Legitimate Defenses & Alternative Outcomes
For 30 years, Mitchell A. Stone has been a lawyer working in the criminal justice arena. He has developed successful challenges to all types of drug charges. He analyzes whether police had the right to search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment, whether evidence was collected and processed properly, and whether evidence obtained from informants or undercover officers is legitimate. Attorney Mitchell Stone can often get charges reduced or dismissed entirely by identifying problems with the prosecution's case.
In Florida, prosecutors often seek prison sentences if the offender is charged with the sale or delivery of illegal drugs. At Mitchell A. Stone, P.A., we counter that with our experience, reputation, and tenacity in order to ensure our clients are not subjected to such harsh sentencing. Even when the policies of the prosecutor prohibit pretrial intervention, we have been able to qualify our clients for such programs in order to avoid criminal convictions. Attorney Stone understands the process and makes sure that your special circumstances are known in order to seek a favorable resolution. In those circumstances, Attorney Stone has been able to demonstrate his clients are worth a second chance and has successfully negotiated alternative resolutions that result in the complete dismissal of all criminal charges, even when the evidence to convict was strong.
