Criminal Defense


Just being charged with a criminal offense changes your life. Your reputation suffers and you may lose your job. Friends and family may question your guilt or innocence. If you are a divorced parent, or in the process of getting a divorce, visitation with your children may be disrupted. If you are convicted, depending on the seriousness of the charges, you will likely lose your freedom for many years and have to pay a hefty fine.

In order to decrease your chances of conviction, you need the services of an experienced, competent and qualified criminal defense attorney who will protect all of your constitutional rights and fight vigorously for your freedom. That attorney is Scott Staab.

It is important that you do not talk to anyone about your case without your attorney present. This includes law enforcement, family members and friends. Anyone you speak to, except for your spouse, may be called as a witness against you. Do not speak to your cell mate about your case or leave any of your legal papers in an area where a cell mate may be able to read them. Other inmates are notorious for becoming prosecution witnesses in an attempt to have their own charges or sentences reduced.

At Staab Law, PLCC, we always work for the best interest of the client. If that means that we need to negotiate for you to have reduced charges or penalties, we are good negotiators. If a better choice for you is to fight your case at trial, we are experienced and aggressive trial attorneys who will work tirelessly for your acquittal.
