The Sentencing Advocacy Group of Evanston is made up of founder Betsy Wilson and a team of experienced mitigation specialists and skilled records specialists. Our professional backgrounds range from law, social work, and sociology to criminal justice, business, and non-profit management. We regularly serve as faculty on national mitigation and death-penalty trainings and act as mentors to newcomers in the field.
Because of our extensive training and experience working with marginalized populations in diverse settings, Sage mitigation specialists are able to forge deep and meaningful relationships with our clients and their families. The entire Sage team is thoroughly familiar with the organizations that generate records concerning our clients and can obtain records that seem irretrievable. Mitigation specialists and records specialists are well-versed in the meticulous organization of all cases and, using cutting-edge case-management software, can generate reports tailored to specific case needs at a moment’s notice.
