Sometimes on appeal, the best way to get a case overturned is for re-sentencing. Our attorneys understand sentencing challenges in regard to the mandatory minimum and the sentencing guidelines and as a result of our knowledge, where have been able to successfully put forth substantial sentencing challenges on appeal and through post trial motions. There are circumstances when, despite an attorney’s best efforts, a person is either convicted of or pleads guilty to committing one or more crimes. In some instances, the defendant either seeks or requires a different attorney to try to obtain the most lenient possible sentence.
