Most criminal prosecutions are resolved prior to trial. However, sometimes a trial is the only way for a defendant to receive justice. Either way, it is important to have a skilled and experienced litigator by your side as pre-trial matters such as motion hearing preliminary examinations, probable cause hearings, evidentiary hearings, and other judicial determinations can impact subsequent plea negotiations or trial. Attorney Stout excels both in and out of the courtroom.
