Federal Sentencing Attorney

Federal Sentencing Attorneys

Penalties for many federal crimes are very stringent. If you have been convicted of a federal crime and your attorney does not have significant experience with or knowledge of federal sentencing law, you should consider hiring a different lawyer with experience in federal sentencing law before the sentencing takes place.

Our firm has both significant experience and knowledge of federal sentencing law and we can positively frame your circumstances before the judge. In addition, recent court decisions have allowed us to be even more effective in these matters.

The Supreme Court’s landmark 2005 decision in U.S. v. Booker, took the ‘mandatory’ out of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines and essentially changed that word to ‘advisory'. However, even before Booker, having an attorney who knew and understood the federal sentencing law could have a significant impact on the sentence handed down and where that sentence would be served.

Now, instead of merely going by a defendant’s ‘score’ on a grid, judges are free to consider personal factors such as the history and characteristics of the defendant, including family situation, age and health concerns, and more. The experienced attorneys at Sherman & Sherman Law know how to take advantage of these new opportunities.

Our attorneys are creative in developing alternative sentencing options and can persuasively argue mitigating circumstances on behalf of our clients. We have established an excellent reputation and have a history of producing very favorable results for our clients at sentencing.

If you are facing a federal sentencing hearing, don’t take any more chances. At the law firm of Sherman & Sherman, we are only interested in obtaining the best possible results for our clients. Contact us today to find out how we can assist you in your case.
