Since entering private practice in 2003 as a Mission Viejo DUI lawyer, Mr. Stopyro has successfully defended hundreds of misdemeanor and felony DUI cases. His expertise at crafting and presenting persuasive legal arguments has resulted in many cases being dismissed outright. Moreover, his legal skill, track record and professionalism have earned him the respect and admiration of the judges and prosecutors in the Orange County courts.
Of course, not all cases are the same. But when both the law and the facts are heavily against our clients, Mr. Stopyro is extremely adept at negotiating creative settlements to keep our clients from actually serving time in the Orange County jail. In these instances, it is essential to have an effective legal advocate; someone who can explain to the judge and DA who you really are and tell your story in the most favorable light. When someone is facing charges their criminal defense attorney is often the only window the judge and DA have into the personal life of an accused.
Unsurpassed Legal Training
After his undergraduate studies in criminology at UC Irvine, Mr. Stopyro graduated second in his class from Western State University Law School. He achieved the highest academic honors bestowed upon any student; summa cum laude. He was awarded four academic scholarships, named class salutatorian, and won an unprecedented nine American Jurisprudence awards for academic excellence. After an internship with the Public Defender’s office, he was selected for a prestigious externship with the California Court of Appeal.
