    I agree with the other posters. This scenario is insane. The expected outcome is also insane. Stop setting this out on an unsecure public website. Get a consultation with an experienced federal practitioner. Good luck.

    I would expect that your attorney may still have your closed file and would be obligated to provide the information to you. But, lawyers do not keep files forever, so do this as soon as possible. Otherwise, as has been pointed out, an attorney being newly hired now will be able to get many of the pertinent documentation about your case. Get moving!

    I know very good criminal defense lawyers who are immigration attorneys. You may not need two separate lawyers. You should be able to find them in NYC. See a lawyer and get a referral to one.

    There is no doubt whatever that you should consult with local counsel who has experience with this charge and is well known to this court, and this prosecutor's office. I also believe that you should be represented by this lawyer to avoid pitfalls and to be certain you are dealt with properly as an individual so you have the greatest chance of having the case disposed of in a way that brings about no conviction of any offense, if possible.

    This sounds federal. That aside, I have represented people under these very circumstances, and some of them became CIs. Because it was early and they had much to share and do, they were not charged. That would likely never have happened for them if they tried to accomplish this on their own. There are agreements to entered into and much to do. DO NOT ATTEMP THIS ON YOUR OWN. Get to an experienced federal practitioner who has done before this alone. That may be the difference...

    Here is what I have learned by experience, when a family member comes to my office unhappy with the result obtained by another lawyer, the family member has, without exception, not been told the entire story by their convicted loved one. It is just the way it is. Perhaps the loved one did not fully understand the whole situation either. Here is what I have learned about public defenders and retained lawyers. The fact is exquisitely true that there are lousy public defenders and there are...

    Here is what I would like you to think about. The sentencing guidelines are only advisory. After the Supreme Court Case of Booker, the guidelines are no longer mandatory. People think that applies only to offense level, but it applies to more than that. IT APPLIES TO CRIMINAL HISTORY as well. The Criminal History Category IS ONLY ADVISORY. If you believe that the criminal history, as calculated, overstates the nature and extent of your criminal history, you may challenge that in your...

  8. How would you calculate the damages in a case that had many years of abuse financially, when there are multiple parties involved

    The mention of multiple parties being involved makes me wonder if you are asking about apportionment of losses and joint and several liability in either a civil or criminal context. The answer is that all parties may be liable for the full amount to be paid and the money can be collected form whomever has money. For instance, the idea that each party is only responsible for their fractional share generally does not apply there. The next important thing is that the losses (damages) need to be...

    Is this present case a FEDERAL drug conspiracy? If that is the case, then truthfully your husband faces serious jeopardy. The specific amount of time he faces is controlled by two things in particular: 1. Is there a statutory mandatory minimum sentence applicable?; and 2. What are the specific advisory sentencing guidelines? The good news about the first of these is that, just this week, the Department of Justice announced a new policy trying to make charging decisions to avoid...
