The Illinois Constitution, article V, §12, provides the Governor pardon power. Under Illinois law, the Illinois Prison Review Board receives and processes all requests for executive clemency and then makes a confidential recommendation to the Governor. A pardon itself does not remove or erase your conviction, nor does it make you "innocent." However, a recipient of a pardon is typically considered "forgiven" for the crime, and can be relieved of legal penalties and disabilities incurred due to the conviction. There are different types of Executive Clemency that the Illinois Governor can convey that provide and restore different kinds of relief from the conviction. If your case isn't eligible for expungement, sealing, or a certificate of sealing, the good news is that all cases are eligible for pardon or executive clemency in Illinois.
Everyone with a criminal conviction in Illinois is eligible for Executive Clemency or Pardon in Illinois. Anyone except for those convicted in another state or convicted of federal offenses can apply to have their case reviewed by the Prison Review Board for a recommendation to the Governor. However, if you are eligible for expungement, sealing, or a certificate of sealing, we would recommend you pursue those record clearing avenues before seeking a pardon.

We start the same day you sign up. Having handled more than 15,000 cases successfully, we know how to get records cleared as fast as possible. The process to receive Executive Clemency or Pardon in Illinois is very lengthy. The process takes at least 12 months, although they generally take several years. Each case is different and the Prisoner Review Board and Governor have complete discretion over the process. The length of time it takes will also depend on the amount of applications the prison Review Board is processing at any given time. It’s best to get your case started right away so you can obtain relief as soon as possible.
Because pardons can take several years to receive an answer, our representation ends after the standard hearing in front of the board that considers pardons (we charge an additional fee to attend this hearing with you). If we can, we will still provide support after the hearing, although this would require a separate agreement and potentially an additional fee.
Our fee is broken into two parts. The first fee covers the application. We will obtain the application and any necessary court records on your behalf, prepare and review the application, and file the application with the Prisoner Review Board. If you choose to have a hearing with the Prisoner Review Board, there is an additional second fee for the attorney to appear with you at the hearing before the Board. It is not required that you choose to have and attend a hearing with the Prisoner Review Board. If you are granted authorization to file for expungement as part of your application, we will complete the expungement in court for you for no additional fee.
We also have a low-price guarantee. Just show us a competitor’s quote or ad and we will match it.
