UnCommon Law

UnCommon Law’s mission is to provide access to justice and healing for
people impacted by incarceration. We deliver trauma-informed,
healing-centered mental health and legal counseling to help provide a safe
pathway home for people currently serving lengthy prison terms in
California prisons. We represent people in their parole hearings and
habeas petitions, and we engage in litigation and policy advocacy to
address systemic discrimination in the criminal justice system. We also
provide training for people in prison, attorneys, family members, and law
students in order to improve the overall quality of preparation for and
representation in parole hearings. Our clients cannot be released from
prison unless and until they have participated in counseling and other
training programs, and can show the California parole board they can
safely rejoin their communities. We help them get ready to make that
