For too long, effective criminal defense has been reserved for the fortunate few with deep pockets and the right legal connections. Manasseh, Gill, Knipe & Belanger, is the realization of the dream of a group of high profile criminal defense attorneys who knew there was a better way to protect the lives of every citizen; a way not just for celebrities and the super-rich, but for people from all walks of life.
Federal cases are just different. Diversion is noneexistant. Probation is rarely given. Even first offenders routinely go to jail for nonviolent crimes. Attacking a federal case and, in instances of a conviction, the mechanics of a sentencing hearing is an art form that is beyond the grasp of the standard general crimes lawyer. We have a team of trial lawyers who find their calling in federal court. If you are under indictment or have just received a “target later”, let’s talk and formulate a plan out of this nightmare.
When choosing a criminal trial lawyer, it is not the time to bargain shop. There are many professed criminal trial lawyers who have little or no jury trial experience. This can result in a wrongful conviction that sends an innocent person to jail. Fortunately, there are options available to free the wrongly convicted. One of these options is a criminal appeal. During an appeal, a qualified lawyer can review the court proceedings and challenge improper rulings by the court, wrongfully admitted evidence and illegally obtained confessions from your trial. At Mannaseh, Gill, Knipe & Bélanger, it is our job to get you out if you’re in and innocent.
