About Us

CPCPL is a non-profit law office, established to represent indigent death-sentenced men and women in Louisiana. The Director is Gary P. Clements and Matilde J. Carbia is Deputy Director. CPCPL teams provide direct representation, pursuing collateral relief in capital cases in state and federal post-conviction. In addition, the office is responsible for securing counsel for all death-sentenced indigent persons in post-conviction in Louisiana, and for providing assistance to law firms who are currently representing capital post-conviction clients pro bono.


The office employs a client-centered, team approach; all staff members are expected to participate at every stage of the case. Currently, CPCPL has a staff of twelve plus two to three full-time interns, most of whom are international law students or attorneys. The offices are in downtown New Orleans. CPCPL provides substantial training to all staff, including attendance to at least one conference per year. 


A Senior Staff Attorney position requires a lawyer with five or more years’ experience representing death-sentenced persons, capital litigation experience, familiarity with federal habeas jurisprudence, and demonstrated skills in the investigation and presentation of mitigating evidence. The Senior Staff Attorney maintains an active caseload, as a member or leader of client-centered teams.
