The Chinese translate “Crisis” as
“Dangerous Opportunity”

When you are summoned to criminal court, or your licensing board files an Accusation against your license, you are in crisis; you need a good defense and a good deal more. It is time to address your underlying issues; it is time to change your behavior.

Robert Stewart Can Help You

I have been helping people change in the legal setting for the past 18 years. This work is useful for everyone, but it is particularly focused on the healthcare professional. I am intuitive, insightful and connected to a network of effective treatment modalities all across the United States. Why not deal with your underlying issues at the same time as you are being defended?

Representation by Robert Stewart includes:

  • A vigorous defense based on proven techniques
  • Individual attention to your personal issues
  • Specific guidance in making changes

I believe that the common shame surrounding addictions of every kind is that they began as fun. That was never true. All of these behaviors are anesthesia for someone in pain.

You don’t have to live this way anymore. If you are ready to change, I can help you find recovery, while defending you against a criminal matter or action against your license, hospital privileges, DEA permit, Health and Human Services exclusion.

Who is the Addiction Attorney?

As a criminal defense attorney, active in low and high profile cases, on both coasts, and between, for over 30 years, I have observed certain truths. The first of which was that all of my clients had an unhealthy relationship with drugs, alcohol or sex. The second was that their lives did not get better with a solid, conventional defense approach, regardless of great creativity. Something more was needed.

That is where my personal experience as an addict in recovery for 18 years told me that “legal work” needed to include a change in behavior. Only then can the underlying issues be addressed. The bad behavior is only a symptom.

If you have been charged with a crime or your licensing board files an Accusation against your license, you are in crisis and these charges are just the tip of the iceberg. There are deeper issues that will not go away once your legal defense is over, even if it is successful in avoiding severe punishment.

It is this realization that enabled me to develop a methodology which combines a solid creative legal defense with recovery principles. By way of further explanation, I offer some stories of my clients...
