When Your Life And Liberty Are Literally On The Line

In felony and federal criminal cases, there's no margin for error when it comes to your defense. You certainly don't want to go up against the big guns on your own, nor do you want to hire a lawyer who is inexperienced with the intricacies and nuances of defending a felony case in state or federal court. The state and federal government have vast amounts of resources to use in developing their case against you. You need someone who can combat the prosecution's efforts.

Felony convictions can have severe short-term consequences and catastrophic long-term consequences — your entire life is highly dependent on the outcome of this predicament. At Bull & Reinhardt PLLC, we understand the severity of your situation and will use every legal maneuver at our disposal to help you make the best of a bad situation and achieve the best outcome possible.

Mitigating Your Sentence

State and federal felony charges carry with them a host of potentially negative consequences — jail time, prison time, fines and restitution, and the loss of other civil rights (such as the right to own a firearm or the right to vote and negative immigration consequences, including deportation).

A dispositional range — the potential length of the sentence a court may impose — is also given to every felony charge. Depending on the severity of the charge, the existence of any aggravating factors and your record, the court will assign one of three dispositional ranges for each class of felony — a presumptive range, an aggravated range and a mitigated range. An experienced criminal defense attorney will understand how to take the facts of your case and argue for the least severe punishment possible.
