Al Stokke worked with Ed Welbourn on my case, and I am so thankful that he did. Al was actually the first person I met at CWS. It is a testament to both the collaborative nature of the firm and Al’s own self-confidence that he chose to bring in Ed Welbourn and eventually allow him to take the lead on my case. Al is the old gentleman of CWS, and in every interaction I had with him—from meetings to court appearances—I was struck by the weight of his experience. He knows case law going back decades, like all good lawyers, but he knows it personally. Al’s experience and expertise proved profoundly helpful to both me and my wife as we faced the charges against me and considered our options throughout the legal process. I am so thankful he was a part of my team.

I keep Al Stokke's business card in my wallet, because after practicing law for almost five decades, I get a lot of calls from the thousands of clients that I have represented over the years in various civil litigation problems. If one of them calls me with a criminal issue, I give them Al's name and number without hesitation because I know that he is the top criminal defense lawyer on Orange County. If a member of my family needed a criminal defense lawyer, Al is who I'd recommend. He is simply the best - period.
