Since entering private practice in 2003 as a criminal and DUI defense attorney, Mr. Stopyro has successfully defended hundreds of misdemeanor and felony cases. His expertise at crafting and presenting persuasive legal arguments has resulted in many cases being dismissed outright. Moreover, his legal skill, track record and professionalism have earned him the respect and admiration of the judges and prosecutors in the Orange County courts.
Of course, not all cases are the same. But when both the law and the facts are heavily against our clients, Mr. Stopyro is extremely adept at negotiating creative settlements to keep our clients from actually serving time in the Orange County jail. In these instances, it is essential to have a reputable and effective criminal defense lawyer; someone the judge and DAs trust to explain who you really are and tell your story in the most favorable light. When someone is facing charges their attorney is often the only window the judge and DA have into the personal life of an accused.
