  • White Collar

    Although white collar crimes are non-violent crimes, the penalties can be severe. Most white collar crimes are charged as felonies, and carry the consequences of prison sentences, large fines, and restitution on top of the permanent felony record. If you have been charged with a white-collar crime such as embezzlement, forgery, identity theft, fraud, or another white collar crime, then you need an experienced criminal attorney.

  • Drug Charges

    If you have been charged with a drug offense, whether misdemeanor or felony, you need an experienced attorney. Even a misdemeanor drug conviction can have serious consequences on your employment or your freedom. Whether the charge is possession, trafficking, manufacturing or conspiracy, you need an experienced defense attorney!

Clients in their own words
  • Chad S.

    Stacie Bilyeu has been my attorney for six years now and as can be expected, when we met I was scared and in a lot of trouble. I knew that I needed a good lawyer, and I wanted the best. So after doing some research, I hired Stacie Bilyeu and let me tell you—that was the best decision of my life. I had two felony counts of sales while on probation, a twelve year prison sentence as a backup, and a past that was nothing to be proud of. What you will find out about Stacie is that she really knows the law; in fact, I thought it was funny that every time we went to court all the lawyers that I had hired in the past kept stopping her for advice on their cases. They would say, “Hey Stacie, what do you think about this?” They weren't the only ones either; the Judges that had sentenced me previously would do the same thing. I knew for sure at that point I had found THAT lawyer, the kind you only see on TV, the one that's 100% on your side and is going to fight with everything she's got, every time. Stacie did fight for me and at the end of three short months my case was done. I had a few fines to pay and I had to start my probation over, but it was definitely a win in my book. After all, they did have it all on audio. This all happened and truly I was done with being a criminal. I had burnt my last bridge in that life, so I thought. Stacie had warned me that she might not be able to get me off again, but that she would always be there if I ever needed her. Well after 2 1/2 years of recovery, like many others, I relapsed and found myself needing her yet again. Stacie was not judgmental—she wanted the facts. Once again she was fighting for me just as fiercely as before. This time it was two months and my case was done. Thanks to Stacie Bilyeu I have 2 1/2 years clean and sober again and I am a free man. Rather than sitting in prison for the ten years like they wanted to give me, I am home, and I am able to take care of my six year old son, by the grace of God and a good lawyer. I would recommend Stacie Bilyeu to anyone who needs someone to fight for their rights and freedom! -- Chad S.

    Stacie salvaged not only my freedom, but my life. She went beyond her expertise in the Courtroom, to help in my everyday life and recommended the proper changes to get my life back on track, and I can’t say enough about how pleased my family and myself were with the work and thought that Stacie put it to my case. -- Chad L.

  • Cody

    Stacie's legal representation during my case was second to none. Her demeanor in the courtroom is both well respected by judges and feared by prosecutors. She fought through endless filings, motions and trial appearances to ultimately prove my innocence. She consistently kept me well informed of any developments in my case and treated me as a friend rather than a client. I strongly encourage anyone seeking quality criminal representation to choose Stacie due to her proven track record and tenacious attitude in the court of law. -- Cody

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to questions Stacie is frequently asked

Law FAQs

I have been arrested for a crime. What should I do?

Aside from seeking proven legal representation, Stacie recommends that you exercise your rights, specifically your right to remain silent. You do NOT have to speak with the police and you are NOT required to answer questions without your attorney present. Remaining silent will ensure that you do not say anything that can later be used against you. It is extremely important to hire an attorney immediately, as the most advantageous criminal defense strategy is one that prevents charges from ever being filed. If hired shortly after your arrest, an experienced criminal defense attorney may be able to prevent formal criminal charges from ever being filed. Call Stacie so she can help!

I am being investigated for a crime. What should I do?

The best criminal defense strategy is one that prevents charges from ever being filed. If hired during the investigative phase of your case, an experienced criminal defense attorney may be able to convince a prosecutor not to file criminal charges, or to file lesser charges than recommended by the investigating agency. Call Stacie so she can help!
