The Right Experience: Former Prosecutor & 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 Jacksonville defense attorney, he has developed successful strategies to expose weaknesses in the prosecution's case at trial and argues for acquittals or for lesser charges that are more applicable.

For one client, Mitch 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.

In a federal murder conspiracy police corruption case, Mitch Stone's client was among the only defendants not convicted of any major felony charge related to the murder. His client ended up with a sentence of probation while his co-defendants were sentenced to life in prison.
