Criminal Defense

The Stuart E. Brown Law Firm works to serve the criminal law defense needs of clients. We have defended clients from throughout the State and are willing and able to travel to remote sections of the State to defend criminal defendants outside of the I-5 corridor.

We believe it is critical for a competent and ethical attorney to very zealously defend and focus on the rights and legal interests of the client charged with or facing criminal charges and/or criminal sentencing. The anxiety and stress one experiences when facing such charges or potential charges cannot be over-estimated. Each case is personal and distinct but the attorney must complete:

1.  A competent analysis of the facts of the case;

2.  A thorough understanding and review of each legal element of the case the State (or other prosecuting agency) must prove beyond a reasonable doubt to secure a conviction;

3.  The development of a legal and personal strategy to win the case or secure a reasonable and fair settlement;

4.  Develop a means to prove client credibility before the court.

At the Law Offices of Stuart E. Brown, our staff is there for the client when you need them, and not based on a ‘9 to 5’ business schedule. When you are charged with a serious criminal offense that may forever alter your life and result in loss of freedom or critical personal rights, you will need to be able to contact your attorney any time of the day or night, seven days a week. Business as usual is no longer an option. Remember to not talk to the police or prosecutors until you first talk to us. The police and prosecutors have a job and it is an important one. Investigate and prosecute. They are not your ‘friends’ when you are being investigated and while you may be told that “all you have to do is talk with them and you can then leave,” many a sorry person has forever regretted not simply telling the investigating officers, “I want to talk an attorney and will have nothing to say until I do so and do not want to talk to you further.” Keep that in mind regardless of who eventually represents you.

Criminal Law Attorney

If you have been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense charge, you will be and should be frightened. Charges such as this can more serious than you think and again may carry with them, lifetime implications. Even being convicted of certain misdemeanor offenses these days could result in your not being able to secure certain jobs or worse. If you do not have an experienced and aggressive criminal attorney, you are asking for problems. Protect yourself and your family by assertively defending yourself with the help of an attorney. Whether or not you are guilty of any offense, you will need an attorney to assure the best possible outcome.

We do Criminal Law, Mediation, and Sex Abuse Defense

Whether you face criminal charges; are accused of a probation violation; are accused of domestic violence (DV), assault or worse; contact us for a free one hour consultation. We know the law and the court process. We can and will develop a strong case and aggressively move forward. We do not believe in waiting around and ‘seeing what will happen next,’ but instead assertively work with prosecutors to either have charges dropped or reach a plea agreement that will not destroy your life and which is based on whether you actually did commit the crime. We do not believe in accepting a plea bargain or settlement when you have not committed a crime.

What if you have been Falsely Accused

Whether you were in the wrong place at the wrong time, are being falsely accused of a crime, or genuinely made some serious mistake, don't make a second one. Invest in the services of the right defense attorney and give yourself a chance at the best possible outcome.  Avoid making a mistake that could have a permanent effect on the outcome of your life. With an extensive background in both mental health and sex offense/risk evaluation and treatment and the law, Stuart Brown is uniquely skilled to guide clients through the emotional distress and uncertainty of dealing with the criminal court system. Again, we handle a wide range of cases, including the following:

  • Mediation
  • Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
  • Sex Abuse Defense
