Attorney Profile

A partner at Stone, Dinkin & Amirshahi, PLC, Todd B. Stone focuses his practice primarily on criminal defense matters. From the firm's office in Richmond, he provides astute representation to people throughout Henrico, Hanover, Brunswick, Powhatan, and Essex counties and other parts of Virginia who have been accused of having committed misdemeanor or felony offenses. Mr. Stone is admitted to practice in Virginia and before the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia, and he also handles personal injury and wrongful death litigation for clients who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties.

Mr. Stone's criminal defense practice is quite varied, and it continues to be strongly influenced by his previous experience as a prosecutor for the Commonwealth Attorney's Office in Henrico County, where he handled several notable cases including violent crimes and drug possession and distribution. The types of charges that he now defends his clients include fraud and other white collar crimes, drug trafficking, sex offenses, domestic violence, murder, and driving under the influence of alcohol. Mr. Stone has been able to obtain many dismissals and acquittals, while in other instances, he has negotiated favorable plea bargain agreements with the prosecution. His successful track record since he has been in private practice has earned him a 10.0 "Superb" peer-review rating through Avvo.

Mr. Stone has regularly appeared as a legal analyst on several media outlets, including National Public Radio, the Washington Post, CNN, and other local television and new radio broadcasts. A recipient of a Bachelor of Science in business administration with honors from East Carolina University and the holder of an MBA from the University of Richmond, his legal education came at the University of Richmond School of Law, and he was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1991.
