“The shortest possible sentence, served at the best facility!”

RDAP Graduate (2003)

Experience is the Greatest Teacher

Never say: “If I Only Knew Then, What I Know Now!”

I have been in your shoes and have personally experienced everything you are about to go through. Defendants and their families immediately become overwhelmed by difficult questions about incarceration and time away from one another. The unknown is the scariest part of this process.

I will help dispel many myths popularized by modern media and provide you and your loved ones with accurate information, peace of mind and a firm understanding of what to expect next. An informed and rational client can aid their own defense dramatically and avoid unnecessary exposure to lengthy sentences. The right consultant will thoroughly prepare you for each stage of the indictment process before its opportunities pass you by.

Ask yourself – how much is a year or more of your life worth to you?

You owe it to yourself and your loved ones not to leave any stone unturned, do everything in your power to avoid or at least limit the amount of time any possible sentence may carry and prepare yourself for what may lie ahead. I work directly with each of my clients one-on-one customizing a contingency plan to suit their individual needs. No matter what stage of the criminal process you find yourself – I can help!


While my lawyers worked on the legal aspects of the case – my family and I prepared for the fight of our lives. Our consultant was by our side every step of the way, addressing our concerns, answering our questions and preparing us for what to expect next. The extent of his knowledge and ability to make a difference even exceeded my expectations and contributed to a significant sentence reduction.


This program offers eligible inmates up to a 12-month sentence reduction, in addition to 6-months in community custody. Graduates effectively mitigate their “gross” sentence by 18 months! For example, a graduate of the BOP’s Residential Drug Abuse Program (originally sentenced to 37 months) would become eligible for transfer to community custody in approximately 13.5 months!


Patrick J. Boyce Federal Mitigation Specialist provides his clients at NCIA with a unique professional sentencing and prison consulting perspective representing federal criminal defendants and inmates throughout the United States.

Reduce Any Sentence By 18 Months or More!

A Sad But Too Often True Story

David was sentenced to 37-months in federal prison after pleading guilty to tax evasion. After his plea, thinking he could handle everything on his own David made a number of critical mistakes, including going into his pre sentence investigation (PSI) unprepared and when the probation officer asked if he had any substance abuse problems; David like most defendants, especially those with actual substance abuse problems, incorrectly thought “well, I don’t want to tell them that I have drug and alcohol problems because then the judge may think poorly about my character at the time of sentencing and give me a much harsher sentence; so I’m just going to downplay my use and say I’m just a social drinker or not tell them that I use at all.”

The truth was that David used both drugs and alcohol on a daily basis for years and it wasn’t until after his arrest that he stopped using cocaine for fear of testing positive while on pretrial. David like many defendants try to go it alone and think they don’t need advice from a professional consultant to help them through this difficult time and risk years of extra time in prison. The fact of the matter is David unknowingly harmed himself; instead of getting the treatment he needs and earning a sentence reduction that could have had him back home where he belongs in 14-months, David had to serve 28-months in federal prison; doubling his time served.

Too many offenders like David have to live with regret and end up serving unnecessary time because they fail to properly prepare for sentencing, federal prison and position themselves for beneficial programs like the RDAP. Don’t become another statistic; take an active role in your defense and get advice from experienced professionals.  First and foremost, in concert with counsel we do everything in our power to prevent our clients from ever seeing the inside of a federal prison. However, in those cases where a prison term cannot be avoided, we make sure that our clients serve their sentence at the best facility given their individual needs, while at the same time providing the greatest opportunity for early release.

I count my greatest attribute as being the only federal sentencing and prison consultant who has personally experienced every aspect of the federal criminal justice system from indictment, trial and sentencing through incarceration, prison programs (RDAP), supervised release, and the rebuilding of life after a period of incarceration. I promise to not only prepare you and your loved ones for what lies ahead but also be with you every step of the way and never leave your side!

Together, We Will Get Through This

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So, he sent them on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away. The first son went in the winter, the second son in the spring, the third son in the summer, and the youngest son in the fall. When they all had gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted. The second son said, “No”, it was covered with green buds and full of promise. The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful. It was the most graceful thing he had ever seen. The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment.

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right because they had each seen but only one season in the tree’s life. He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season, and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all of the seasons are up.

If you give up when it’s winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, and the fulfillment of your fall.

Don’t let the pain of one season define all of life. Don’t judge life by one difficult season. Persevere through the difficult patches and the better times are sure to come and they may even redefine the challenges of the past!

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.
