Why Hire Me?

Attorney Steven Scharboneau with a client

Defense Is All I've Ever Done

Many criminal defense attorneys will highlight how they used to be a prosecutor and use that experience as a reason you should hire them. I believe that is counterintuitive. Choose a defense attorney who has never been the one violating your rights.

My Dedication Runs Deep

I went into law specifically to practice criminal defense and to protect the rights of others. It's what I have wanted to do since I was a child. I put my heart into every single case I take on because I firmly believe in the importance of defending those who need it most.

I Am Honest and Dependable

I firmly believe in transparent communication and will keep you informed every step of the way. With me as your advocate, you can have peace of mind knowing that your case is in the hands of a skilled attorney who is true to their word and prioritizes your best interests.
