Experienced Warren Attorney Aggressively Defends Ohio Residents
Former prosecutor assists clients in Trumbull and Ashtabula counties
If you’ve been accused of a crime, you have fundamental rights and should never be bullied by police or prosecutors. However, these situations can be very intimidating, especially when your future is at stake. A tough advocate with deep knowledge of Ohio criminal law will give you the support you need to wage a strong defense. Located in Warren and Jefferson, my firm, Garrett Stern LLC, represents Northeast Ohio clients who have been charged with felonies and misdemeanors. When you work with me, Candace Garrett, you receive a defense informed by more than 15 years of experience handling criminal cases, including significant work as a prosecutor. Using this background, I am able to deliver tough, honest advocacy at every stage of the criminal justice process.
Jefferson firm delivers strong counsel in all types of criminal cases
Regardless of the particular charge, I’m not afraid to challenge law enforcement or scrutinize the evidence and procedures involved in an arrest. You can count on strong representation in matters relating to:
- Felonies — For charges such as homicide, sexual assault or other serious crimes, I push back on assumptions and biases that often taint these cases. If you’ve been accused of a crime based on a physical altercation or purported instance of domestic violence, I take the extra step to determine what really happened.
- Misdemeanors — If you’ve been charged with simple assault, petty theft or another misdemeanor, I will advocate for a result that doesn’t punish you unfairly.
- Vehicular offenses — Operating a vehicle while intoxicated, driving recklessly or another type of vehicle charge can lead to jail time, fines, license suspension and increased insurance costs. Before deciding how to proceed, let my firm help you find ways to lessen the impact on you and your family.
- Sealing records — People deserve a chance to turn their lives around if they’ve made one mistake. I advise clients who seek to seal their criminal record after a misdemeanor drug crime or some other type of eligible offense.
In a free initial consultation, I’ll give you honest, informed advice about your options. My background helps me to assess a prosecutor’s case quickly and identify any flaws. From there, we can seek dismissal or acquittal or pursue a plea agreement that results in reduced charges.
Skillful advocate provides comprehensive legal support to the accused
Taking on prosecutors and police isn’t easy, but you can rely on my knowledge of the criminal justice system and my determination to secure fair treatment for my clients. Having tried numerous criminal cases to a jury verdict, I am a thorough researcher, a skilled questioner of witnesses, and an insightful analyst of evidence. Even if you or others believe that no viable defense exists, my firm might be able to find something that others miss. From the moment you are arrested, the authorities draw on vast resources to build a case against you. No matter what charge you face, you’re entitled to a tireless advocate, committed to safeguarding your rights. I offer that advocacy to the people of Ohio I represent.
