    Mike Stone is one of the most formidable, hardest working criminal lawyers in Texas. His experience in every type of criminal law – from Capital Murder to simple misdemeanors – makes him one of the most respected attorneys that the State has to face. Whenever I have a question of law or a scenario that I need to work out, I talk to Mike and his advice is invaluable. I highly recommend Mike to anyone who needs the sound advice and the determination of a criminal lawyer who wants to win.
