At Stergiou & Stergiou P.C., We Believe in the Fundamental Concept that an Individual is Innocent Until Proven Guilty. Don’t let Them Bully You. Stergiou & Stergiou P.C. Rightfully Enjoys a Reputation for Aggressive, Proactive Criminal Defense. You can Count on Us to Examine Every Aspect of any Charges You Might Face.  

We are Dedicated to Representing Our Clients, at Every Stage of their Case, No Matter what Crime they are Accused of.

Never, Under any Circumstances, Should you Talk to a Police Officer without Consulting your Attorney.

A conviction in any of the above criminal charges may involve:

  • Short or long term prison sentences 
  • Jail sentences
  • Probation or parole
  • Conditional Discharge
  • High fines and court costs as well as probation monitoring fees.
  • Electronic home monitoring or Work release


A conviction for a misdemeanor and/or felony may have long term consequences and can affect your chances of employment or continued to be employed. A simple background check can reveal a great deal.

Stergiou & Stergiou P.C.’s Defense Team will thoroughly investigate your case by reviewing all of the State’s evidence, questioning witnesses and exposing weaknesses and contradictions in Law Enforcement's and the Prosecution’s case.

After a thorough analysis of your case and the evidence against you, we will determine if there are appropriate motions to file on your behalf such as:

  • Motion to suppress evidence against you  
  • Motion to Dismiss
  • Motion for additional Discovery


At every stage of your case we will clearly communicate to you the strengths and weaknesses in your case and the Prosecution’s as well as the possible consequences of filing or not filing motions or going forward with a trial or reaching a plea agreement.

Mr. Stergiou has also successfully represented clients in reaching a plea bargain whereby he has reached deals where an individual avoids jail or prison sentence. 

We will not let the police or the prosecution intimidate you.

We will assist in reducing your bond or be released on personal recognizance.
