Sentencing

The Kingsbury Law Firm takes a comprehensive approach to the federal sentencing process. We typically spend extensive time with clients and their families to prepare a detailed sentencing memorandum, telling the client's story and highlighting the factors that a judge must consider in imposing a sentence. Called Section 3553 factors, these sentencing details include the circumstances and seriousness of the offense, the need for deterrence, the background and character of the defendant, and whether he or she is likely to re-offend. Thanks to mandatory minimum sentences and advisory federal sentencing guidelines, federal sentencing has become a highly complex undertaking. The knowledge, skill and experience of the criminal defense attorney can play an important role in minimizing the sentence received.


We also have extensive accomplishments in filing motions for sentence modifications under 18 U.S.C. section 3582 after sentencing guideline amendments are made retroactive.


Challenge Loss of Good Conduct Time (GCT)

Prison officials implement rules that are impossible to adhere to over time. Many violations result in loss of up to 54 days of good time. That's 2 months of lost wages, 2 months of no freedom, 2 months of a loved one still in jail.

Unfortunately, prison officials only have to prove that "some evidence" exists that the rule was violated in order to take good conduct time and/or issues other sanctions. However, prison officials must follow certain procedures to ensure due process was rendered. We are experts at reviewing the facts of a case and determining if prison officials did in fact violate the procedures and deny due process. If due process was denied, then that denial can be challenged in court. 


Inadequate Medical Care In Custody

We are very knowledgeable and experienced in resolving situations when inadequate medical care is provided while in custody. Our approach is client-focused, being first concerned about working to ensure that our client receives the medical care that is needed. Then we work on making sure the client is compensated for any injury as a result of not receiving the proper care. If you or a loved one is currently not receiving proper care, contact us by clicking on the link below. We have won major cash verdicts and obtained results such as termination of correctional staff and the repair of physically dangerous conditions within prisons.

Designation

Where a loved one does time can mean all the difference in the world, and truly be life-saving. Unlike other firms that publish "guide books" to prisons which are very inaccurate, the staff of the Kingsbury Law Firm is experienced and knowledgeable in what life "on the inside" is like, and the difference and nuances of each facility. Additionally, if a loved one is ill, you may need assistance obtaining a transfer to a facility that can adequately care for them, or your loved one may need a facility that offers a specific program such as RDAP. Many times, families just want their loved one to be closer to home to make visitation more frequent and less burdensome. We understand this.


Extraordinary Relief

Aside from writs of habeas corpus pursuant to Article 11.07 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure28 U.S.C. § 2241, 28 U.S.C. § 2254, or 28 U.S.C. § 2255, the Kingsbury Law Firm is experienced in litigating writs rarely used such as writs of coram nobis, audita querela, or prohibition. We are also versed on how and when to use writs of mandamus.
