As a member of the National College for DWI/DUI Defense,  Stephen is well informed on the latest technology and rules regarding DWI defense.

He handles more DWI/DUI cases than any other kind of case. Officers only need probable cause to make a DWI arrest and failing a field sobriety tests is not always the best indicator of a person’s intoxication level.

Juries, however, need to be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that a person is intoxicated. That is why you need a defense attorney who understands the nuisances and scientific aspects of DWI law.


As a theft lawyer, Stephen has seen almost every type of theft charge in his years of practicing criminal defense. From a high school student who takes something on a dare, to a mother who absentmindedly walks out of a store without paying as she deals with a fussy baby- he’s seen it all.

Whether it’s shoplifting, credit card abuse, aggravated robbery, or anything in between, Stephen has successfully represented clients with all types of theft crimes. Consequences of having a theft conviction on your record can be life-altering. Call Stephen today so that he can protect your future.
