My husband was unrighteously charged with murder 2 years ago after having to defend himself on our own property. I found Steve's law firm online and hired him and Peyton Peebles to represent my husband. They did way more than just represent us, they treated us like family, Steve and Peyton gave us the support and guidance we needed to get through this legal process that we had never gone through before. They worked late hours and weekends on the case and would meet with us whenever we needed them to. Steve and Peyton's knowledge of the law is unbelievable and it's very apparent that they know exactly what they're doing and talking about. Steve is very diligent in his work, and makes sure to cover every basis and won't stop until he does. He has a fire in him and a passion that is just contagious. Steve was just what my husband needed when it was time to prepare for trial. And because of their outstanding work and expertise my husband was found not guilty by jury. Steve and Peyton's ability to select and connect with the jury along with their ability to present the facts were so passionate and exact, it only took the jury a hour to come back with the not guilty verdict. Steve is absolutely AMAZING in the court room. If you need a trial lawyer and are unsure who to hire, look no further.... Steve Shellist is the man! Thanks again Texas Legal Team!!!! :)

Steve did an outstanding job handling my case. Once we finally went to trial, he completely took over the court room. He Is very passionate in his field, and I truly believe he is one of the best lawyers in Houston.

My dad was arrested for a DWI where his BAC came back a .21, although his video clearly did not match that number. Steve is much more than a lawyer, he knew more about blood than the expert they called to the stand, he dominated the court room. We got a not guilty. I'm sold there is not a better lawyer in Houston. not only is he a great lawyer but a fun guy to be around. Highly recommended.

It was a very hard case espaciallly because my father is not American. He is European. But i found Mr. Shellist. He is more than a lawyer. He helps where he can. He always talked to me and helped me to concentrade on the case. He always told me to think positive. He is more than a lawyer. He is an inspiration! He is that one person in life that you met just one time... That one person who will change your life.. That one person who you trust 10000 percent... That one person i will never forget.

Such a great weight was lifted when my first degree felony charge (theft > $200,000) was dismissed. If you've suffered the indignity of the arrest, jailing, bonding and arraignment process, I know exactly how you feel because I've been there. Fortunately, you don't have to go alone. I hired Steven Shellist as my defense attorney and I have no regrets.
The criminal justice system is slow and unfamiliar. But Steve helped along the way. He knew the right strategy to use at the right time. As a former prosecutor himself he is well known as respected in the community and was able to expertly move the case along toward our mutual goal - complete dismissal. At no time did I ever feel that Steve was just working another case. I completely felt like he was fully on my side and fighting hard for the best outcome.
If you're in a tough spot, I highly recommend hiring Steve. When it really counts, you're going to be glad the big guns are on your side.

High recommendations for this outstanding professional.

Steve S. was the best decision I ever made, my previous lawyer did not make me feel comfortable and just saw me as another case. Steve was real with me from the beginning and never left my side. When ALL i mean ALL odds were stacked against me he came through for me and fought for me like I was his last client. He is very welcoming and I feel like he is apart of my family now. He always kept me informed, and he had my back until the end. Thank you Steve for everything, you've changed my life forever!!

Our family member was charged with possession in result of overzealous police arrest without of a probable cause. There was also a misdemeanor charge to boot. We had no choice but to fight to avoid career damage. Cases like this are tough and require exceptionally skillful lawyering. After interviewing several highly rated attorneys, we went with the team of Steve Shellist and Sherin Daniel at the law firm of Capitaine, Shellist, Peebles and McAlister. Mr. Shellist and Ms. Daniel accomplished the best outcome – both cases got dismissed. It almost does not happen in Brazoria County. Yes, they were willing to travel there. What we valued in Steve the most was that he was looking forward to try the case and that he enjoyed it. When I see someone enjoying his/her work I know it will be done well. Then there is his incredible energy and fast thinking. The strategy Steve outlined was aggressive yet finely tuned. With Sherin, they filed very thoughtful motions and presented the case such that it was clear they meant business. I knew Steve is a star lawyer, but I was amazed nonetheless.

Mr. Shellist handled our entire case with great care and professionalism. He never made us feel as if he was unapproachable, which made working with him a completely different experience from every other lawyer. He knew the importance of handling our case the right way. I was not only impressed by his knowlege and experience, but also how humble and kind he is as a person. He had our felony case dismissed within the first court appearance, which was absolutely unexpected and had us crying in joy. I'd recommend Mr. Shellist to anyone in a heartbeat.
