Practice areas

Attorney Steven Scharboneau primarily focuses in the areas of criminal defense, legislative advocacy, and appellate advocacy. He is extremely passionate about protecting the rights of others and achieves this by advocating for his clients directly in the courtroom and indirectly at the legislative level as a lobbyist.

 

Steven graduated cum laude from the University of Arizona earning a bachelor’s degree in political science with an emphasis in law and public policy. He then earned his Juris Doctorate degree from ASU Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and is licensed to practice law in Arizona and in U.S. District Court in the District of Arizona.

 

Steven works with Arizona’s top criminal justice reform leaders in an effort to transform Arizona’s penal system. He regularly spends time at the Arizona State Capitol meeting with elected officials, community leaders and special interest groups and frequently testifies in Arizona House and Senate committees. He is regularly quoted and interviewed by the media for his expertise on criminal law and justice issues in Arizona and has spoken at a number of private and public speaking engagements. His writings on topics of the law and politics are often published as guest commentary in news media outlets.

 

During his legal career, Steven has achieved a myriad of victories for his clients including several appellate wins. He is also responsible for drafting and ushering successful legislation such as Arizona’s law prohibiting for-profit commercial mugshot companies and Title 28 (Vehicular Code) reform legislation—both of which were signed into law by Arizona’s Governor. Steven has had a hand in groundbreaking criminal justice reform legislation including expungement legislation, criminal sentencing reform and the elimination of license suspensions for unpaid fines. In 2020, he received a Presidential Commendation from the Arizona Attorneys for Criminal Justice in recognition of his dedicated work at the legislature to improve the lives of Arizonans fighting for a second chance.

 

When not working, Steven enjoys spending time with his family and rooting on his daughter during her volleyball games. Steven often volunteers in his community and sits on the board of two non-profit organizations as well as serves as the Vice Chair of the Phoenix Rio Vista Village Planning Committee by appointment from the former Mayor, Greg Stanton.

Quick Responses and Confidence In The Court Room
Steven was really helpful whenever I needed him. He replied quickly and was easy to reach. He made sure I had all the information I needed and resolved my case favorably. He definitely knows his stuff, and I'll be happy to recommend him if the opportunity arises, although I hope it remains unnecessary.

Excellent Work
Steven was a professional throughout the entire process, and was extremely well prepared for every nuance of the case. He was willing to take my input in situations that called for it, and was extremely easy to work with throughout. He had an outstanding "game plan" for the trial as a whole, and nothing seemed to trip him up. I could not have asked for a better lawyer, or a better result from the situation.

I’ve worked with many attorneys. I choose Steve Sharboneau!
I have worked with a number of attorneys over the years, and there is no one that compares to Steve Sharboneau. Steve gets it. He understands that when someone is walking through his door seeking representation they are likely in one of the most challenging situations they have ever been in. Excellent criminal defense is not just knowing the law, it’s knowing your client and understanding the impact facing the government can have on the person and family. Steve is an excellent attorney at law. He understands how the government prosecutes cases and he provides a first-class legal defense. But beyond his legal skills, Steve is an excellent human being, and that’s what makes him a great lawyer. He knows the case, the law, and the human being. Steve will fight for your liberty like he is fighting for his own. Relentlessly, zealously, and passionately. When I pick up the phone to call an attorney, it’s Steve I’m dialing.

Very knowledgeable, Aggressive, Professional
After a very unfortunate set of circumstances, I found myself looking at a very lengthy sentence in ADOC due to a prior felony case in 2004 when I was only 17 years old. I'm now 34 with a wife and 4 children, own my home and buisness and nearly lost everything. Steve fought for my rights, presented an extremely viable and and solid defensive strategy. As a result of Mr. Scharboneau's relentless hard work and dedication, he was able to negotiate a resolution which allowed me to keep my life, my freedom and my future! Amazing! Highly recommended!!!

Excellent Service
We were fighting a DUI case and I got the DUI charge dropped for a lesser charge, reckless driving in a plea deal. Extremely happy and appreciative in how my case was resolved, all thanks to Stone Rose Law and my attorney Steven Scharboneau.

DUI Case
Working with Steven Scharboneau and Stone Rose Law was a great experience! Their communication was amazing and consistent and they kept me informed all the way through! I had a very unfortunate situation occur to me in December 2021. I honestly thought my entire life and career was over. Since the day I spoke to Steven on the phone all of my problems instantly started to get better one day at a time. Most importantly, Steven kept me level headed through the entire process and he was also extremely honest with me and upfront all the way through. He’s extremely confident and good at what he does, but also has empathy and compassion throughout the process. I beat my entire case and it was worth every penny! I would recommend Steven 100 times over again!

Professional & Personable Team
I recently had the staff at Stone Rose Law and especially Steve Scharboneau help me through a long grueling case of mine. They always were communicating with me about updates. When it came to being in court, Steve showed all that he knows. He was nothing but a fighter and never stepped down in the tough case we had, which in turn helped us out in the end. If you want someone who is personable but also willing to push anything for you in your case, Steve is the one to do it. I have nothing but compliments for him and recommend him to anyone needing an attorney in the area. The crew at Stone Rose are still helping me with stuff, to this day, I need to do even after a verdict has been made. AMAZING FIRM!!

Hire this Firm if you like results
Two things to know before starting this. One; always record your interactions with police and two; never speak to them and exercise your right to remain silent even if they tell you, you’re not under arrest or anything at all. Just dont talk. With that in mind. I was recently charged with a criminal offense(one which I will keep private for reasons) and was extremely stressed and losing sleep over. While my fault and a wake up call which prompted me to change my life it was still an ordeal. Colby Kanouse, Steve Scharboneau and the team at Stone Rose Law were amazing. Due to a discrepancy in my case they were able to, through a plea deal, have the charges dropped with stipulations. If not for the team at Stone Rose I don’t know where or how stressful my life would be right now. They are an amazing, professional, courteous, understanding, empathetic, thorough and more importantly human. I made the right decision in hiring them to handle my case as they handled it to the point of “beyond satisfaction”. Big thank you’s to the people at Stone Rose Law. If Tupi are ever in need of a team of people that will care for you and handle your case competently, professionally and with backbone than they are the law firm you should hire. Thank you Steve Scharboneau and Colby Kanouse for everything you and your team did.

Outstanding group
I was referred to Rosenstein and I had an excellent experience with the whole team at Rosenstein Law Group. Once consulted and I had hired them, they made sure I was completely informed about my case at all times. All of the staff treated me as if I was the most important thing they had going on. Very professional people and fought hard for me. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Special shout out to Steve Scharboneau for being awesome!
