A good defense strategy focuses on protecting your rights and on preparing for your future.
Your future will be affected by the outcome of your case. Your case outcome depends on how well your rights are protected. Both are important.
Our criminal defense team includes former prosecutors and seasoned defense attorneys with more than 50 years combined experience. We have successfully helped clients facing charges ranging from homicide to shoplifting, and just about everything in between.
Your Voice in the Courtroom
Being heard is the first step to being understood. Your attorney can be your voice in the courtroom.
Our attorneys collaborate both in court and in the office. Strategy and legal brainstorming sessions are held regularly, and often spontaneously as our attorneys interact throughout the day.
Support and Teamwork
Every team member brings a unique set of skills and talents to the table. Using a team strategy, we work hard to give our clients the benefit of each attorney’s best strengths.
The defense team at Stone River Law includes our top support staff, along with outside investigators and other professionals as needed.
Clients are Team Members
Each client fills a vital role as part of their own defense team. Our clients will often be the best source of facts and information for case background, potential witnesses, and motives, and in providing good starting points for further investigation and analysis.
Every client has unique needs, circumstances, and goals. By including our clients as part of the defense team, we are better able to develop a defense strategy designed specifically to achieve the goals that matter most to each client.
Consequences Beyond the Courtroom
Staying out of jail and prison is a goal that is nearly universal for our clients. But the consequences of a criminal conviction can extend far beyond the walls of any jail and can last much longer than the court case itself.
A criminal conviction can affect your employment, professional licensing, schooling, housing, gun rights, driver licensing, and more.
Understanding these potential consequences and developing a strategy to best address your goals is a critical, but often overlooked, part of the criminal defense process.
Looking to the Future
Beyond just avoiding the negative consequences of a conviction, there may be opportunities for you to build something more positive and work toward a better future.
Many of our clients find themselves facing criminal charges as a result (either direct or indirect) of their struggles with alcohol and drugs, relationship problems, or mental health needs that have not been appropriately addressed.
This may be the right time to better address these struggles or problems. This may also be a good time to reassess other goals you may have.
Our attorneys can help you find the right direction.
Protecting Your Rights
Criminal defense attorneys play a critical role in upholding the Constitution and protecting the individual rights of each client. Your rights under the Fourth Amendment, Fifth Amendment, and Due Process provisions of Constitution are just a few of the legal rights and procedural protections that apply in criminal cases.
If you are facing criminal charges, our criminal defense team is ready and eager to work hard to protect your rights.
