    If you or someone you care about is under suspicion or has been arrested or charged with state or federal criminal charges, whether the case involves a felony or a lesser offense, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified criminal defense attorney before making any statement or responding to questions from police, investigators, or prosecutors.

    At Stone & Associates, our lawyers always make it a point to know more than the opposition knows: about the law, about the facts and about the evidence.
