Our Criminal Defense Experience And Reputation Works For Our Personal Injury Clients.
The firm that has become Stewart MacNichols Harmell, Inc., P.S., started out in 1992 with the intent of representing people who were injured in motor vehicle accidents. Over the last twenty years we have also developed a reputation as a top tier criminal defense law firm. This was not an accident. Back in 1992 we had a purpose; to bring together a group of professional trial attorneys who knew how to handle themselves in the courtroom.
The problem was that most personal injury cases settle, and most lawyers who spend their careers in strictly personal injury law firms rarely see the inside of a courtroom. Some have never even been involved in a jury trial. These lawyers pose little or no threat of thoroughly and aggressively litigating their personal injury cases, and the insurance companies and adjusters know this.
To maintain an edge in the courtroom we recognized that along with our personal injury practice, we also needed to become excellent criminal defense lawyers, because criminal defense lawyers are in court every day, negotiating with prosecutors, presenting their arguments to judges, and trying cases before juries.
As a result of their work in our highly regarded criminal defense practice, each of our personal injury attorneys has extensive experience in the courtroom - we have tried over seven hundred and fifty jury trials – and we are in no way afraid or intimidated by insurance companies. While most cases are settled and never end up in front of a jury, to ensure that your case is taken seriously, you need a lawyer who poses a credible threat in the courtroom, and each of our lawyers is a proven courtroom litigator.
The large downtown law firms representing major corporations in multi-million dollar litigation recognize the value of this type of courtroom experience. They often hire attorneys away from the prosecutor's and/or public defenders office. There have even been programs where, in an attempt to get their attorneys needed courtroom experience, the big downtown firms pay their attorneys to work in criminal law, for either the prosecutor or public defender. Our attorneys are in court gaining that ongoing experience every day of the week.
One interesting aspect of our practice is that, in our fight for justice, we have represented clients who were charged with a crime, such as reckless driving or assault, achieved a dismissal or jury verdict of not guilty, and then continued to represent the same client on a personal injury case arising out of the very same circumstances, ultimately recovering damages for the injuries that our client had suffered. In these instances, while the police and other authorities investigated the cases and treated our client as the bad actor, we believed in them, we recognized that they were victims, and we fought for them, and we won.
Of course, the vast majority of our personal injury clients are not facing criminal charges. However, each deserves to be represented by a law firm with a reputation for putting its clients first, and fighting for them at each step in the process, even if it means taking on the police, prosecution and government, let alone an insurance company.

Experienced Lawyers: As with most personal injury firms, our lawyers have successfully represented persons injured as a result of the conduct of others. But our experience doesn't stop there. We have also defended the very people responsible for many of these types of accidents. These include people charged with Driving Under the Influence, Reckless Driving, Negligent Driving, Hit & Run, Vehicular Assault, Vehicular Homicide and Dog Bite Cases. One of our attorneys has even represented insurance companies.
Because of the unique legal backgrounds of our lawyers, the firm is able to approach each case with a full understanding of the factual and legal issues, from both sides. We then use our experience to aggressively and effectively represent each of our personal injury clients.
Put simply, we are aggressive litigators, and the litigation skills that have made us sought after as criminal defense lawyers have also allowed us to build a solid reputation as a personal injury firm. Free Initial Consultation:If you have been injured, you need a personal injury lawyer who answers your questions, makes you feel comfortable and fights for you.
