North Carolina Prisoner Legal Services, Inc. (NCPLS) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) law firm located in Raleigh, NC. Our lawyers serve the almost 40,000 men and women incarcerated by the North Carolina Department of Correction. We also monitor conditions in county jails throughout the state. Our core mission is to protect our clients' constitutional rights by challenging illegal convictions and sentences and by ensuring safe and humane conditions of confinement.
In addition to litigating our clients' cases in state and federal courts, we also provide inmates with general information and advice concerning legal rights and responsibilities, work towards administrative resolutions of legitimate problems, and provide information to discourage pursuit of unnecessary litigation.
