Criminal Defense

Facing criminal charges is never a simple process. Individuals facing these charges can often have their liberties, freedoms, and even their dignity stripped from them before their case is even resolved. The social stigmas involved with criminal charges can damage an individual's reputation, and can even affect their job status or other future employment plans. That's why it's important that you have an experienced attorney on your side to help you mitigate many of these damaging effects so that you can maximize your chances of successfully defending your case.

Why Experience Matters

Experience is always important when it comes to any area of the law, but it can prove particularly crucial in criminal defense. Many attorneys will only take on certain criminal cases, while others may try to avoid litigation altogether. At Stolte Law LLC, I'm prepared to do whatever it takes to help you build a successful defense strategy, even if that means taking your case to court. If your case does move to trial, you can't afford any inexperience with your attorney. Courtroom proceedings can be complex and require a certain level of knowledge and expertise that can help swing any case in your favor.

What criminal cases do you represent?

I specialize in a variety of different criminal defense areas and have extensive experience defending cases inside and outside the courtroom. While every criminal defense case can be unique, the majority of my defense work has been in the following areas:

  • DUI defense
  • Drug felonies and misdemeanors
  • Theft and burglary charges
  • Domestic battery and assault
  • Aggravated assault and battery
  • Probation violations
  • Other felonies and misdemeanor charges

Timing Can Be Crucial

When it comes to criminal charges, timing can be everything. If you've been charged with a crime, the most important thing you can do is contact an attorney immediately so that your rights can be protected. Often times when law enforcement officers are handling criminal matters, they can try to get a statement or even a confession from you without an attorney present. While it's always important to cooperate with law enforcement officers, you do have rights while you are in their custody. That's why it can be critical to have an attorney working for you from the moment you've been charged with a criminal offense so that they can ensure that your rights are being protected. That's why when I'm working for my clients, I encourage them to call me whenever they have any questions or are unsure of how to proceed why their case is being handled. From the moment you put me on your side, my job is to look out for you -- and that's exactly what I intend to do.
