Do I need an Attorney

Do I need a criminal defense attorney?

If you have been arrested for a crime, it is important that you speak to a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. In some cases, being arrested can affect your ability to possess a firearm, travel to certain places, and interact with family members. To make matters worse, if you are convicted of a crime, your ability to obtain employment could be affected, you may not be able to obtain certain professional licenses, and you could be prevented from purchasing firearms. These are very significant consequences.

Client's Rating: 5 of 5

"After receiving a citation and speaking to many different attorneys, I was completely discouraged and hopeless about my situation. After scouring the internet for help, I found Adam Stout’s website. I called him and he answered the phone personally. He offered to come to my home the same day to explain all my options. After speaking with him, I did not feel that I had to go through this alone. He was totally professional and answered all my questions with patience and in a language that someone not being an attorney could understand. He even texted me back with answers to questions — even on the weekend. Thank you Adam for all your help. I definitely would recommend him for all your legal needs."
