Advice for white-collar defense post-Booker

Alan Ellis and James Feldman Jr. have a new article entitled "Representing White Collar Clients in a Post-Booker World," which is the lead article in the latest issue of the NACDL's renowned journal The Champion.  I have kindly received permission to post the article below.

This article is a terrific resource for all federal sentencing practitioners.  The article provides a thorough and helpful overview of the post-Booker sentencing world, as well as particularized advice for white-collar sentencing arguments.  The article concludes with this sentiment: "The guidelines for white collar crime are harsh, but solid investigation, creative thinking, and persuasive advocacy can often be combined to protect our clients from overly severe and excessive punishment."

Speaking of The Champion, its May 2005 issue features articles by two law bloggers. Ellen Podgor wrote her usual column on interesting legal scholarship, and Dan Solove wrote an interesting article about data privacy and the Fourth Amendment. The articles can be found on this page:
