Corrections of Illegal Sentences, Reduction, and Mitigation
Florida Sentencing law is constantly developing and evolving. Knowledge of applicable sentencing guidelines, statutory sentencing factors, and sentencing enhancements is a must for evaluating the legality and propriety of a sentence. Our firm has such experience. We have pursued and obtained relief from illegal, unfair, and improperly enhanced sentences, in numerous cases.
Pardons, Commutations of Sentences and Restoration of Rights
Clemency is a form of relief created to ensure that an individual is afforded every opportunity to obtain relief from a criminal judgment and sentence. This is accomplished by giving the individual an avenue to request that Florida governor’s office review his or her sentence or criminal history in pursuit of a pardon, commutation of sentence or a restoration of rights previously lost due to a criminal conviction. Our firm is here to provide individualized, personal assistance to those in need of pursuing these avenues of relief.
