Attorney Beltran has obtained very favorable sentences for clients. Although the best results are possible when a quality attorney is retained at the onset of a matter, Attorney Beltran has also assisted in matters that were previously handled by other lawyers. Sometimes, the most critical phase of a prosecution is sentencing where there is an opportunity to mitigate a long sentence or even obtain a non-incercerative (fine or probation) sentence for the client, provided they maintain good behavior going forward. In cases that go to sentencing, Attorney Beltran generally achieves a sentence of approximately half of the “guidelines” sentence initially calculated by the prosecutor. This saves taxpayer dollars and allows clients and families to move on with their lives sooner.
