Preparing for Sentencing in Your Federal Criminal Case

After you’ve been convicted of a federal crime, you’ll need to prepare for sentencing. You will appear before the same judge who oversaw your trial and will need to convince him or her that you deserve a favorable sentence. Your federal criminal appeals attorney will work alongside you to develop an approach that will give you the best shot at achieving your desired results. If you were not pleased with your attorney’s performance during your trial, this would be the time to find new representation. Bringing in a new attorney may help you by providing a fresh perspective, opening up more legal options. If you’re looking for a new defense lawyer to represent you in the post-conviction stage of your case, contact the team at Grabel & Associates. Our proven results showcase our dedication and skill level, making it easier for you to trust your future to our seasoned lawyers.

Federal Criminal Appeals in Michigan Cases

If you believe you received an unjust outcome in your federal criminal case due to legal error, you may want to consider appealing the judge’s verdict. An appeal is not a rehearing of evidence, but a reviewing of legal procedure. Your trial attorney may prepare your notice of appeal and briefings, or you may hire new representation for this portion of the case. You may even be able to claim ineffective assistance of counsel if your previous lawyer did not meet the reasonable standards set for an attorney in your district. If you have questions about your trial and if you are wondering whether an appeal may be a successful route for you to take, contact Grabel & Associates. Our team is willing to do their homework and review both the details of your case, as well as the surrounding laws, to determine the best course of action for you in the post-conviction stage of your federal criminal case.
