About Stephen D. Handy

Practice Stephen D. Handy represents individuals being accused, investigated, or charged with criminal cases, especially DWI and DUI. The majority of my current work is in DWI and DUI defense.

Don’t you just get people off?” I don’t condone sin or bad behavior, but I’m also not free from it. There are several reasons I have such an incredible passion for my work. First, we live in a country that requires the government to prove you are guilty beyond all reasonable doubt before you are convicted of a crime. Until you are put in a position to defend your name and your future those words won’t have much meaning. But to me, and the people who trust me to protect them, it means that a good defense with the protections and rights of the Constitution is the only thing standing between government and the result the government wants. We don’t live in a country where someone says you committed a crime, and now you have to prove your innocence.
