The First Step  and Second chance Acts

Unlocking Freedom: Navigating the First Step and Second Chance Acts

Embarking on a journey through the federal justice system, the First Step Act and Second Chance Act stand as beacons of hope for those seeking rehabilitation and a second chance at a brighter future.

First Step Act: Maximizing Time Credits for Reduced Incarceration

The First Step Act represents a landmark in criminal justice reform, providing opportunities for individuals to earn valuable time credits and, in turn, reduce their time in prison. Sam Mangel is dedicated to guiding you through the intricacies of the First Step Act, ensuring that you not only understand its provisions but also strategically earn the maximum amount of time credits available. With Sam’s expertise, you can navigate this pivotal step toward a swifter and more rehabilitative incarceration experience.

Second Chance Act: Transitioning to Non-Custodial Environments

As you journey through the federal system, the Second Chance Act opens doors to a non-custodial environment, offering a chance for up to 18+ months outside the confines of prison. Sam Mangel’s commitment to your successful reentry includes leveraging the opportunities presented by the Second Chance Act. By understanding the eligibility criteria and advocating for your rights, Sam aims to secure the best possible outcome, allowing you to rebuild your life in a supportive and non-custodial setting.


The First Step Act, signed into law in December 2018, was a bipartisan criminal justice reform bill aimed at addressing some of the issues within the U.S. federal prison system.

When it comes time to be released into a halfway house – also called a Residential Reentry Center (RRC) – many inmates feel both excited to begin their reentry back into society, and confused at what determines their release date, where their halfway house will be, and how long they will be there.

Sam Mangel

Federal White Collar Advisor

My name is Sam Mangel and I’m pleased to reveal the back story of how I came to work with people going through the federal justice system. After all, I’m asking you to trust me. It’s only fair that I reveal my background so you will have a better idea of who I am and how I got here. My pathway to working with my team began long ago.

On April 12, 2016, at 7:00 am, I heard a knock on the door of my home. I went and opened it to find about eight people. They wore blue windbreakers with large FBI letters stenciled on them.
