YouTube Video: White Collar Week Speaker: Margaret Love, Former US Pardon Attorney, Executive Director of Collateral Consequences Resource Center, Tues., Aug. 8, 2023

We were honored to have Margaret Love as the August speaker in our White Collar Support Group Tuesday Speaker Series.

Information about our White Collar Support Group:

Margaret Love specializes in executive clemency and restoration of rights, sentencing and corrections policy, and legal and government ethics. She has written and lectured widely on pardon policy and practice, and on the collateral consequences of a criminal conviction, and is recognized as one of the nation’s leading authorities on clemency and related relief issues.

Ms. Love served as U.S. Pardon Attorney between 1990 and 1997, and currently serves as the Executive Director of the Collateral Consequences Resource Center, a non-profit organization established in 2014 to promote public engagement on the myriad issues raised by the legal restrictions and societal stigma that burden people with a criminal record long after their criminal case is closed.

Since leaving public office, she has successfully represented numerous individuals with federal convictions in the clemency process. She also advises individuals with state convictions who are interested in avoiding or mitigating the collateral consequences of conviction.

Ms. Love also represents clients seeking other types of clemency, including reduction (commutation) of a prison sentence. With the abolition of parole for federal sentences imposed after 1987, commutation is virtually the only way to reduce a prison term.
