Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had Ms. Kartchner represent my son. My 14 year old son had a severe lack of judgement and was charged with multiple felonies. We were completely overwhelmed! But Ms. Karchner was extremely professional and incredibly kind and understanding. She never once judged our family and treated us with the highest level of respect. We were grateful that she took the time to explain all of the legal proceedings and jargon that we were not able to understand and she thoroughly and completely explained our rights and responsibilities so that dealing with the court system was less intimidating. She went out of her way to set up meetings, visit our son in juvenile hall multiple times and prepare a case that would give him a just sentence. She was present at every single court hearing (arriving early and sitting with our family the entire time) and, despite having some serious charges against him, she was able to get some charges dropped and others reduced. This resulted in our son having the opportunity to start over with a clean slate once probation is complete.
Ms. Kartchner is incredibly attentive and never once made us feel like we were a bother despite several phone calls initiated by us with yet another question. Even though we are certain that we were not her only client, it certainly felt like it. She is professional but has a great demeanor which instantly made us feel relaxed and ready to tackle the issue at hand. We would have never imagined that we would have needed a defense attorney but we are infinitely lucky that we had Ms. Kartchner as ours.
We could not recommend her more strongly! With an established and award-winning career, she truly is the best in San Diego. (We didn't find out how established she was in the community until AFTER she handled our case. However, we are not surprised that she has an impressive reputation).

Stacey did more for my son & our family, than we EVER expected or inclined to expect from a lawyer. Stacey went way above & beyond our expectations of her job description of lawyer, she not only got my son on home arrest,( when the DA wanted to give him 10yrs w/ no possibility of parole, among a list of other things ) my son has NO RECORD of anykind, a pillar to his community & is working on his career. No matter which way my son chose to go, pleading out or going to trial, she had my sons back, like he was her own son. She even treated my husband, myself & the rest of my family, as if we were apart of hers. She was available to me 24/7 ready to be there for an emotional, stressed out mom, to comfort, console & answer any questions needed. With No Hesitation!
She Always made me feel confident that all would workout! That she was going to take what was necessary to get my son back home with his family.,
I fully recommend Stacey to Anyone who ever needs a Criminal Lawyer! She is Definitely our families from here on out!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH STACEY ! Could NEVER repay or express the gratitude we have for what you've done for our son & our family! GODBLESS

Stacey Kartchner came highly recommended by a family member who hired her for his legal troubles. Unfortunately I recently found myself in need of her service. I am overly grateful to have been represented by Ms. Kartchner. The outcome of my case ended in a DISMISSAL at my trial!! Unbelievable! Thank you Ms. Kartchner for putting me, your client, FIRST. Your expertise, HARD WORK, and professionalism never went unnoticed.
