The federal prison consulting team at Zoukis Consulting Group is led by Christopher Zoukis, author of the Federal Prison Handbook, Prison Education Guide, and College for Convicts: The Case for Higher Education in American Prisons. Chris has over a decade of experience assisting federal criminal defendants preparing for a term of incarceration, as well as those currently incarcerated. If you need to prepare for prison, have a problem while in prison, or need help with reentry planning, Chris can help.


Zoukis Consulting Group


Federal prisoners and their families have a lot of questions, and often don't know where to get the answers. The Zoukis Consulting Group also offers consulting services for those going to prison, in prison, or getting out of prison, as well as resources for criminal defense lawyers and prison consultants seeking the latest resources and information on federal incarceration.

Christopher Zoukis


The Zoukis Consulting Group is led by Christopher Zoukis. Chris has 12 years of experience as a prison inmate. During that time, he primarily worked in the law library assisting fellow inmates, and wrote articles for publications such as Prison Legal News, Criminal Legal News, and the Huffington Post. He also earned both his Bachelors of Interdisciplinary Studies (business administration and legal studies) and Masters of Business Administration from Adams State University. In addition to this, he also earned a Paralegal Certificate, Advanced Paralegal Certificate, and Employment Law Certificate, all through ASU.


Chris is also the author of the bestselling Federal Prison Handbook: The Definitive Guide to Surviving the Federal Bureau of Prisons (Middle Street Publishing, 2017), Prison Education Guide (Prison Legal News Publishing, 2016), College for Convicts: The Case for Higher Education in American Prisons (McFarland & Company, 2014), and the forthcoming Directory of Federal Prisons: The Unofficial Guide to Bureau of Prisons' Institutions (Middle Street Publishing, 2019).


While a practicing "jailhouse lawyer," Chris assisted federal inmates with criminal appeals, civil litigation, and a wide variety of administrative law matters. In time, he gained significant experience with prison disciplinary, health services, educational, and prison transfer matters, among many other areas. Throughout this period, he also acted as a media expert on Bureau of Prisons matters. Notable media placements included USA Today, Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal's Market Watch, Detroit Free Press, and dozens of radio spots, including on the iHeart Radio Network.
