“In life, we face certain challenges. We are not defined by the mistakes we make; rather, we are defined by how we meet life’s challenges. We will meet these challenges together. For most of my clients, a criminal accusation represents one of the most difficult periods of their lives. I am proud to be an attorney for those walking through their most difficult days. I look forward to meeting you and beginning the conversation about how we will traverse these difficult times.”
– Michael Austin Stewart, Attorney at Law
What We Do And How We Do It
The Soldier's Wife
Michael Stewart takes on the toughest cases. In 2016, he was part of a highly televised case involving Skylar Nemetz and the shooting of his wife Danielle. Tasked with defending Skylar from prosecutors, Mr. Stewart defended him from murder in the first degree. The jury convicted him of reckless conduct.
“I’ve been a defense attorney for 20-plus years. Toughest case I’ve had. I’ve got a kid that I absolutely believe. I believe this is an accident, and the facts and the circumstances around it look bad.” Mr. Stewart not only had to convince 12 jurors that Skylar was innocent, but the media as well.
