5.0 stars 26 totalReview Stephen Shepard
I've known Steve since autumn of 2013. The first day I met him, I was overwhelmed with relief due to how much he had looked into my case. He was very kind and noticeably caring. Saying that he is organized is an understatement. You will not just be another client to him. He never overlooked a single detail throughout my entire case, from my consultation to my expungement. I don't know much about law, and even less about being a lawyer. But I DO know that my case was not simple. I always felt that Steve was doing absolutely anything and everything in his power to represent me, and counsel me as best as possible. I never had a doubt in my mind that I had chosen the best possible attorney to defend me. At the end of my last court date, Steve received a significant verbal compliment from the judge about the way he handles his profession. As we walked out the doors of the court room, we were followed by the states attorney, who claimed that in the long time she had worked with that particular judge, she had never seen him compliment an attorney. Honestly, I was not surprised at all to hear that at all. Steve is one of a kind. I can promise you that.
It's very difficult to choose a defense attorney without a recommendation from someone. I went through a long list of people and came across an article about a woman who charged a set amount for services & charges were reasonable. I contacted her & she no longer does criminal defense . She highly recommended Stephen so we contacted him to defend our son. We are very glad that we did. He was very thorough & knowledgeable. He was always available to both us & our son, who is incarcerated. I think that he worked hard to get the best result & helped with things that weren't part of our agreement. We wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.
Steve was extremely professional throughout the whole affair and put my mind at ease regarding the case. His recommendations on things to do beforehand to prep was invaluable. I know that he handles a great many cases, but never once did I feel as though he put my (relatively small) case aside to take care of a more important client or a bigger case. Whenever I called or messaged him, he would pick up the phone or respond very quickly with his advice. I have and would continue to recommend him to friends and family. You just simply cannot do better than this.
I highly recommend Mr. Shepard as a lawyer. He is very dedicated to providing the highest quality representation possible. He is extremely informative and detail-oriented about case information, maintains a constant stream of communication with his clients', and always makes himself available to answer his questions and concerns . He was most invaluable in resolving my case. I very much advise anyone searching for legal counsel to seek out Mr. Shepard's services.
I was very pleased with the services provided by Stephen Shepard. His attention to detail was outstanding. At no time did I feel my case was neglected. And his fees are more than reasonable.
Stephen became very aware of the details and circumstances of my involved case. He clearly informed me of my options throughout the case. His fees were affordable and fair. Especially considering the outcome of the case.
I would recommend anyone who needs a lawyer to use Stephen. Its hard to find anyone who does a good job today. He did, and continues to do, a great job for my cases. I will seek to use Stephen as my lawyer should there be any further need for representation.

He was was there from the beginning to end. He continually kept me informed of the case and what was going on as well as my best options. Even after my case was done he continued to answer questions and make me feel at ease. I highly recommend Mr. Sheppard for any case that you have he's extremely trustworthy and very smart with how he thinks about cases. Also compared to many lawyers he's extremely affordable for his ability to represent you. He goes above and beyond his responsibility in the job.

I met Mr. Shepard after what hung him represent a client of his in Howard county , I was so impressed with his work I hired him on the spot.After speaking with him for the first time I immediately felt at ease from the stress I had due to my case wich was actually two criminal cases all serious charges that had me facing around twenty five years in prison.After discussing my charges with him he then explained to me all the different angles of defending my case.He kept me informed throughout the time I waited for my trial and showed me exactly what his plan was and never once lied to me by promising me an outcome , he was honest and told me his opinion .During the trial it more than showed that he did his homework on my case he couldn't of done any better.Not only did I go home I was either acquitted or found not guilty on all my charges.Just to be clear I was facing twenty five years and in a county if Maryland that has one of the highest conviction rates and he was against a very very angry DA . He knew every aspect of my case along with the laws surrounding it and it showed , he was absolutely perfect . I don't want to sound like I'm over talking Mr Shepard however giving the circumstances I feel confident that if I would if had anybody other than him I would of left the courtroom in handcuffs headed to prison instead of in my car headed home to my family. I owe that man my life and would recommend him to anybody who is in need of legal counsel . I've been in trouble before and hired lawyers who charged me a lot more money and told me the whole time I was going to be fine not to worry and in the end they didn't prepare or fight for me at all compares to what Mr Shepard did , he made it a point to demonstrate his ability and I could not be happier , My family and I are truly grateful to have such a hard working fair and brilliant lawyer on our side we will never forget him .As a side note I will say he was unlike any other lawyer I've ever met his main focus was winning my case not taking all my money I even offered to pay him more and he declined , find another person yet alone lawyer who will do that ! Mr Shepard is excellent at this point in his career and I feel confident he is in his way to becoming an all time great.

Review of My Criminal Defense Lawyer
I hired Stephen Shepard to handle my DWI Criminal Defense. He was always extremely thorough in every aspect of my case. Stephen was always there before, during, and after my court case to answer any questions or concerns I had. He was very well prepared, organized, and also very professional. Overall Stephen went above and beyond any Lawyer I have had to use before. I highly recommend him to my friends and everyone else who reads my review and rating of Stephen Shepard.
