FORMING ROKUSEK STEIN LAW, LLCundefined

In 2016, Phil Stein joined Jackie Rokusek in forming the criminal defense firm of Rokusek Stein Law, LLC. His practice exclusively focuses on federal, state and municipal criminal defense. His vast knowledge and experience in handling unique evidentiary and legal issues, as well as his extensive trial experience, make him well suited to aggressively defend anyone accused of a crime. Phil continues to maintain a positive professional relationship with law enforcement and prosecutors, which helps ensure that his clients receive the best representation possible.

Attorney Stein is an aggressive and experienced trial attorney who has spent his entire career handling serious and complex criminal matters as both a prosecutor and defense attorney. Upon graduating from law school in 2005, Phil began working as an Assistant District Attorney at the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office. He spent two years prosecuting domestic violence and juvenile offender cases before being promoted to the Sex Crimes Division. As an attorney in the sex crimes unit for over 5 years, Phil was responsible for charging and prosecuting serious and complex sex crimes and other major felony cases, including homicides. He worked closely with law enforcement and other professionals to prepare these major felony matters for trial to judge and jury.

This opportunity provided him with extensive experience in analyzing forensic evidence, such as:

  • Biological forensics
  • DNA
  • Crime scene processing
  • Toxicology
  • Ballistics
  • Computer / phone forensics

In 2011, Phil left the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office and he joined a well-respected and reputable criminal defense firm where he worked as an associate and, eventually, as a partner. Phil was responsible for handling a wide range of city, state and federal criminal matters, and was solely responsible for handling the serious felony and sex crimes case for his firm. He has handled criminal matters for clients across Kansas and Missouri and has tried cases ranging from DUIs to homicides
