Messages to the Office the Pardon Attorney (OPA) may be submitted via this form or may be directly submitted to USPardon.Attorney@usdoj.gov. However, please don’t duplicate efforts by using the below form and then also submitting the same message directly to the Office mailbox or you will prolong the time it takes for us to respond.
Your question or comments will be forwarded to the appropriate employee in OPA for a response. OPA does not handle state convictions (contact the Governor or state official), expungement (contact the judicial branch), or immigration issues (contact DHS-ICE). Any question or comment that falls outside of this Office’s mission will be deleted without a response.
This Office cannot respond to every item of correspondence that is submitted to us. However, every submission is given appropriate attention, and if it relates to a pending petition for clemency, it is also added to the corresponding clemency case file. If upon further review of your correspondence, we require additional information or a further discussion, we will be sure to contact you. Please rest assured that your voices and views are being heard.
