Federal Sentencing

New York Attorneys Providing Aggressive Sentencing Defenses

Your federal case is not over when the jury sends you a verdict or you plead guilty to a crime. Sentencing is the next stage in the criminal process. During sentencing, the penalties you face will be decided by a judge. An experienced federal criminal defense lawyer who understands the sentencing laws can potentially shave years off a sentence and help avoid excessive fines.

Experienced, Tested And Proven Representation

At the law firm of Epstein & Weil LLC we provide skilled and knowledgeable advocacy for clients facing federal sentencing. Attorney Lloyd Epstein brings 40 years of experience handling federal criminal law:

  • He lectures on federal sentencing across the country, including in New York, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania and Washington state
  • He has handled countless criminal cases during the sentencing phase, successfully reducing prison time for many clients who came to him only after they were convicted or pleaded guilty
  • He has taught trial practice at New York Law School and City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law, drawing on decades of experience in federal criminal courts of New York.
  • He has extensive experience in federal appellate law, including appeals to reduce incorrect or overly harsh criminal sentences.

It’s this breadth of legal as well as academic experience that helps attorney Epstein to better advise and represent his clients during the sentencing phase of federal criminal cases.

Preparation Is The Key To Success In Federal Sentencing Matters

The federal sentencing statutes are complicated, but our attorneys can guide you through the process. One of the key tasks of your attorney during sentencing is to investigate your history and background to persuade the judge to give you a lesser sentence or deviate from mandatory minimum sentences under the federal sentencing guidelines.

At our firm, we perform comprehensive investigations into our clients’ lives. We speak with family, friends and co-workers so that we can give the sentencing court an idea of our clients’ upbringing and character. Our attorneys also work with psychiatrists, counselors and accountants to help us persuade the sentencing judge to issue a reduced sentence.

We were among the first attorneys to incorporate photographs into federal sentencing letters and recently created a video bio-presentation that resulted in our client receiving probation where all his co-defendants received at least 5 years in federal prison.  Whether you were convicted of a sex crime, violent crime or drug offense or pleaded guilty to a financial crime, we will explore every avenue to get you a shorter prison sentence and lower fines.
