Being convicted of a crime is not the end of your case. In some respects, it is only the beginning. In federal cases, the interplay between the United States Sentencing Guidelines and the range of sentences authorized by the crime of conviction make it extremely important that you are represented by an attorney who knows the law and how best to present your case to the court to try and secure you the shortest possible sentence. In addition, your attorney must make all possible arguments on your behalf so that they are “preserved” for appellate review.
