Federal Sentencing Representation

If you've pled guilty or been convicted of a criminal offense in a California federal court, your case isn't over until you've been sentenced. Federal judges now have a great deal of latitude in handing down your sentence, so you need a skilled defense lawyer advocating for your rights. An experienced California attorney from The Kavinoky Law Firm will devise a strategy to obtain the least-restrictive punishment possible in your federal criminal case.

Recent loosening of federal sentencing guidelines may help you to receive more lenient punishment in your federal criminal case. For many years, federal judges were limited by harsh federal sentencing guidelines that prevented them from taking mitigating factors into account when determining your punishment.

However, the United States Supreme Court has issued several critical decisions which have restored the power of federal judges to use discretion when handing down sentences in criminal cases. This is encouraging news for you as you pursue a more lenient sentence in your federal criminal case.

Because the federal guidelines are no longer mandatory, it's now critical to have a skilled attorney advocating for your rights during the sentencing process. Federal authorities will be pressing for the harshest sentence possible for you, so it's imperative to give the judge an alternative viewpoint and demonstrate why showing you leniency will serve the interests of justice.

Advocating for leniency at your federal court sentencing may require input from counselors, psychologists, and other professionals to demonstrate to the judge why justice will be served by giving you a less-harsh sentence.

At The Kavinoky Law Firm, we'll fight to get you a sentence that matches not the crime but you as a human being. Your case is not over if you are found guilty, or if you have entered a guilty plea - not by any measure. Consider giving yourself a fresh start at sentencing. Contact the Kavinoky Law Firm today for a free consultation regarding your sentencing representation in any of California's federal courts.
