Mandating minimum

We apply “game theory” where appropriate to devise solutions which are specifically designed to keep our clients out of court, when appropriate.We don’t want “clients” – We believe that the individuals, businesses and groups that we work with come as our partners, and leave as our friends.Mandatory minimum sentencing laws require binding prison terms of a particular length for people convicted of certain federal and state crimes.These inflexible, “one-size-fits-all” sentencing laws may seem like a quick-fix solution for crime, but they undermine justice by preventing judges from fitting the punishment to the individual and the circumstances of their offenses.Mandatory sentencing laws cause federal and state prison populations to soar, leading to overcrowding, exorbitant costs to taxpayers, and diversion of funds from law enforcement.Most mandatory minimum sentences apply to drug offenses, but Congress has enacted them for other crimes, including certain gun, pornography, and economic offenses.We do our best to be easy to contact, using state-of-the-art technology so our clients can access us whenever they need us.

Our attorneys, in-house CPA’s, and staff are flexible, proactive problem solvers.

We aim to become an extension of your team, and ultimately be thought as part of your extended family.

There’s no ‘i’ in JDKatz– We believe that to put your needs at the heart of everything we do, translates into your success, and we believe that your success determines ours.

It is viewed as a public service to separate these people from the general population, as it is assumed that the nature of the crime or the frequency of violation supersedes the subjective opinion of a judge.

Remedying the irregularities in sentencing that arise from judicial discretion are supposed to make sentencing more fair and balanced.
