I found Eversole Law Firm via the internet and regret checking a review rating before hiring in for help. It was very hard to talk with him after the first initial visit and pay. I was told by Steven Eversole himself that my case was a very familiar one and knew exactly how it could pan out unless he moved swiftly. Unfortunately, for me that didn't happen. I was also under the impression he'd represent me when it was time to appear in court but instead he sent someone else from his law office I never met until my name was called in court. I was never informed before my date in court that someone other that he would appear to represent me. They never put up a fight. And from the way Mr. Eversole has responded to all that clients that gave a poor rating shows how unprofessional and lack there of confidentiality.
it is come to my knowledge that Mr Eversole was not made completely aware of my circumstances I have spoken to him to his recently as the 1st of this year through email through his generosity and is outstanding the mutation in the community and being a good Christian man he is willing to had a phone conversation with me go over all of the details and fine print and you what he can to help me all it takes is one bad apple in the bunch and I should not have allowed one bad experience with one of his attorneys to pass judgment upon his ability as an attorney himself and for that I apologize. he was nice enough to write me an email Ellicottville manner and bring this to my attention I have tried on several occasions to contact him through phone but have had difficulty obtaining any phone conversations do the is overwhelming schedule I look forward to speaking with him this coming week before the 17th I have some cases and some issues that he is agree to look upon and do what he can do being an upstanding Christian man and an outstanding attorney who direct contact with him and his willingness to go out of his way to assist me further just shows the character of this gentlemanI apologize for the negative review before giving him a chance to be made fully aware of my circumstances of my last case that was represented by a lawyer that I had never metso yes Steve I would definitely recommend as a lawyer or as a friend or someone to turn to talk to for advice or guidance thank you again and I look forward to speaking with you this coming week you're a good man and an excellent attorney and thank you for going out of your way to revisit our situation.
I feel very fortunate that I hired Mr. Eversole and his team. They worked hard and aggressively on my case and I was very happy with the communication(I've had horrible lawyers in the past), professionalism, knowledge, experience during representation. This is not a fly by not solo firm here. They assign each client the supervising lawyer, an associate lawyer and a paralegal to each case. They effectively utilized experts in defending my case as well, and I am more than happy to post a very positive review. I literally trusted my life to Mr. Eversole and he delivered, big time. My son was convicted with a different trial lawyer that I paid 75,000 dollars. That previous lawyer got my son 176 life sentences. Mr. Eversole had those sentences set aside and freed my son. Mr. Eversole is highly respected in the legal community as well having won numerous awards, including a recent Top 10 Criminal Lawyers under 40 award and a National Top 100 Trial Lawyer Award. He was also named Top Criminal and Divorce Lawyer in Birmingham in Birmingham Magazine and was featured in Newsweek Magazines Top 14 Criminal Lawyers among others. I normally don't write reviews or do things like this, but Mr. Eversole made an impression on me and my family and If you need help call them now. I can't recommend them enough. Mr. Eversole offers free consultations as well so give them a try, I guarantee you'll be impressed. They handle divorce and criminal cases primarily, but an excellent firm either way.
I hired Eversole Law to defend me in a criminal case. They never created a proper defense for me and tricked me into pleading guilty in order to get a trial by jury. They then abandoned my case on the trial level because I refused to pay additional fees for a trial which were not agreed upon. I made initial contact with Steven Eversole. I thought he would be representing me, but he sent other attorneys. At my first court appearance, Richard Perry of the Eversole Law Firm told me that making a guilty plea was the only way to appeal in order to receive a jury trial because he could not win this case on the Municipal level, so I did just that. During a later court date, Eversole Law Firm sent another attorney, James Fancher. The guilty plea was questioned to Mr. Fancher and I instructed him to correct this error. He told me that a plea of “guilty” was “no big deal” and told me that it was not important. This proved to be incorrect and poor legal representation I have suffered due to their unprofessional and unethical behavior. I thought that these so-called professionals would guide this process with good intentions, but that was clearly a very wrong assumption. They preyed on my ignorance.
I found Mr. Eversole and his staff to be wonderful to work with. They kept me up to date beyond my previous experience with other lawyers, and worked hard to keep us informed of every aspect of our case. They ultimately helped me through a tough situation and didn't look at me as a client, or the person that pays them. I felt they truly looked at me as a person, and that made me want to write this review. Mr. Eversole has been around and knows his stuff and they worked hard on my case. I received precise monthly billing and they always did what they promised me. They fought hard and like it was personal. I trust Steve Eversole and his firm to take care of my more important business.
I was in desperate need of a criminal lawyer for a relative to file an appeal within 30 days. Mr. Eversole told me he was very familiar with appeals and yes, yes, yes, I should retain him. After he got my credit card info, he did NOTHINg until time was about to run out in 4 days. I'd called him once or twice a week with no response. Then on the last week with only 4 days to go, he was supposed to go to the jail and interview the relative and write a 'non-canned' plea for appeal. Since they were going to move my relative to another jail in another county, I told him to forget it. He'd not done anything in a month so I'd get someone else and please return my money. He was insulting to me, got really loud, totally out of control for a "professional" and hung up on me. Then he sent someone in his office to get the relative's signature so that he could remain on the case. He filed an incorrect paper which did absolutely nothing. I was told this by another attorney who saw the paper and he told me that Eversole "didn't know what he was doing". I filed a complaint with him with the Alabama board. I had written a post similar to this one and he told me he was going to sue me if I didn't take it down. I PAID THE MONEY ON BEHALF OF THE CLIENT & THE ATTORNEY COULDN'T / WOULDN'T talk to the client so he talked to me.
Please do NOT use this man for a criminal case. (He even admitted he was irrational when dealing with me ' You want somebody combative when you go to court".) Well, no, I don't. I want a professional who knows what the correct paper is to file.
I met with Steven Eversole and appreciated the way he listened and his ability to answer my questions. I highly recommend him and am glad I chose him and his team of attorneys to help me out.
Eversole Law firm did a great job. They kept me informed and really worked hard on my case. It took some time, but because of Steven and Adam, the judge ruled in my favor. And as a result, my life is better now thanks to the Eversole Law Firm. I am truly thankful.
Mr eversole has been my attorney for over 5 years, in that time I was divorced and paying a lot of childsupport and not seeing my children and with his guidance and will to fight for what's right and fair I have my children and Mr eversole deserves all the credit. I used a lot of diffrent attorneys in my time however Steven Eversole is the absolute best attorney in the State.
Steven Eversole is a good person, attends our church, works hard for your case. His entire staff worked hard for us, kept us always in the loop, never talks down to you, makes you feel good about bad situations. I highly recommend Steven and this firm.
