The Federal Sentencing Guidebook
By Alan Ellis and James H. Feldman, Jr.,
The Federal Sentencing Guidebook is the first and only practical, easy-to-read resource to help people facing criminal charges in federal court understand the criminal process and sentencing guidelines.
Updated in 2008, the Federal Sentencing Guidebook now covers the major changes in federal sentencing brought about by the 2005 Supreme Court decision (United States v. Booker), as well as the more recent developments (Gall v. United States and Kimbrough v. United States).
The Federal Sentencing Guidebook is loaded with invaluable practical tips and articles designed to help attorneys and clients communicate more effectively and achieve lower sentences. Defense lawyers may wish to have several booklets on hand to give to clients.
