Steven helped me through my court case from start to finish. He was upfront with what I should expect during my case. He provided excellent advice through this very long process. Steven is an attorney you can trust, treats you fairly, and very honest. I am extremely pleased with his work. He worked efficiently to help me get my case resolved. Thanks for making my experience seamless. I highly recommend Steven for anyone who is seeking legal advice.
Mr. Schanker was invaluable in securing the best outcome for my DWI. Unlike some attorneys, he charges a flat rate regardless of the time he spends on your case. During my initial consultation, Steve laid out exactly how things would work from both the State and Department of Revenue angles. He also set appropriate expectations regarding final disposition of my case. Some attorneys will talk up their ability to get you this or that, but Steve was spot on in his interpretation of my case and how it would be resolved. He was always very responsive to my phone calls, emails and texts and was also early for court all appearances. I highly recommend Steve should you find yourself in need of a DWI / traffic attorney.
I was charged with a DUI in Riverside, MO. I contacted Mr. Schanker after finding his reviews online. I had a free consultation with Mr. Schanker in which he began the process of sending in forms for me to start a defense. I had an option to go with a friend of the family that would represent me for free, but after meeting with Mr. Schanker I knew that he would do a better job. Mr. Schanker had empathy, sympathy, and compassion for my situation. He was honest, never once did he promise anything and he explained all possible outcomes. In the end, because of Mr. Schanker, I am able to keep my license and move on with my life! To sum up, Mr. Schanker charged me one flat fee for a total defense, returned phone calls, has integrity/honesty, and got me the absolute best outcome possible. Mr. Schanker's services are worth every penny of that FLAT FEE I spent and I cannot thank him enough.
Steve is extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, and personable. He was able to assist me through a rough time and was always timely with his responses. Would highly recommend.
The four atributes above pretty well covers Mr Schanker. His fees are quite reasonable as well.
He represented us in a DWI arrest & we were VERY pleased with the result.
Would recommend without a doubt.
