Time is a critical element in the legal process. Waiting to take action on your case can potentially create unnecessary complications and disadvantages. Let us begin to effectively defend your interests today.
First, we listen to our clients’ fears, hopes, and concerns. By asking questions and carefully listening, we obtain important information that we use in our clients’ defense.
We have come to learn that people are most fearful of the unknown. One of our responsibilities is to educate our clients about the criminal justice system and the legal process. Understanding the process, including knowing what comes next, and always being kept up-to-date with case developments, helps ease the stress for many of our clients.
We create a tailored plan for each of our clients. Depending on the case, the case development plan can include, but is not limited to, conducting legal research, utilizing private investigators, analyzing the prosecution’s evidentiary materials, consulting with attorneys in other legal specialty areas, and working with expert witnesses.
We use the information assembled in the case development stage, to advocate passionately and strategically for our clients. This advocacy can occur in pre-trial negotiations with the prosecutors, in motions submitted to the court, or in trial, depending upon each client’s needs and goals.
We always strive to do our best to eliminate or mitigate the harmful consequences that can come to our clients as a result of the criminal cases they face. Although no attorney can ever guarantee a particular outcome for a case, what we can guarantee is that you will get our attention and best efforts.

She is an exceptionally talented attorney who is very compassionate and kind. Thanks to Ms. Kara I have my daughter back with me, my life back and a great new job. My life is beautiful now because she cared about my case and my future. SHE IS THE BEST ATTORNEY IN SLO COUNTY!!!!!!
I could not have asked for either a better outcome or better legal representation. Kara, however, was supportive and empathetic during the entire process, all while remaining diligent in fighting my case. I would highly, highly recommend Kara to anyone.
The fees I paid were well worth the time spent on my case. Mrs. Stien-Conaway always provided great suggestions, she was in my corner all the way. I am so glad she was my attorney not theres !
She listens carefully to client's questions and comments and she responds very quickly and clearly. She's one in a million!!! I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Not only was his representation and advice wonderful, he demeanor in dealing with me and my son in a difficult matter was such that he put both of us at ease despite the stress we felt at the time. I would unconditionally recommend his service!
Mr. Stein had a great reputation with all professionals around him, especially the Judge. It was obvious everyone he came in contact with had a high respect for him. Mr. Stein is brilliant and compassionate at the same time.
He took the necessary time to prepare the strategy and us for court and the various hearings. In the end we prevailed. Hopefully, we will not need his services again but if we did we call Jeff Stein again.
From the very beginning and throughout the entire process, Mr. Stein was nothing but professional, compassionate, and informative. His calming demeanor and reassurance is what got me through the process.
