I was deployed half way around the world facing a career-ending adverse action. Mr. Shewmaker was with me through every aspect of the process from notification of investigation through response to findings and recommendations. He skillfully identified errors on the part of Command and presented the facts in a way that led to a positive resolution of my case. I would recommend Mr. Shewmaker to any servicember.

I was facing getting possibly getting chaptered out of the Army for an EO complaint. My Army appointed lawyer gave me a list of names of lawyers she has worked with before to possibly choose from as civilian council. I wasn't forced to use these names she had provided for me, but I thought I would look them up anyways. I came across Steve Shewmakers name and looked up reviews for him. I did not find any bad reviews that were Military related, and I thought he would be a good pick for me. He worked very well with my Army appointed lawyer, was willing and able to answer all of my questions, I was able to stay in touch with him on a fairly consistent basis, and most of all he helped me win my case with the Army separation board and I was able to be retained in the Army. Because of Shewmaker, I have the second chance that everyone deserves. I feel confident in saying that Mr. Shewmaker will do everything he can to get you the outcome you desire. And hopefully I don't need representation again, but should I find that I do, Steve Shewmaker will be my first call.

Steven Shewmaker is a great lawyer! I had a traffic ticket I felt I didn't deserve and he helped me get the case dismissed. I would recommend him to anyone, he is a great guy and will definitely fight for you!

I am a former client of Steven Shewmaker. Fortunately or unfortunately I may be his client again, but at least I know if I do need an attorney, Steve will be my only choice.
I fought my child custody/visitation case in both California and Georgia. Steve worked for me in the state of Georgia and although most of my case was worked in California, where I live, it was such a relief to know that although I was not there in Georgia, I had an attorney that has an impeccable work ethic and trust worthy character. I did not have to stand behind him to know my case was important to him as well as me, and I could continue my life and day to day stress without worrying about what was happening in Georgia without me there.
Steve is very thorough and creative, he thinks outside the box when there is nothing else left in the box to work with. I never saw Steve procrastinate or appear disinterested, exactly the opposite, I would get off of the phone with Steve feeling confident and assured.
I highly recommend Steven Shewmaker as a Family Law attorney.

I cannot begin to express how wonderful it was to have Mr. Shewmaker as my divorce attorney. From the beginning, he was always honest, trustworthy, and informative. As a military spouse, I could not have had a more knowledgeable attorney on my side and fighting for my rights. He never made promises he could not keep and throughout the entire divorce process Steve always left me feeling less stressed and confident in all of the decisions I had to make.
I was always impressed with how quick I would receive responses for any questions i had, no matter the time of day or night. I always felt as though I was a priority as a client and he was always 100% on top of every situation or issue as they arose.
Not only is Steve an exceptional attorney, but he is a wonderful human being. I am blessed to have met him and had him on my side throughout my divorce process. You will not find a more attentive, competent, knowledgeable, caring, and intelligent attorney working for you.
I cannot thank him enough for everything he did for me and my daughter and I am more than pleased with my experience and outcome.

I am an active duty Marine with 16 years of honorable service and counting. I'm also a single father of two teenage boys, one of whom lives with me. I also suffer from PTSD. About seven months prior to the date of this review I found myself in a situation that triggered a fight or flight response, a symptom of my PTSD, and tried to remove myself from the situation. In the process of doing so I encountered a policeman who attempted to stop me for my own safety and in my paniced state I resisted, which resulted in my arrest and a felony charge. I figured my career was over, I would be discharged, a convicted felon, and basically my whole life would be ruined. Mr. Shewmaker and Ms. Stancliffe came to visit me in the hospital where I was recieving inpatient treatment for my PTSD, listened to my circumstances, took my case, and saved my career. No felony charge and I get to continue to serve our Great Nation as a United States Marine. Most importantly, I can continue to provide for my children. Mr. Shewmaker and Ms. Stancliffe were professional, compassionate, and worked diligently to save not only my criminal record, but also my career. I cannot adequately express my appreciation and I highly reccomend their services.

Mr. Shewmaker just handled my modification of child support/alimony case. He was remarkable. He was SO prepared. I don't have enough words. He knew the case backward and forward. His understanding of the law, coupled with is preparation makes him an excellent lawyer. I am so thankful he was recommended to me. His work exceeded my expectations.

Steven served as an expert witness in the field of military pay and benefits in a suit brought against me by my ex-wife. The laws regarding the issue in question are complex and confusing, yet Steven was able to explain them dispassionately, accurately, and eloquently, thereby ensuring that the presiding judge understood the issue and ruled appropriately. I was immensely pleased with the outcome, and I am convinced that absent Steven's testimony the outcome would not have been as favorable. However, there is one thing that, to my mind, marks Steven as someone to turn to in difficult circumstances. Specifically, Steven was to be on call for my case and, in fact, had just returned from his military reserve duty in another state late the night before. Yet instead of waiting to be called, Steven took it upon himself to show up at my hearing the morning it began because he knew how confusing the laws were and how important his testimony would be. I did not know he was going to do this. I did not ask him to do this. In fact, Steven and I had never met face-to-face before he showed up that morning. Frankly, I did not even know he was in the room until the presiding judge asked him to come forward. Based on what I saw during his performance in the courtroom, and his going the extra mile as he did on my behalf I would, without reservation, recommend Steven to anyone seeking a lawyer. In fact, were I to have legal questions again in the future, he would be my first, and only, choice. He is, to my mind, not only an excellent lawyer, but a man upon whom you can depend.

Mr. Shewmaker helped me beyond recognition. He is a complete blessing in and of himself. I am so glad that I have had the pleasure to have him by my side while my world was being completely flipped upside down. I thought that there was no way I was getting out of the predicament I found myself in, but Steve found a way.
I had been wrongfully accused of Criminal Damage and a Battery Charge. Steve looked at my case and instantly knew that I was the victim in the entire situation. He started on my case immediately. He also made sure that contact was kept with me through the complete duration of my case. I was never at a loss with what he and April Stancliff were doing to save my freedom.
He spoke with me like a father, mentor, guide, companion, and a well rounded man of the law. A man of his word are among the many kind things that I can say about him. I called him begging for help and he was instantly there. Steve worked with me financially and personally to make sure that I had everything in order to be able to accomplish what needed to be completed.
I have nothing but good to speak over him and his entire staff. Even his secretary Miss Gale was a pleasure to speak with. I hope that you chose to have this man working along side of you because I would not trust anyone else to take his spot.
