It is hard when your loved one is incarcerated. Many families take refuge in the idea that they will have a chance to reunite with their loved one once they have served their time.
Tragically, due to the negligence of the private prisons that make a fortune keeping people behind bars, many families never get the chance to have that reunion and reconciliation. Alford & Clark know that your loved one, incarcerated or not, deserves respect.
Alford & Clark are here for you during the most difficult times, and have the experience to help you get the justice that both you and your lost loved one deserve.
Incarceration for profit is on the rise.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Texas has the second largest prison population in the country, surpassed only by the Federal Bureau of Prisons for the entire nation. As of December 31, 2014, the state of Texas held 166,043 prisoners under its jurisdiction. Of those, Texas contracted with the private prisons to hold 14,368 individuals. The Federal government likewise contracts with the private prisons, who held 40,017 inmates under BOP jurisdiction as of December 31, 2014.
Since 1999, the size of the private prison population has nearly doubled, growing 90% from 69,000 prisoners in 1999 to 131,300 in 2014.

The operation of these privately owned and operated prisons, which profit handsomely from your tax dollars, takes place largely out of the public eye. The public, and the vast majority of attorneys, have little to no understanding of how these prisons are regulated or how the law holds them accountable for failing to care for and protect their prisoners from harm.
