I would highly recommend Steven Schanker! He responded immediately to my initial call and was extremely professional throughout the process. He kept us informed and communicated exactly what to expect so there were no surprises. Steven quoted a flat fee that was more than reasonable compared to other local attorneys. He was honest and did not encourage unwarranted services in order to charge additional fees or expenses. He genuinely cared and successfully negotiated the best possible outcome.
Well if you made a dumb mistake like I did. This is the person your looking for. He was upfront and straightforward and didn't sugarcoat anything. Told me what he could and couldn't do, and what I was looking at in charters and finds. He always keepme in the loop and was very easy to get a hold of. I had his cell number so we could txt back and forth if need be. The best of all was his pice and a flat fee.

Steve Schanker is not only a terrific lawyer, he is also a really good guy. I recently had him represent me, and was very pleased with the job he did. I have never had legal problems before, and was very anxious and worried, but Steve took control of the situation right away, and provided me excellent representation. I received the best possible outcome due to his great representation, and he explained the entire process to me so there were no surprises. He charges a flat fee, which is also a great thing. When dealing with legal issues, there is enough to worry about without adding on the potential to be 'nickeled and dimed' to death by an unethical attorney. He cares about the welfare of his clients, and I can't recommend him highly enough.
I had a case related to an auto accident where I was not at fault and received shoulder, neck, arm and back injuries. I had various medical treatments with little improvement for almost a year before deciding to contact an attorney. My doctor suggested Mr Schanker to me. I contacted him in the spring and by fall I had a generous payout from the insurance company of the person who hit me. I was kept updated on how things were going and what could have been an unpleasant experience ended up being much more pleasant than expected. I would definitely use Mr Schanker should another legal situation arise.
Atty. Schanker approached my case with a proffesionalism, willingness, and expedient consideration that I thought only celebrities could afford! The level of service he provides is not easily found these days, and that it is affordable is even more rare.
Overall wonderful. Communicates well. I give him 2 thumbs up. He has been a big help tremendously. I will definitely refer to him to family and friends. There has never been a time when I needed to call him and ask him questions about my case. He had everything under control and his prices are very reasonable and he will also work with you.
Steve Schanker was phenomenal! I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to help me through my DWI. He was very professional, friendly, informative, helpful, and quite affordable. From the first time I spoke to him until the conclusion of my case, he was able to answer all of my questions and make this unpleasant process much easier to handle. I will say with confidence that he went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome for my case. I would highly recommend him to everyone!!
Steve Schanker is no nonsense, and I am lucky to have such a diligent Lawyer on my side. Steve is easy to work with, and gets the job done without any hassles. The last thing I need in my busy day are hassles so thank goodness. I would refer anyone to Steve. I really appreciate is partnership!
Mr Schanker is very knowledgeable, professional and polite. He explained to me what to expect and immediately started helping me. I would highly recommend him for anyone in the Kansas City area for legal advice/representation.
