Our Work

What We Do

Through our advocacy and educational efforts, we strive to reduce the number of adults and children entangled in the criminal justice system. Visit our What We Do page to read more about the high-quality advocacy and training services we provide.

Why Our Work Matters

In January 2016, the East Bay Express ran a two-part series illustrating the arbitrary and potentially traumatic nature of California’s parole consideration process — and how UnCommon Law makes a difference. Visit our Why Our Work Matters page to access links to these articles, and to view related videos featuring our Executive Director Keith Wattley, our client Troy Williams, and our client Damien Johnson’s mother Ann Johnson.

Why Your Support Matters

The team at UnCommon Law is truly UnCommon in its personal, comprehensive, and long-term approach to advocacy. We are a small but mighty team, and we cannot do what we do without ongoing community support.
