Governor Inslee Signs Pardon Orders For Two Robertson Law Clients
We are excited to announce that on March 13, 2020, Washington Governor Jay Inslee granted full and unconditional pardons to two Robertson Law clients. Ryan Robertson presented the client's cases to the Clemency and Pardons Board June 14, 2019, receiving unanimous recommendations from the board to issue pardons.

A "pardon" is an act of forgiveness, and the governor's power to pardon derives from the State Constitution. Pardons are rarely issued, and are limited to truly extraordinary cases. For our clients, these pardons represent recognition of their hard work to not only redeem themselves following their crimes, but to also give back to their communities. Their stories are remarkable, and we are excited to see what new opportunities exist for them now that their crimes have been pardoned.
If you have questions about the pardon process in Washington State, we are here to help. Please call Robertson Law at (206) 395-5257. Thank you.
