I have known Mr. Bales for several years and have worked with him for a few years. I have been to both his office in Maitland and work with him most of the time at his home office, . while there are many hours that I put in a week for the company, I am beyond aware of the hours Mr. Bales puts in working for clients and on cases. Not only do I return phone calls to clients, Mr. Bales always returns telephone calls to clients. I also work with Mr. Joe Gunja. I have seen with my own eyes the positive actions that both Mr. Bales and Mr. Gunja have accomplished. I have worked with them to accomplish many things for our clients.

I have witnessed Mr. Bales help clients with little to no money, such as Mr. M. Wade who was dying of cancer, he worked at no cost to put in a Commutation of Sentence successfully, and, thankfully, Mr. Wade is in remission. He has helped another Inmate, Anthony D., who had a sentence of 24 months with time credit and went into the BOP with 17 months left on his sentence. He is graduating with time off the RDAP Program and leaving the BOP in November into Half-Way House because of Mr. Bales intervention.

We have had a case recently where an inmate's wife has had bone cancer, Mr. Gunja was able to expedite his transfer within one week. I have witnessed this with my own eyes.

While most of our clients do pay a fee, there are times when someone cannot pay or can only pay very little and Mr. Bales will assist. I work with Mr. Bales who has a heart.

I've listened to Mr. Bales tell people many times that he can't "guarantee" or "promise" an outcome, however, he does go above and beyond with his time and the hours he puts in, way beyond what a client pays for. I have many testimonials to back up what Mr. Bales has done for his clients, and I will be happy to email them to you.

Today I sent out dozens of letters regarding this deplorable situation, I asked our clients to respond by making posts to various websites where this "so-called victim" has posted negative remarks about Mr. Bales. The "real" victim is our company and Mr. Bales. I can provide the copies of the lawsuit that the negative poster filed, where the poster lost their lawsuit. I know for a fact that this was the only lawsuit ever filed against Mr. Bales our company or employees. I am more than willing to send copies showing the poster lost in a court of law. We currently had an attorney contact the poster and the other person who filed suit to remove the negative comments that they posted going back a few years. They thought the matter was dropped, however, one continues to leave vindictive comments. When we requested via our attorney that they cease one one of the ladies did, however. They both offered to remove the vindictive comments. We are in possession of their response to do so.

Should you be considering hiring one of our companies, I can provide plenty of references from past, current, inmates and very reputable attorneys that I will be happy to provide at your request.

We have positive references and feedback on the following:!/FederalPrisonExperts?sk=info.

I am available should you have any questions regarding Federal Prison Consultants, Inc., Federal Prison Experts, Inc. and the services we provide. I enjoy working with Mr. Bales, Mr. Gunja and staff members who put their heart into trying to make a bad situation better. Mr. Edward Bales is the President of Federal Prison Experts, Inc., and has nothing to hide. We have made positive changes in our company and will continue to do so with our clients in mind.

Mr. Bales has shown me real concern and help while my husband was being treated unjustly in federal prison .They will take my calls at 3 am if i need them. Karen is a wonderful person to deal with and Ed has shown real concern.There are no guarantees when you deal with the fed's and i can understand disappointment when you dont get what you hope for. But Mr. Bales makes no promises he don't keep. He said he would do everything he can and he has he said he was only a phone call away and has always taken my call. To tear apart a mans reputation with false accusations to try and take all he has build is wrong.I highly recommend Mr. bales company and hope you look deeper in to why this person has filed this claim

I have been dealing with Federal Prison Consultants since 2007 when my son was sentenced to 20 years for a first time offense. He and his staff prepared my son's pardon request and are still working to find a way to resolve some issues we have with the federal system.

Mr. Bales and his staff have gone above and beyond normal procedures to assist me. They have always been very professional, but also very caring. I am still in contact with them today as they assist me on other issues concerning my son.

I have recommended Federal Prison Experts to several others who have loved one in the federal prison system and will continue recommeding them. bm

I've been a client of Mr. Ed Bales over a year now. In such time I have learned that Mr. Bales is a very kind hearted and caring man whom takes his job very seriously. He shows concern and is sensative to our needs going above and beyond what is required of him. He always returns my calls and emails. I have recommend others to Mr. Bales in the past with positive outcomes an will continue to do so. For this disgruntled person to just continue on and on and getting rediculous-get a life already! Perhaps there is a deeper issue underlying here... Thanks Ed for all your hard long hours you and the staff put into each case:)

Dear Mr. Bales,

I just wanted to thank you and your staff for keeping me informed on Artie Dufur's case. I have really enjoyed working with Joyce Maxie. Because of her professionalism and speedy response to any of my
concerns, I feel assured that Artie's case is being handled with much care and consideration. I appreciate
all that you have both done and are doing. I would recommend your company to anyone. Thank you

I hired Federal Prison Consultants almost two years ago. I have found them to be very
knowledgeable and very helpful and very passionate in helping people who are being
sentenced and have been in prison. Their compassion also extends to the families of

They always return calls and emails and they work very hard to keep on top of the case
they were retained. They are with you from the beginning of the sentence and stay with
you until the time has come for release.

Federal Prison Consultants also are here to help with inmate matters that require
outside assistance and know what is needed and who to contact to get answers from
the Dept. of Federal Prisons.

I have found Mr. Bales to be honest with me and help me when my family member
needs his guidance. It does help to have someone to talk to about the Prison system
and the answers may not be what we want to hear but what you will hear is, why
something is or is not possible and how to go about the best possible way to have a
case heard by the right officials so that the inmates best interests are being presented.

Sincerely, Pam B.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to recommend Mr. Ed Bales to anyone who might need
his services. After serving my sentence in the Federal system, I was transferred to a halfway
house in Cleveland, Ohio. The halfway house was a nightmare. It was filthy and
disgusting. Their claims of being a "reentry program" were not true at all. After
completing all my requirements to be eligible to go on home confinement, I was told they
would get to my paperwork when they had time. Time after time I was lied to and giving
false information. Even though I had done everything they had required of me and had no
incident reports in both Federal Prison and in the halfway house, they refused to complete
my paperwork to allow me to go home. My husband and I then enlisted the help of Mr.
Bales. After the first conversation with Mr. Bales, I finally felt relief that there was an
advocate for my situation. He made the phone calls to the BOP and discovered that the
halfway house was holding up my paperwork. He requested answers from the halfway
house but they were unwilling to answer him. He then contacted the BOP and made them
aware of my situation. He made many follow up calls, emails, and faxes and stayed on
top of the situation. He kept my husband and I informed of the progress. I was released 4
days later. It was such a relief to finally be going home to my family. I am confident that
had Mr. Bales not intervened, I would have not been released. My only regret is that we
had not contacted him sooner. If you find yourself or a family member in need of his
services, please take this recommendation into consideration.

Mr. Bales and his staff has always been RIGHT there when I needed information or any
consultation. They were very prompt with the e-mails that I sent out. And they have worked
closely with my family to make sure that I was always treated fairly in what ever the case
may have been. As I write this email, Mr. Bales and his staff are currently working on some
important things that are going on with my halfway house. I certainly put my stamp of
approval on Mr. Bales and the FBC.

Message: Good Day Ed:

I apologize for taking nearly a week to respond to your request. The new chemo and meds
really knocked me for a loop. I am just now able to sit up at this keyboard long enough to
finally answer your e-mail. I've got an idea: I'm going to send you a blank e-mail
and request that you write my testimonial for me. Mentally, I'm just not able to put into
writing just how grateful and blessed I am to have come under your kind care-- please express
for me what I feel and sign my full name attesting to it. Thank you so much Ed, and I
certainly hope I'm not too late to get onto your web page. I'm from Houston, Texas.

Sincerely, Maurice

I would like to take a moment and reflect on the accomplishments of Federal Prison
Consultants as it pertains to my case. I live in the state of Missouri and when I was
sentenced to 63 months for 1 count of Wire Fraud I consulted with the personnel at
Federal Prison Consultants to help me through the process of my prison time. They have been
very beneficial to me in the aspect of helping me with my medical issues and hopefully
accomplishing even more with time. I have had them file formal requests for me on my
behalf. I would highly recommend this firm for future use when you get into the situation
of having to do Prison time in the BOP system.

Thank You,

Mathew W.
