The Right Experience: Former Prosecutor And Board-Certified Trial Specialist

As an assistant state attorney early in his career, Mitch Stone was promoted to the homicide team where he learned how police investigate murders and how the prosecution prepares cases, including capital crimes. As a defense attorney, Stone has developed successful strategies to expose weaknesses in the prosecution's case at trial and argues for acquittals seeks verdicts for lesser charges that are more applicable.

For one client, Stone succeeded in reducing a terrifying charge of first-degree murder to a more appropriate charge of accessory after the fact. He did this by intervening early in the process to challenge the evidence. Instead of facing the death penalty, our client was sentenced to a mere 13 months in prison.
