Prisoner Rescue Group


Philip was very helpful with everything we needed to get my boyfriend out of prison and we greatly appreciate everything he did for us. Thanks again Phillip


I was sentenced to 2-6 years in New York State Prison and just got released in April 2020 on early Parole. I would never have been released if it wasn’t for the knowledge, guidance and experience of Philip Teplen at The Prisoner Rescue Group! He coached me on all aspects of prison and personally made sure I was prepared for my parole board hearing. I absolutely would not have been able to do this alone, as I saw many men I was incarcerated with try to do just that and sadly they just end up doing more time behind bars away from family and friends. Philip was not only a professional towards me and my family during the hardest time of my life but a guardian angel as well looking over me. I am blessed to have met him and honored to now call him my friend. So thank you Philip for all you have done for me during this journey, I’m forever greatful!!


Getting my good friend ready for a parole hearing and a early parole has certainly been a "labor of love". Prisoner Rescue Group and Philip Teplen provided me with the insight of what my friend was going through while serving time, as an inmate in protective custody. He has the Head and Heart to effectively communicate to the inmate and support circle of family and friends. Philip knows what to say, and when to say it. He prepares the inmates that he works with in the same manner. You will not be disappointed with the knowledge, assistance, and results that you will receive, when working with Philip Teplen and the Prisoner Rescue Group. Many THANKS and KUDOS for a job WELL DONE!


Philip Teplen and Prisoner Rescue aided me in preparing a summary packet of information submitted prior to being sentenced a DUI arrest that I was assured would have amounted to many moths (up to a year) in prison. In addition, Philip's coaching enabled me to verbally impress the judge so much that he granted me house arrest (for 30 days), rather than barbed wire. I will always be thankful for Philip's professional knowledge, dedication and availability. Thank you


I have recently worked with Philip through the parole process for my fiance. The parole process is an emotional rollercoaster for the inmate and the loved ones involved. Not only did he coach my fiance through this stressful ordeal, he also guided his supporters. Philip is there not only for the inmates, but for the family and friends too. He calmed my worries, walked me through the process, and helped me with writing my support letter. Philip is very knowledgeable and experienced to help with all prisoner's needs. I highly recommend Philip.


Over 30 years, assisting inmates as Chaplain for NYS DOCCS, I have never experienced a more important and needed support service as Prisoner Rescue. Philip Teplen provides extraordinary knowledge, dedication and compassion to inmate issues. A true value for the inmate and their family.


I recently made my Merit Board for Parole. I had already accepted the fact that I was not going to be approved. Then I was introduced to PhilipTeplen by a friend of mine who had just made Parole. Just make the call, I did. After speaking with Philip I realized I Could do it with his guidance and coaching . The best choice for preparing for your Board! The coaching was unbelievable, and is why I made my Board. Would have responded all the wrong ways. Thank You Prisoner Rescue!


I recently told 2 friends about Prisoner Rescue. Both of them were doubtful that they would make their merit board. Phil Teplen helped them prepare a detailed inmate statement, coached them through the whole process and performed a mock interview. They both got approved! Phil is the man! Don’t just listen to your counselor at the jail. Listen to Phil.


I recently worked with Philip Teplen on a successful effort to obtain an early release parole. I am very impressed with Mr. Teplen's professionalism and his knowledge of the system. There is no doubt that Philip Teplen was instrumental in gaining a release for this family friend. As an experienced attorney, I highly endorse and recommend Prisoner Rescue. 


Philip’s knowledge and professionalism was extraordinarily helpful in my successful Parole Board appearance. I could always rely upon obtaining his prompt thoughtful help. I hugely recommend Prisoner Rescue.
