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.
