About Stephen

Learn Stephen’s areas of practice.

My practice is primarily criminal law and I have extensive experience with jury trials.  My background is in Criminology with a concentration in Behavioral Science so I am familiar with the vast majority of investigative techniques used in criminal investigations today including crime scene analysis, interrogations, surveillance, and search and seizure.  I also have extensive experience with white collar crime and cybercrime.  

Because of my trial experience and background in Behavioral Science, I offer jury consulting services but only on a limited basis.  Feel free to contact me if you need assistance with selecting a jury but be aware that lead times vary depending on the type of case.

Easy choice for representation
Stephen was prompt, intelligent, and professionally when handling my case from out of state. Everything went as planned and my situation has been resolved with his help. So glad I called him immediately following the issue that arose when driving through Tennessee. I highly recommend his services.
