The information provided on this site is not intended to be legal advice. Due to the nature of the legal system and the ever-changing laws, you should consult with a licensed attorney directly regarding any situation in which you seek legal advice. We welcome your calls, or electronic mail correspondence at any time. We will then set up an appointment for a free consultation. Simply contacting the law office of Stephen D. Handy, PLLC does not create an attorney-client relationship. Furthermore, please do not discuss specific facts about your case of send us any confidential information until such time as an attorney-client relationship has been established.
Call me today to schedule a meeting to discuss your case.
I will provide one-on-one contact and will handle your case personally. You will not be shuffled to another less experienced attorney or paralegal. When you are being accused, charged, or under investigation for a criminal offense, you will want to speak to your lawyer, not an associate or assistant. If I am not available, my office will get you in touch with me as soon as possible. Immediate action can often play a significant difference in the outcome of your case. Opportunities to win your case can be lost by waiting.
As a Christian and a criminal defense attorney, it is not uncommon for people to ask, “how are those compatible? Don’t you just get people off?” I don’t condone sin or bad behavior, but I’m also not free from it.
There are several reasons I have such an incredible passion for my work. First, we live in a country that requires the government to prove you are guilty beyond all reasonable doubt before you are convicted of a crime.
Until you are put in a position to defend your name and your future those words won’t have much meaning. But to me, and the people who trust me to protect them, it means that a good defense with the protections and rights of the Constitution is the only thing standing between government and the result the government wants. We don’t live in a country where someone says you committed a crime, and now you have to prove your innocence.
Life is hard enough without having a criminal record follow you around. I cannot promise a dismissal, but I can promise I will work as hard as possible to put you in a position to protect your future. Seeing a young person get a second chance after a mistake and capitalize on that second chance is well worth fighting for.
