About me

Our firm, Mastro Barnes and Stazzone, P.C. represents people accused of crimes. As a criminal lawyer, I get to go to court nearly every day and help people whose lives are sometimes in turmoil. The people we represent do not need a lecture from their attorney but sound and caring advice. We offer a helping hand.

  • Miles America Cabral

    I endorse this lawyer. I had the pleasure of working with Steve on a Felony Sex Assault case where the offer was a lifetime prison sentence. Steve, using his calmness, professionalism, killer cross-examination skills, jury voire dire skills, and skilled preparation helped win the trial and give the client his life back. Very well practiced, well mannered, and extremely professional.
