Defense Strategies From Pretrial Through Sentencing

An aggressive defense strategy involves tirelessly preparing not only for trial, but also for the sentencing phase of the criminal proceeding in case a client elects to enter into a plea bargain or is found guilty following trial. In many instances, the sentencing stage of a client's case is the most critical part of his or her entire case, as this is when a judge must determine whether to send the client to jail and, if so, for how long.

The difference between being locked up for a significant time and maintaining one's freedom frequently depends in large measure on how well a client's attorney is able to demonstrate to the court that the client has taken the necessary measures toward rehabilitation prior to sentencing.

Attorney Richard L. Healy works hard to help the court fashion a sentence that will benefit not only the person being sentenced, but the entire community as well. He is also able to assist in locating resources needed to begin drug rehabilitation and/or treatment to hasten recovery from the debilitating effects of drugs.
