Criminal Defense


With a strong reputation for successfully handling and resolving criminal defense cases, we know the ins and outs of fighting for your rights. We excel in handling a variety of criminal defense cases, including: 

One Charge Could Change Your Life

Both misdemeanor and felony charges have the possibility of changing your life forever. That’s why it’s crucial that you hire a criminal defense attorney that’s going to fight for you. For example, if you are convicted of a DUI, this may disqualify you from being able to secure a job in a certain areas of employment. Felony convictions can even keep you from being able to go on field trips with your children or working in the school system. Some felony convictions also disqualify offenders from being able to work in the medical field. 

Navigating Your Criminal Defense Case

In addition, there are many processes involved in felony and misdemeanor criminal defense cases, including numerous court dates and lots of communication between prosecutors, lawyers, and judges. It’s important to choose a criminal defense attorney who is going to be on time and help you navigate this web of due dates and documents.

At Fitch & Stahle Law Office, our goal is to resolve your criminal defense case in the quickest, most effective manner possible. If criminal defense charges cannot be reduced or dismissed, we work respectfully alongside prosecutors and judges to achieve the best possible sentencing.
Felony convictions can also lead to long incarceration times. Depending on the details of the charges, some convictions can lead to life-long jail sentences. Our goal is to always minimize time spent in jail, including the time you spend while waiting to be sentenced. Whether it be getting you out of jail on bond or reducing the amount of time you spend in jail for your sentencing, we understand the importance of working with the court system to help ensure you aren't behind bars. We want you to be a productive member of society, working and tending to your family responsibilities. 

When handling drug cases, we always strive to help offenders not only receive a reduced sentence but to also ensure they are integrated back into society without a substance abuse problem. To help achieve this goal, we usually ask the court system for some type of rehab sentence. Whether it be a 30-day outpatient program or a 6-month long-term residential center, we want to ensure you receive the help you need. 

If you are facing more serious criminal defense charges, such as burglary, it is of the utmost importance that you have a qualified and experienced criminal defense attorney by your side during the entirety of your case. Burglary charges often come with steep sentences, but at Fitch & Stahle Law Office, we have the ability to deeply investigate the details of your criminal defense case to ensure you receive the best sentencing possible.
