Testimonials

"I was convicted of a f1 conspiracy to robbery and a m2 simple assault 20 years ago. When I decided to pursue a pardon and began my search for attorneys I came across the website of John della rocca. From our initial conversation I could tell he was extremely knowledgeable and experienced regarding the pardon process. His tenacity was also evident, and the last thing you want is a "sheepish" attorney representing you. His prices were reasonable and he was very responsive.

The whole process took about 5 years. I didn't realize how well of a choice I made until my hearing before the board. Attorney della rocca was different from the other candidates' attorneys. The way they were not prepped as well as I was prepped for the hearing. Even listening to the other candidates attorneys' closing statements I could see a clear difference. They were not articulate, lack substance, and lacked tenacity. On my behalf John's statement to the board was quick but full of substance and valid points, unlike the cookie cutter "thank you for the opportunity etc.." of the other attorneys.

When I received the signed pardon from the governor in the mail it was accompanied by the original letter John wrote and submitted with my application. I had never read it until then and at that moment i saw why I made it through the first stages of the process. The letter was articulate and organized well. It made clear valid points in a systematic format that laid out my needs and achievements to the board and was done with strong emphasis.

I couldn't have made a better choice hiring attorney Della Rocca. The difference in service I received from him is un-paralleled if your considering a applying for pardon. Don't do it alone and dont hire anyone else"

"I can’t recommend John Della Rocca highly enough. Some years back I was convicted of a felony intent to deliver narcotics charge. I have since completely changed my life for the better, and am a professional and family man. Still this conviction held me back in many aspects of my life. John was extremely empathic to my situation, and took the time to understand my story. He was an outstanding coach and walked me through each step as I petitioned the Governor for a pardon. In the end, John helped me achieve clemency and allowed me to begin my life anew. Thank you, John!"
