Welcome to the Ollin Law Blog! Here we’ll keep you up to date on all the exciting news and developments from Ollin Law as well as regular posts about current affairs involving the justice system. As criminal justice reform sweeps the nation offering those with criminal records new options for starting fresh, we here at Ollin are here to help represent individuals with a host of services, including SB 1437 and parole hearings as well as innocence claims. So if you, a family member, or friend are in need of legal assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.
Founded by friends who grew up in some of Los Angeles’s most marginalized neighborhoods, we understand the importance of quality legal representation and the unique challenges faced by those from economically-disadvantaged backgrounds. We think that for the current wave of criminal justice reform initiatives to succeed we need a different type of lawyer, one focused on holistic and trauma-informed representation.
Our approach blends high caliber legal expertise with compassion and a personalized touch to ensure our clients feel comfortable and informed as they navigate the bewildering and constantly changing legal landscape.
Our attorneys are not only well versed in California law but are also on the cutting edge of advocating for a fairer more representative legal system that places rehabilitation and therapeutic approaches ahead of punitive measures and incarceration.
At Ollin our philosophy is “Healing Through Law.” We work with the understanding that the law can and should help those who have broken it or were wronged by it heal the traumas brought on or worsened by the criminal justice system. Because trauma is often passed down from one generation to the next, Ollin takes a holistic approach that encourages our clients to look at their legal situations from a wider perspective that considers their entire life history and familial patterns. As our mentor Father G. says: “If you do not transform trauma, you transmit it.” With these words in mind, our representation is personalized and centered on helping our clients identify their emotional and mental health needs so that they can live more fulfilling and meaningful lives.
Whether you are seeking to clear an old conviction, claiming innocence from being wrongfully convicted or are a relative or friend of someone currently incarcerated and serving an excessive sentence, we are here to help.
