About Me

At the law office of Martin & Stone, LLC we believe deeply in the equal protection of the laws and the equal access to the courts. From our office in Bucyrus, Ohio, we work hard to provide excellent legal services to all of our clients without regard to their economic status, race, gender, religion or sexual preference.


We focus our criminal defense practice on providing skilled representation for those facing misdemeanor or felony charges. From serious violent crimes to drunk driving charges, Crawford County criminal defense lawyer Adam C. Stone works hard to protect clients' rights and to achieve the best possible outcome given their unique circumstances.

In addition to criminal defense, our firm assists those with legal issues in other areas of practice, including juvenile delinquency and other aspects of juvenile law, marital dissolution, and estate planning and administration.

Raised in Bucyrus, lawyer Adam C. Stone returned to his roots after law school and provides skilled legal services for clients throughout Crawford County and surrounding areas of central Ohio. Mr. Stone graduated cum laude from Wittenberg University in 2005, and went on to receive his law degree in 2009 from the University of Dayton School of Law. That same year, he was admitted to the Ohio State Bar Association.

In May 2009, the Dayton Unit of the NAACP awarded Mr. Stone a Citation of Honor for civil rights work he handled during law school. Additionally, the Ohio State Bar Foundation awarded him the District 5 Community Service Award for Attorneys 40 and Under in October 2010. Stone was also named the first ever "Defender of the Month" in July 2012 by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.
