The Soldier’s Wife

Michael Stewart is not afraid to take on the toughest cases. Sometimes that means defending clients in court and in the media.

In 2016, Michael handled a highly publicized case involving Skylar Nemetz and the shooting of his wife, Danielle. Michael defended Skylar, who faced the charge of murder in the first degree. The jury ended up convicting Skylar of reckless conduct.

“I’ve been a defense attorney for 20-plus years. The 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,” Michael says.

In this case, Michael not only had to convince 12 jurors that Skylar was innocent but the media as well.

We Don’t Let Our Clients Down

“I was looking at ALOT of time this past year, and when it came down to hire a Lawyer Michael was that person who I know I could trust, keep me informed about everything, & would really take MY case seriously, & make sure that I had the BEST outcome POSSIBLE.”


“So thankful for Michael for working for my son at the most difficult time in his life.”


“The best defence I’ve ever had & I’ve had a lot of lawyers. He goes the extra mile for his clients”

Seth, Former Criminal Defense Client

“ Mike is a hard-working, professional with excellent insight. He believes in his client’s rights and innocence and is motivated to give them their lives back. I give Mike Stewart my highest praise.”
