Stephen H. Rountree PC: Criminal Defense Attorney

Firm Philosophy:

I took an oath to serve and to protect, and I take that oath seriously. I believe that everyone deserves to be protected, especially those people who have been accused of a crime. I want to make sure that no one is taken advantage of by the system.

What Sets Stephen H. Rountree PC Apart From The Competition:

  1. Experience – I have an extensive background on both sides of the criminal justice system, a member of an elite group of attorneys who have also worked in law enforcement. Very few attorneys understand law enforcement from such a unique hands-on perspective.

    • I have been both a prosecutor and a defense attorney;
    • I have learned procedure and policy by working as a police officer;
    • I have extensive experience investigating crimes and domestic situations;
    • I have been trained in and I am certified in DUI enforcement, which means I know how to spot problems with an officer’s investigation of your case.
  2. Professionalism – when approaching your case, I will listen to your case and your goals for the disposition of your case. We will then review possible strategies for achieving those goals and the likelihood of success.

  3. Honesty – I believe that an effective defense begins with an honest evaluation of your case. If you go into this representation believing you will get one outcome, only to receive something quite different, you will feel, at the very least,  confused, disheartened, and cheated. That is why, I will evaluate your case honestly. I will tell you, up front, what I think will be the most likely outcome.

  4. Commitment to protecting your rights – just because you have been accused of a crime does not mean that you are a criminal. EVERYONE makes mistakes, and a situation is NEVER black and white, or as simple as it first seems. This is why I believe you should have the best possible representation to protect yourself.

  5. Accessibility – my commitment to you as a client is to be as available to you as I possibly can. I almost always answer my own phone, I provide the ability to send and receive text messages, and I respond to emails.

  6. Affordability – No one plans to get into trouble. Therefore, no one budgets for criminal representation. That is why my fees are, not only, very competitive, but also I offer reasonable and affordable payment plans for my clients.
