“Advice is judged by results — not intentions” – Cicero
I found Justin late one evening as I was searching the Internet for information on Federal Prison Camps. I had already hired a prison consultant to assist me with the process but I felt as though I was still missing something. I contacted Justin and he spoke with me for over an hour about a variety of issues that were troubling me. It was a breath of fresh air to talk with someone so knowledgeable and compassionate about my plight.
I knew after the phone call that I had to find the resources to retain Justin. He has generated a plan to allow me to be productive inside federal prison. More importantly, he has assisted me in developing a plan for my post prison life and the tasks I need to complete to reach my goals. Finally, he has eased my fears and the fears of my family as I tread through the Federal Justice System! All I can do is say Thank You from the bottom of my heart!
Retaining Justin has been one of the best decisions I have made. Justin has given me two incredibly important things: peace of mind and a plan. Before I retained Justin, fear and panic were two emotions I felt frequently. After a few sessions with Justin, fear and panic were replaced with knowledge and confidence. Knowing what to expect made all the difference in the world. Most importantly though, Justin helped me put together a plan that will allow me to thrive and grow while I serve my sentence. Before talking to him, my plan was simply to stay in shape, stay out of trouble, correspond with friends and family and read a lot.
As a marketing professional, I should have known better. These are “tactics.” What is my strategy? What are my objectives? Justin helped me to put all of this together and to be open to things other than just picking up where I left off when I finish my sentence. He also encouraged me to document my journey – both for myself and for others who might find themselves in my situation. So I started blogging and I will continue to do that while I serve my time at Taft. As I write this, I am only two days away from self surrender but it is a great comfort to know that I have an ally like Justin who will always be there if I need him both during and after my sentence.
The overall federal prison experience is surprisingly very misunderstood, and poorly documented.While there have been hundreds of thousands of people that have served time behind the walls of the various locations of the Bureau of Prisons, remarkably, few of them are capable or willing to provide meaningful consultation. Justin Paperny offers a unique approach to prison counseling convicted felons as they embark on their challenging journey through the federal prison system. Drawing from his own experiences and lessons learned, Justin has developed proven methods to mentor others as they prepare for their own treks. Justin’s proven system will not only help them survive, but can position them to capture some benefits to build on, from their own experiences. I know this first hand. I, like many other good people, made some dumb decisions, and wound up being a convicted felon. After months of research, I found Justin Paperny’s solutions to be most comprehensive and transparent. Justin helped me prepare and execute the following critical elements of my incarceration plans:
Developing Effective Communication Strategies for Family, Friends, and Business Colleagues
Self Surrender Checklists
Prioritized Lists of Commissary Purchases
Budgetary Discipline Strategies for Phone and Commissary Bank Accounts
Family Visit Watch Outs
Sustainable Physical Fitness Regimens
Do’s and Don’ts of Inmate Life
Personal Growth Strategies While Incarcerated
Post Incarceration Strategies
In addition, Justin facilitated a number of Q & A sessions with other clients. These sessions were invaluable in my planning efforts, and provided solid reference points for me and my family. Justin’s two books, ‘Lesson’s from Prison’, and ‘Ethics in Motion’ are must reads, as they provide case studies of many real life experiences. These real life stories provide a baseline for jumpstarting the required planning efforts to serve prison time with a purpose and with dignity. I highly recommend Justin Paperny’s consultation offerings to, not only those preparing to go to prison, but also to, attorney’s looking to enhance their client offerings, and concerned family members looking for ways to help their loved ones.
I will forever be grateful that my husband found Justin Paperny when he did. Justin has helped us navigate our way through impending court proceedings, sentencing, and preparing for a daunting federal prison sentence.
During this often times terrifying situation, having my husband leaving me and our young son for several years to serve time for federal healthcare fraud charges, Justin has been instrumental in helping my husband refocus his efforts and thoughts that truly created a shift in the outcome this event will have on our family forever.
With Justin’s programs and coaching, my husband was able shift his mindset to see this situation as a positive opportunity for growth for our family.
With Justin’s help, my husband is currently making the very best of his prison sentence and making the timework for him. Having the guidance of someone who had been in the trenches and come out stronger than ever has been invaluable. As a wife supporting my husband through this situation, Justin’s advice and resources have brought me much comfort and hope. Through Justin’s Private Facebook page, I have been able to connect with other wives, women and families that are going through very similar situations. Having a support system of people who are on similar journeys is so encouraging and refreshing. I know that our story is going to be one of success and I thank God that Justin has helped steer us in the right direction.
I am a successful Ivy-league educated lawyer and, now, as a result of some stupid decisions, a white-collar criminal. Because of my background in law, I came into the process thinking that I knew the ropes and didn’t need the advice of a prison consultant. On a whim, however, after coming across the White Collar 101 series on YouTube, I contacted Justin and was incredibly impressed by his useful advice. In one brief phone call, he raised many important issues that my lawyer had never mentioned and I had never considered, issues that could greatly impact on the length of my prison term, which camp I am placed in, and the quality of my stay as an honored guest of the federal government. With that, I was convinced of the added value Justin brings to the table and hired him as my prison consultant.
Justin’s commitment and focus is unmatched. He has guided me through the entire process with his insider knowledge and experience. Not least, he has managed to keep my spirits up and my hope alive during this difficult time. With his support, I have developed a plan to approach prison proactively: to document my experience, to keep in touch with contacts and loved ones, and to prepare for my eventual release. In short, thanks to Justin, I enter prison with hope for the future and a solid plan to make that hope a reality. I would encourage anyone who finds himself in a position similar to mine to reach out and contact Justin. You will not be disappointed.
In late 2013 I was indicted on 26 federal charges. The charges ranged from healthcare fraud to tax evasion. Shortly there after I began searching for knowledgeable prison consultants. I consulted with 4 prison consultants in all. Every consultant I contacted used the similar strategies.
The first proposed he was a miracle worker. He could reduce by 60-month sentence to a 22 month sentence with his exclusive techniques. The second told me to hide money from my wife, as she would be finding a new husband shortly after my incarceration. The third claimed to be an ex-DEA agent that knew how to manipulate the system to award probation.
The fourth told me that I needed to begin mentally preparing myself for prison, develop a stately and stick to it. All of the first three consultants turned out to be dishonest and fear driven. The fourth consultant was Justin Paperny. He was the only consultant that helped prepare my family and I for my upcoming sentence. I will be forever grateful to him and his team.
Thank you, Justin. You are an amazing person and I am so grateful that you are a part of my son’s life & support system. The advice & tools you provided him for his incarceration were invaluable. As he stated, he went in so prepared because of you. You continue to be there supporting him. I know the family would be in such a dark place about this situation IF it had not been for you & this site. A light now shines to help us find our way through the darkness. I watched every one of your videos before he went in & they are excellent with tons of information. I learned so much that has been helpful.
We as a family are so blessed that we found you & this site. I can’t say thank you enough. I highly recommend anyone facing these situations in their lives, to contact you. You definitely changed the situation for us. Wishing you the best of everything, always. From a very grateful Mom.
