An established Atlanta-based law practice, Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates specializes in working with clients who have been convicted of a felony and are in need of post-conviction relief. Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates has worked with numerous clients to reduce the length of their sentences and, in some cases, has reduced their prison sentences to time served. In one case, a client had received a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence upon a conviction of statutory rape. However, the court was unaware of a new Georgia sentencing provision that allowed the court additional discretion in sentencing should certain conditions be met. The firm filed a Motion to Correct Void or Illegal Sentence to reduce the 10-year sentence, which the court granted. This resulted in the reduction of the client’s sentence to time served. Another case involved helping a client who had received a lengthy sentence to receive credit for the time already served before sentencing. This time had not been take into consideration upon sentencing. The firm remedied this situation, thus reducing the client’s prison term considerably.
