Beat Criminal Charges
Rarely, if ever, are criminal investigations conducted in the manner portrayed on television police dramas like “CSI,” “Law and Order” or “Bones.” Most police departments face budgetary and manpower constraints that impact their ability to check alternative leads, track down witnesses and perform all necessary forensic tests.
Under time constraints, police often assess whatever preliminary evidence is available and form a “working theory” of what they believe happened. Often, evidence that contradicts this theory and isn’t supported by any hard physical evidence is overlooked, which can lead to a wrongful conviction. You need an experienced attorney who can redirect the investigating agency and keep you protected.

Protect Your Rights
If you’re convicted of a felony, then you risk limitations and losing the freedom to:
- Vote – Your voice in our democratic nation will be lost because a person convicted of a felony is subject to the loss of voting rights.
- Possess or own a firearm – Federal and state courts adhere to strict sentencing guidelines that prohibit those convicted of felony charges from exercising their constitutional right to bear arms.
- Be free from random search and seizures – Whether you are sentenced to probation or prison depends on the nature of the offense and state and federal sentencing guidelines. If you are on parole or probation, then the supervising officer assigned to you has the right to enter and search your property for unlawful items. If the officer finds any, you may be contending with revocation of probation or even additional charges.
Once charged, you have just one chance to get your defense right. You need an experienced criminal defense lawyer dedicated to aggressively protect your rights. Attorney Stone is not afraid to take your case all the way to trial. As a former assistant district attorney, Mr. Stone has the depth of knowledge and experience necessary to defend you against the most serious felony criminal charges.
