Federal Sentencing Advocates
Criminal Defense Team for Federal Crimes
Few people grasp the importance of a sentencing hearing and its procedures. Sadly, this applies to many lawyers as well. You need to find a qualified defender, someone who will make sure you are aware of your rights. Otherwise, you could end up with a harsh plea bargain, or you could head into trial not knowing exactly how severe your sentencing could be. At Federal Trial Law Group, we have knowledgeable and accomplished attorneys available to support you in your sentencing process.
As aggressive and compassionate sentencing advocates, we aim to:
- Inform you of the sentencing procedure
- Advise you of your rights
- Fight to negotiate a fair and favorable outcome
- Explain your options clearly so as to help you choose whether or not to go to trial, accept a plea bargain, or follow a more appropriate course of action.
Facing a criminal charge should not mean facing the unknown. Our federal criminal defense lawyers are committed to ensuring that our clients are always informed about the details of their cases and their rights under federal law.

Did you know that mandatory federal sentences are not really mandatory?
Federal sentencing guidelines call for severe penalties, including mandatory minimum sentences. However, a 2005 U.S. Supreme Court ruling determined that mandatory minimum sentences are "advisory." Because of this, judges have the discretion to choose an entirely different sentence instead of going by the sentencing guidelines. They can escalate the penalties for any aggravating factors, or they can order a more lenient sentence due to mitigating factors. This gives room for our skilled advocates to convince a judge to lower a sentence, and if it is strategic, to even keep a defendant out of prison through a plea deal.
