Lifer Law & Parole Hearings

We Will Protect Your Rights and Zealously Fight For Your Release

Senior Partners Richard and Katera Rutledge represent lifers and parolees across California.  They have done over 2000 lifer and parole revocation hearings combined, as well as numerous Writs of Habeas in State and Federal Court.

Rutledge & Rutledge has helped countless men and women earn parole grants at their hearings, obtain court orders for new hearings, and also have won release orders despite Governor reversals.  The firm writes Advance Hearing Requests pursuant to Marsy's Law.

Katera Rutledge gives seminars on lifer hearing preparation and you may download her free handbook.  Our attorneys are dedicated to thorough preparation for all lifer cases, including 3-Strikes.
