Sentencing Guidelines

Criminal Sentencing Guidelines

Punishment for a crime will vary based on the type of crime, your criminal history and your unique case. A criminal defense lawyer can help you understand more about the classification of your crime and the potential sentencing.

There are often sentencing guidelines which ensure that consistent and appropriate punishments are dealt by the court. Crimes are separated into different categories based on their level of severity. Misdemeanors, which are generally considered to be less serious than felonies, are separated by classes, while felonies are generally classified by degrees.

Prosecutors fight with the weight of the state behind them. They are driven to prosecute. Our team is driven by our clients and their unique lives. Each has a family and a life to protect. We understand and empathize. We are on your side. We will fight the prosecution to the end- We are your fearless advocate.

Our strategy is to seize the initiative from the start, and never relent. What this means for you is that we will demand the government comply with the rules of criminal procedure and respect your constitutional rights. When the government fails to do so, we will file motions and put the government’s non-compliance before a judge. This strategy is what we call aggressive defense. This strategy over the years has proven to keep the government on the defensive and yields extremely favorable results.

We approach each case as if it is going to proceed to trial. This means we investigate the case fully and thoroughly to find all of the errors in the police reports. This is essential to developing our defensive theory. We will visit the alleged crime scene, speak with witnesses, research case law and statutes, file motions and argue the motions to a judge. It is through this process that we develop our theory of the case.

We are skilled and relentless trial attorneys. We have tried dozens of cases to a jury, including several murder cases. We have won Not Guilty verdicts, including Not Guilty in a murder trial where we used a self-defense theory. We will be prepared and ready for war should your case proceed to trial.

Please call us for a free consultation. We travel and fight in all courts. You will speak directly with our lead a attorney, not a legal assistant. We will discuss potential defenses to your case and we will describe how we can work together to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
