Our History at Prisonology

Shortly after retiring from the Federal Bureau Of Prisons, Jack Donson met Walt Pavlo, a contributor at Forbes.com and speaker on white collar crime issues.  Jack reached out to Walt after he read a Forbes article caught his attention.  They met in what is now our New York Office. Walt was surprised about the number of people releasing from prison who suddenly claimed to be BOP “experts”. It wasn’t long before Walt understood that serving time doesn’t make one an expert.  They formed a business relationship and eventually collaborated to develop Prisonology.

At the time of his retirement, Jack had earned several national awards and served as a correctional treatment specialist, case management coordinator and correctional programs officer.  He was used as resource staff to audit facilities throughout the Northeast United States and participate on several national policy writing work groups.  What is unique about Jack is that while training staff and  auditing facilities, he always maintained a case load and continued to actually apply  policy from a field perspective.  What’s even more unique was his involvement with divers populations in minimum, low, medium, administrative (high security and pre-trial)  and witness protection program units.

With Prisonology, Donson has created a system and an unparalleled data base of information that attorneys and defendants can rely upon to make decisions when trying to navigate the complex policies and culture of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

We continue to add experts to our team who have specific government experience.  Donson and his team believes our team  provides clients with an assurance that they are getting the most current and accurate information they need when addressing issues of incarceration.

Donson’s collaboration with Walt Pavlo, Forbes contributor, speaker and author, was the core to create our firm of nationally recognized experts on BOP and US Probation policies.
