  • Ready for Trial, DUI Dismissed

    "Judge, we are ready for jury trial." That can be a frightening phrase for my clients. But, it also holds the prosecutor's feet to the fire. In this case, it forced them to dismiss the DUI charges against my client.

  • Motion To Suppress, DUI Dismissed

    “Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it.” - Prefontaine. We love this quote. Make the prosecutor work in one case, and they'll be more agreeable to a favorable disposition in another. This is why Stolte Law has an extensive pretrial motions practice.

  • Double Murder Conviction

    Finding the actions to be more than mere error and extremely prejudicial to the defendant, the Kansas Supreme Court reversed two murder convictions and remanded the case for a new trial.

  • Domestic Violence Case Dismissed

    At the end of the day, we were able to help our client’s wife avoid charges and get the case against Mr. S dismissed.

  • Battery on Police Officer

    Because the State could not prove that the instructions were harmless beyond a reasonable doubt, the charges were reversed.
