Cheryl Stein is in my opinion one of the best lawyers in DC. Not only does she have a great deal of knowledge in regards to the Law, but her court room presence is amazing. Ms. Stein was extremely helpful and was always professional while handling my case. I was definitely impressed by her preparation and her command of the court room. She adapted as things changed in the case and put up a great defense. I would highly recommend Cheryl Stein to anybody in need of a lawyer. You honestly couldn't pick a better lawyer.
Cheryl Stein has been my legal professor of sorts for close to a decade. As a journalist I am always in search of someone who knows the law, case law and the real world implications of a ruling. Cheryl is that and more. One of her most important attributes is an ability to take complicated legal doctrine and explain it in such a way that I get it, no small feat. She also is fantastic at looking at both sides of an issue and offering me points and counterpoints so I have a well-rounded view of whatever subject we are talking about.
On the rare occasion when she doesn't know something immediately Cheryl can research legal cases quickly. She is a must in my Rolodex. I can only imagine the level of professionalism and effort she puts forth for her clients.
Very rude and disrespectful, undermined the attorney client relationship the entire time. Additionally made very amateur mistakes so much so I had to hire a new attorney. Thousands of dollars later I found that another lawyer for half the cost was much better.
I highly recommend attorney Cheryl Stein. Ms. Stein is an excellent criminal defense lawyer. She is smart, thorough, and is very knowledgeable about the intricacies of the District of Columbia Superior court system. I was extremely satisfied with the way in which she handled my case and represented me during court proceedings.
Attorney Stein was always available for me. She answered every question I asked, and explained complicated legal jargon in a way that I could fully understand. I certainly hope that I am never in a situation where I need criminal defense representation, but if I ever am, attorney Stein will be the first person that I call.
To Whom it may concern:
Cheryl D. Stein, Esq. of Washington, D.C.has been representing me with my criminal and civil law suits since 2009. My ongoing experience with Cheryl is one of high professionalism. With Cheryl's extensive and expert knowledge of U.S. Federal laws, she is the definitive person to hire with sensitive criminal matters. Her recall of federal case law, and particularly the US Constitution and Amendments is superb. From her vast courtroom experience, she knows how to read the prosecution and is an expert in dealing with courtroom judges. I highly recommend Cheryl for anyone who has suffered with a criminal indictment. Thank you so much Cheryl for all your hard work and diligence with respect to my cases!
