We know what it is like to be locked up. It is extremely hard to get things done. The point of this exercise isn’t to list everything, but consider the following ideas:
1) Get reading material of all kinds, including books, magazines, periodicals;
2) Get help with administrative remedy requests, submitting them so as to defeat “plausible deniability;”
3) Get information on lawyers, to make an informed choice on retaining them, monitoring work and billings, dealing with attorney-client contract language, etc.
