COVID-19 Compassionate Release

In response to the unprecedented public health crisis unfolding across the country, Fox Rothschild's White-Collar Criminal Defense & Regulatory Compliance Group has assembled a COVID-19 Compassionate Release Task Force to assist nonviolent offenders in jails and prisons across the U.S. who are at an increased risk from the disease, with requests for compassionate release, bail, early parole and medical furloughs.

Close quarters, lack of access to appropriate health care and other considerations make this population particularly vulnerable to the spread of the virus. The team has already successfully navigated the early release of incarcerated individuals in New Jersey.

Marissa Kingman is spearheading our effort to track developments in the law nationwide, and we are working with the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and local affiliates throughout the country to ensure that we have a pulse on developments at the state and federal level.

If you require assistance with a compassionate release matter, please contact Matt AdamsMatt Lee or Marissa Kingman.
