Federal Sentencing Advocacy Attorneys

Representing the rights of individuals facing federal sentencing

Due to the United States Sentencing Guidelines that apply to federal criminal sentences, defense lawyers may believe they have little room to advocate for their clients throughout the sentencing process. This could not be further from the truth, however, and it is important to have a lawyer handling your case who passionately and effectively advocates for your rights so that you receive a fair sentence. Attorney Paul Thomas is a former federal defender and seasoned attorney with over 25 years of experience defending the most challenging criminal cases. As a former Assistant United States Attorney, Felice Duffy worked as a prosecutor in the federal criminal justice system for ten years, participating in many criminal sentencing proceedings. Both are passionate about securing full fairness and justice through every stage of each of their clients’ cases—and sentencing is no exception.

If you are facing criminal charges or have been convicted, please call Duffy Law, LLC at 203-946-2000 to find out how we can assist you.

Ensuring that you receive a fair sentence

How you behave and the information that is brought forward at every proceeding—whether it is a detention hearing, plea agreement, or trial—will be factored into the sentencing in your case. There are many ways that a sentencing advocate can help you obtain a fair sentence throughout your case. Some examples of how to advocate for our clients include:

At times, this report will likely have information contrary to the facts in a plea agreement, such as naming you a “manager” in a conspiracy when the plea agreement states you only played a minor role. Additionally, the PSR may misrepresent your criminal history.

In such instances, a qualified sentencing advocacy attorney can object to the factual contents of the PSR and request a hearing to ensure the report contains correct information so that you are represented in the best light.

Furthermore, an experienced sentencing advocate knows that the sentencing guidelines are advisory and that certain statements to the judge can help result in a lesser sentence. Presenting compelling reasons why you deserve a lesser sentence can be extremely persuasive and can result in a more favorable outcome for you.
