Steven J. Weinberg has vast experience with sentencing issues that arise in both state and federal cases.
Sentencing hearings require that a lawyer present mitigating factors in the form of documents or live witnesses to the judge in an effort to get the best sentence for the client.
Mitigating factors are those items that cast the client in the most favorable light so that a sentencing court will be more likely to be lenient when imposing a sentence.
Sentencing hearings in federal court are complicated hearings where there is a need to address the advisory federal sentencing guidelines. Courts still rely on these complicated advisory guidelines to formulate sentences, so it is still necessary to have a familiarity with the guidelines, if a lawyer is going to get the best possible sentence for a client.
