduction in his client's prison sentence after filing a clemency application on his client's behalf. George's client, who was serving a life sentence on methamphetamine-related charges, was granted clemency by President Barack Obama last week as part of the President's ongoing efforts to commute the sentences of certain non-violent drug offenders. As a result of George's efforts, George's client will be released from prison on August 3, 2018. According to George, his client "seemed a little subdued and a little surprised [after hearing hearing he had been granted clemency], but [that his client was] also very grateful that he's going to be given another chance. All of a sudden there's hope. All of a sudden this isn't something where he's going to die in prison without ever having a chance to spend time with his family and get back and be productive again." Congratulations George on obtaining this life-changing result for your client.
