Federal Sentencing Tips


Views from the Bench on Sentencing Representation – Part 11

Some of the more interesting insights that I’ve received from judges whom I’ve interviewed for this series have come from those who were criminal defense lawyers. This article focuses exclusively on the information shared by four judges with the unique perspective of both the stage manager and the audience.

(1) Judge Robert N. Scola, Jr., from the Southern District of Florida in Miami
(2) Judge Amit P. Mehta of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in Washington
(3) Chief Judge James K. Bredar
(4) Judge Paula Xinis, both of the U.S. District Court for Maryland

Chief Judge Bredar sits in Baltimore; Judge Xinis in Greenbelt.
