Welcome!

It’s not been easy, I know because I’ve been there. I have chosen to gradually transition my practice away from patient care, to help you and your family as you go through this surreal, ‘Life-Altering – Event’. Dr. MB

In preparing for your sentencing hearing, an interview with a Federal Judge revealed that “it’s surprising how many otherwise competent attorneys ‘punt’ at the sentencing hearing”: The Federal Lawyer – a federal judge’s perspective.

 

The Process Starts With Comprehensive Presentence Interview Preparation

This is the next most important aspect of your defense as it determines your future. Why, (1) Judges use it to sentence you, (2) The BOP will use it to sentence you, (3) Probation will first use it to “profile” you, before they meet you, and then throughout your term of supervision, (4), and finally it remains on your file – for life.

Having maintained my medical license now for over 30+ years has made me uniquely qualified to work with you, and your attorney.

Facing Prison
  • In the federal system; more than 90% of those indicted go to prison, (In the state system; greater than 75% of those indicted wind up in prison).
  • The defense’s message regarding background, sentence mitigation, and BOP Placement should be prepared to be included in the information provided to the Provided Officer before The Presentence Interview (PSI), in order to get it on the record.
    • How?
      • Gathering all of the information before the PSI with the help of your client.
    • Why?
      • Probation officers draft the PSR after conducting the PSI. As they are overworked, and while they are doing their best, they just do not have the time to do the proper due diligence.
        1. The PSR determines your future.
      • Because changing the Presentence Report after it has been drafted is a big and questionable “if”.
      • In addition to including your medical, criminal, family, educational, social, medication, work, and marriage; it allows you to present your narrative;
        1. In your own words, explain from the heart what happened, and what you will do in the future to not re-offend.
          • Accepting responsibility may result in a 2-3 point reduction.
        2. It allows your attorney to get the defense’s message/strategy on the record.

Everything below is just part of what has to be documented and provided to the Probation Officer.

That includes providing your legal team with complete copies of:
Complete Medical History:
* All Surgery Reports, * All Physician Contact Information * All Blood Tests for the past 2 years * All Medical Records, * All: X-Ray, * CT, MRI Reports (CD, where available for both, 2 copies each, one for your families records and the other for the court and Presentence Report)

All Original Prescriptions for:
* Medical Devices * CPAP, BiPAP, * Eyeglasses, * Orthotics, * Prosthetics, * Diabetic Shoes, * Wheelchairs, * Cane, Crutches, etc., * Medications

Diplomas: * Highest Education Level Completed, * Any Certifications

Military Service: * Branch, * Rank, * Discharge Type

Recommendations and References: In Written, and in unique circumstances Video Format after consulting with your attorney.

Getting all of this completed, along with a BOP placement request that supports the reasons “Why” the request is being made, is all best provided to the Probation Officer before the PSI, so that it could be part of the record.

PPRS Prison Match™ – Sentencing and BOP Placement Preparation
    1. You’ve chosen a great attorney, now early preparation (with your attorney) for your Presentence Interview, including the Placement Request, can save you future expenses later.
    2. Do these apply:
      • Are you eligible for RDAP (up to 1 year off your sentence),
      • Are you taking medications if so are they available?
      • Do you have any mental and or medical healthcare needs?
      • Would participating in any of the BOP psychology therapy programs be of benefit, if so is your anticipated security level a match?
    3. Being proactive in this process will impact you and your family’s immediate fears and future.
