Sentencing Issues

Our attorneys possess an extensive knowledge of sentencing issues, including arguing mitigating or departure factors pursuant to U.S. v. Booker, 543 U.S. 220 (2005), 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a) and the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines.  We strive to put the very best case forward at sentencing, and have achieved stunning results for clients in sentencing, including securing sentences of home confinement or vastly reduced sentences for clients facing many years of incarceration. Notable successes of our attorneys in this area include U.S. v. L.F. (Northern District of Georgia 2008) in which Mr. Gillen successfully obtained a sentence of home confinement for a client who was one of the central figures in a massive mortgage fraud prosecution; U.S. v. B.K. (Southern District of Georgia, 2002) in which Mr. Withers helped his client, a local official, receive a sentence of home confinement in downward departure from the Sentencing Guidelines; U.S. v. S.F. (Eastern District of Virginia 2004), which involved the negotiation of a sentence of one year probation by Mr. Gillen for a client indicted in a complex internet pharmaceutical, FDA and RICO prosecution; U.S. v. A.N. (Northern District of Georgia 2008), a Medicare prosecution in which Mr. Gillen successfully secured a sentence of home confinement for his client, a former corporate executive; and State of Georgia v. C.C., where Mr. Withers successfully negotiated a sentence of probation for a local businessman who was charged with possession of 30 pounds of marijuana with intent to distribute.
