Sentencing Is One of the Most Important Days Of Your Life — Let Us Help You
Spending several years helping clients obtain the least damaging sentences in federal criminal cases, our Texas-based sentencing consulting attorney not only recognizes the obstacles you face but can also help you strategically overcome them.
Attorney Seth Kretzer has a strong command of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and can help you understand how they will apply to your case during your sentencing. He will work to remove enhancements (factors that could make your prison sentence longer) that the Probation Department is trying to stick you with. Our team will develop arguments to persuade the judge to get you the lowest possible sentence.
Your trial lawyer may not have the tools to prevail in the all-important battle of your sentencing hearing. Don’t hire a retired probation officer who used to work with the same people who are trying to send you away. Hire an aggressive advocate who knows the sentencing guidelines like no one else.
One of the most important factors that will determine the sentence you receive is the presentence investigation report (PSI or PSR). This report is created by a U.S. Probation Officer who is assigned to your case to investigate every aspect of your conviction.
The comprehensive report will include your account of the offense — should you speak to the probation officer — as well as information regarding nearly every aspect of your life, such as your criminal background, employment information, family members, financial records, medical conditions, etc. Any discrepancies in the government’s version of your case and the probation officer’s investigation will be detailed in the report.
We are very familiar with the complexities of PSRs and the important role they play in sentencing. Our attorney can help you review your PSR and prepare for report objections, ensuring that your response is tailored so that your case is presented as fairly and accurately as possible to the judge.
