Steve and his firm were a pleasure to deal with in every possible way. We first reached out to him on a weekend, in a near-panic over the cluster of juvenile and adult charges that our son (18) was facing. On a Saturday night, Steve responded to my initial query within an hour and he helped me and my wife think through our son's cases in a calm and levelheaded manner. He was supportive and made himself available to us in a way that always made us feel that we were his primary focus, although our case was a very small one in relative terms. Steve was extremely up-front about his fees and billed his time <very> fairly. We also worked closely with one of his associates, Anthony Gallo, with whom we were also delighted.
If and when you should find yourself in the unwelcome situation where you need the help of a criminal lawyer, Steve should be your first call. You will not regret it.

I was represented by Steve Fairlie on a legal matter where a lot was at stake, including my Division 1 scholarship and future job prospects. Throughout the proceedings, Steve provided prompt and capable attention to my concerns and exceeded all expectations. While the offense was only a summary offense, I felt as if I was Steve's only client and his most important case. I would highly recommend Steve Fairlie to anyone looking for a top-class attorney that delivers results.

I contacted Attorney Steven Fisher Fairlie and was treated in a very friendly and down to earth manner. His attention to my problem was very much appreciated and stress relieving in knowing what the outcome would probably be.

I am a Pennsylvania licensed respiratory therapist and an advocate for the homeless. Atty Steven Fairlie was quick to reply to my question, but that wasn't all. He continued to keep in touch with me with updated infomation that was completely helpful for my situation. I really never had an attorney so caring and knowledgable. As a healthcare professional myself I can tell that, unlike alot of attorneys who are only concerned with the "open-and-easy" money cases, he is community and people oriented. It shows in his time invested and professionalism.

Due to extraordinary circumstances I contacted Mr. Fairlie on a moments notice needing help with an upcoming court date. Although he couldn't help me, he patiently listened to my concerns and then went further to seek out several referrals for me to choose from. It spoke volumes about how responsive and caring he was. In the future I will definitely work with this attorney and so should you!

Steven handled my personal injury case and got me far more money than I thought possible. I had another attorney first who did not do much and could only get the insurance company to offer 1/5 of what Steven got me.

I was represented by Mr. Fairlie and can say that he was 100% in tune with all of the events that were going on in the courtroom and the court in general. This attention to detail was the most valuable characteristic that he possessed because it led to his ability to make decisions that proved to be in my favor with regards to my sentencing. He always knew what was going on, and amazingly was able to predict the moves that others were going to make before they even made them. He is the attorney that seems to know when and how to take the bull by the horns. He was always available to talk, and always had answers that were accurate and detailed. Damage control, negotiations, working out fair sentences and sorting out complex cases looked like a walk in the park for him. He was always calm, cool, collected and that demeanor rubbed off on me as a person in a very difficult situation. I walked into his office after having my personal life become an open book for the world to judge. From the first day I walked into court with him I felt that I was safe and protected from the outside and in capable hands. On more than one occasion I said to him, "Mr. Fairlie, you know what you are doing, and I trust you to do whatever you feel is best." And I left the hard choices to him and in the end his efforts on my behalf proved to be more valuable than any number of my words could possibly begin to express. As I have told him myself, he turned a situation that could have ruined my life into a bearable one that I can put behind me. The other side of the court had heavy hitters that were after a defendant such as myself with a vengeance, I felt comfortable knowing that the person standing next to me was an attorney that knew how to play their game, and more importantly, how to win it. In the end- for my very difficult, lengthy and complicated case, he told me what he could do and he then went above and beyond and even over delivered. Most definitely a man who could back his title of Criminal Defense Attorney up with the kind of force that one expects from one.
He was in the end able to get a sentence that could have been an incredibly long prison sentence with multiple felony charges reduced down to an easy and short jail sentence with only one charge and no restitution- those are skills in my opinion that are not easy to find.

In January 2009, my husband and I hired Steve Fairlie to defend our son for a criminal offense. This was not the first time we hired Steve but this particular case was extremely serious. Steve is a very approachable, responsive and credible man. We did not question his integrity for one minute. He is extremely trustworthy plus he was very willing to listen to our suggestions and he was understanding and sensitive of the trauma that we were going through personally. Steve was able to present a case that we were very proud of, we did not have to resort to any unethical methods or stretch the truth in any way. In other words, we did not have to hurt anyone else in order to present our son's case. We were very happy with the outcome and we were very happy with the approach Steve took. Our son was guilty but Steve was able to present the mitigating circumstances in such a way that not only brought justice to the verdict but also mercy. Having Steve as our attorney made the whole ordeal just a little easier to deal with. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone needing legal help.

When dealing with a very stressful situation, we felt extremely lucky to have Steve Fairlie on our side in the courtroom. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Fairlie demonstrated a professional approach, yet with a personal touch. From beginning to end, it was clear that our case really mattered to him and that he truly wanted to help us. He also helped us to feel comfortable with the process and was available to answer all of our questions and concerns. In the courtroom, he thought of every angle and asked all the right questions - we had a very successful ruling and would hire him again in a heartbeat!
