“You can judge a society by how well it treats its prisoners.” (Dostoyevsky, The House of the Dead)
The relationship a prisoner has with our legal system does not stop after being sentenced. There are 14 prisons currently operating in Ireland with the reality that prison conditions can vary between one prison and another. No matter the prison, nor the crime for which a prisoner has been sentenced, we are in a position to offer our advice and services. We fully endorse the following comment of Edwards J. in the decision of Devoy v Governor of Portlaoise Prison
“…among the residual constitutional rights of a prisoner which are not abrogated or suspended is the right to be treated humanely and with human dignity.”
At McIntyre O’Brien Solicitors, we can advise and represent prisoners in respect of the following prison law matters:
At McIntyre O’Brien Solicitors, we have a simple outlook which is never to forget, no matter the crime, that a prisoner does not stop being a human being and the loss of liberty does not mean the loss of all rights.
If you require any advice in respect of any prison law matter, either for yourself or for someone on your behalf, please contact us at 0749725105 or please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
