Criminal defense lawyer

As a criminal defense lawyer in a small jurisdiction in Indian Country, I rely on outside sources for advice on the surprisingly complex and difficult legal issues that arise in my day-to-day practice. I was introduced to Ms. Stein through the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. When I requested assistance from attorneys who are members of the association, Ms. Stein was the first to respond. Five years later, Ms. Stein continues to patiently provide me with insightful and creative legal analysis. When it comes to search and seizure issues, Ms. Stein’s legal knowledge is unsurpassed. My clients have been fortunate to reap the benefit of her considerable legal abilities. Ms. Stein’s legal skills are matched only by her dedication to her clients and unwavering commitment to providing zealous legal representation. The citizens of the District of Columbia are lucky indeed to have such an advocate at hand.

I am a national reporter who has covered criminal justice for 28 years. When confronted with complex laws or legal theories I don’t understand, Cheryl is someone I turn to who will explain them. More important, she does it quickly and comprehensively enough that I can write about those concepts in a way that any newspaper reader can understand.

Helps a legal novice.

Cheryl Stein has been my legal professor of sorts for close to a decade. As a journalist I am always in search of someone who knows the law, case law and the real world implications of a ruling. Cheryl is that and more. One of her most important attributes is an ability to take complicated legal doctrine and explain it in such a way that I get it, no small feat. She also is fantastic at looking at both sides of an issue and offering me points and counterpoints so I have a well-rounded view of whatever subject we are talking about.
On the rare occasion when she doesn’t know something immediately Cheryl can research legal cases quickly. She is a must in my Rolodex. I can only imagine the level of professionalism and effort she puts forth for her clients.
