When I was a prosecutor, I had many cases with Attorney Stegall, including a jury trial. His experiences as a prosecutor prepared him perfectly to guide people through the criminal justice system; he knows what should happen and how to make it happen. He is easily one of the best attorneys I have known, and I endorse him without reservation.
