I am pleased to introduce you to Downward Departure Specialists. Mitigation is our passion. With over 50 years of combined experience working in criminal defense, mental health, addiction, and juvenile justice, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional service and exceeding our clients expectations.

We are a highly competent and diligent advocate for your client and your firm. We work interdependently with you to prepare a sentencing memorandum designed to achieve a lesser sentence. We value your reputation in the criminal justice world as much as we value our own.

We use a team approach to collect and analyze records, perform collateral interviews, build rapport with your defendant and his/her family, collect character letters and create a mitigation memorandum that has been designed to bring your client’s story alive. We take the records collection, interviewing, expert vetting, and time-consuming interviews with your client off your plate. Our team completes full mitigation investigations quickly, enabling you to spend your time working on case strategy and direction.

To learn how we can help you obtain lesser or alternative sentences for your clients, please contact us at (916) 224-4680 or info@downwarddeparturespecialists.com.

We look forward to working with you!

Best Wishes in this New Year,
Anna M. Stowe
CEO of Downward Departure Specialists
