Having served a 70 month sentence I wish I had known of consultants before hand. This is the reason I am getting into prison consulting. Not only would my family and I known what to expect, but I would have had someone on my side with some basic legal knowledge to give me some ideas. Attorneys, not all, sometimes have too much on their case loads or simply don't step up for you the way they should. My attorney told me that he has to work with these prosecutors and judges for the rest of his career and was not going to piss them off. He was very close with the AUSA and he did not challenge them the way he should have on my behalf. It was a negotiation not a legal battle. Had I known what I know now, I firmly believe, my case would have been drastically different. For the money you pay an attorney you don't get all the information a good prison consultant can add that is very helpfull. The addititional cost for a consultant is worth it. I wish I had done it pre-incarceration.
