Recently a journalist working on a story about White Collar Advice asked me the following questions about Lessons From Prison. My answers follow:

Who should read Lessons From Prison?

Lessons from Prison helps people that do not belong in the criminal justice system. I wrote this book for people who believe that authorities should have charged them through civil proceedings, and not criminal proceedings–or possibly not charged them at all. The book will offer insight to non-criminogenic people, insight that a defense attorney cannot provide. In summary:

If you’re a professional, but you’ve been charged with a crime, you should read Lessons from Prison.
If you’re a business person, but you face charges for a white-collar crime, you should read Lessons from Prison.
If you’re an elected official, but authorities have targeted you for corruption, you should read Lessons from Prison.
If your career is in jeopardy because charges for a white-collar crime threaten your livelihood, then you should read Lessons from Prison.
If you think that you’re the target of a civil or criminal investigation, you should read Lessons from Prison.

Who should NOT read Lessons from Prison?

If you associate with criminals, you will not find any value in Lessons from Prison.
If you consider yourself a tough guy, you will not find any value in Lessons from Prison.
If you have many friends who serve time in jails and prisons, you will not find any value in reading Lessons from Prison.
If the concept of sentencing does not daunt you in the least, LFP will not offer any value.
If you think your attorney has all the answers, you should not read LFP.

What will a reader learn in LFP?

Lessons From Prison

Lessons From Prison

Readers of LFP will learn what it means to go through a government investigation for a white-collar crime. They will learn the importance of preparing an effective mitigation strategy to influence the lowest-possible sentence, and to enhance prospects for liberty at the soonest possible time. They will learn clear and proven strategies to restore confidence and to get back on track after a setback from the criminal justice system. They will learn how to succeed after a challenging situation.

Give four key point takeaways from the book:

  1. It’s never too early, and it’s never too late to start preparing for an earlier release date.
  2. Strategies to succeed after a white-collar charge are the same as strategies to succeed in business.
  3. Develop tools, tactics, and resources that will help you advance prospects for early release.
  4. Do not outsource all preparations and decisions to your defense attorney.

Who is the author and why are they an authority on this subject matter?

I am a graduate of the University of Southern California and a former financial services professional. A government investigation led to charges for violating securities law. Over time I became an expert on the subject by making a series of bad decisions, and a series of good decisions. In LFP, readers will learn from those experiences. I live by the motto, “We did the time, so you won’t have to.” Readers of Lessons from Prison will arm themselves with the information they need to get a lower federal prison sentence, to advance release dates, to accelerate possibilities to develop a career upon release, to restore their reputations, and to get their confidence back.
