Shane Phelps provided counsel in a DWI case arising in College Station involving my college-aged child while a student at Texas A&M. I can say unequivocally that Shane is smart, capable, trustworthy and responsive. He took my initial call after hours and always replied timely thereafter. He was honest with his view of the strengths and weaknesses of my child’s case, as well as the risks and possible rewards of the various trial and pleading options. He was careful not to guarantee any possible outcome good or bad. Ultimately, he achieved a very good outcome including waiver of the DWI charge, and has allowed my child to move on to life after graduation with minimal permanent impact with regard to reputation and professional career. Shane is also just a good person. I can recommend him highly for criminal matters in Texas.
Shane really helped me get a good deal that would lead to a sealed record and then gave me a rare opportunity to get an even better deal that will lead to a completely clean record. All of this was done in a very timely manner. But perhaps the most important thing that helped me was that he told me what was going on, what to expect, and what I needed to do. This really put my mind at ease and helped me understand the legal process when I was very out of my element and had never been around court or lawyers or legal proceedings. He was very helpful and made a bad situation easier to deal with and for that I am very appreciative.
Our family highly recommends Shane for your legal matters. He is not only very knowledgable but he is very kind and compassionate. He is a straight shooter, not telling you what he thinks you want to hear, but what is realistic. Keeps you informed of the process and making sure you understand the legal aspect. He is continually attending seminars and classes to further his knowledge of the law. Prior to meeting Shane, we had never had the need for an attorney and didn't know where to turn. We were given names of several attorneys. We spoke with each one, but after speaking with Shane, we were very comfortable and felt he would work hard for us. We haven't been disappointed. The person who recommended Shane, said he was the best and we strongly agree.
I am extremely happy with Shane Phelps. Shane reduced my felony charge to a misdemeanor plea, and he reduced my deferred adjudication to only 6 months. I could not have asked for a better lawyer, he was patient and truly cared about my well being. He did a superlative job, he achieved things way above and beyond my expectations. I strongly recommend hiring him
Given my son's offense the final result was excellent and all we could have asked for. His actions and choices could have easily ruined years hard work and effort he had put into his life and Shane's knowledge and competence with these type things was clearly demonstrated. I am and always will be grateful to him for this. The only reason I didn't give "5's" all across is there were several times I was confused on timing and question why it took almost a year to dispose of ?? I had called the office a couple of times to ask questions and could not talk with Shane directly. I understand, my son is not the only case and he had to deal with, and the one in front of him that day was probably more pressing than ours ... and I was emotionally charged because to me my son's future hung in the balance and that probably clouds my interpretation of responsiveness ... At the end of the day I wanted the BEST legal help available and think we absolutely received what we paid for. I will confidently refer Shane Phelps to anyone that needs legal assistance.
Talked to Shane about 2 weeks ago regarding a situation that took place with me and an old employer. It got to point where I lost my job, had to deplete my 401k to pay back what I took and was afraid of what to expect next. Immediately after sending Shane an email about my situation, he replied and asked me to call any time of the day. Not only was he available when I called, but he was very knowledgeable! He gave me great advice, made me feel secure and offered his services if I needed him in the future. He didn't talk to me once about money and gave me a substantial amount of his time. I am so happy to have found him on avvo! Huge blessing! I would definitely recommend him!!
Shane Phelps delivered a full expunction of my criminal charges in less than three months and helped put my life back on track. That may sound extreme, but as a senior at Texas A&M University just months away from graduation with a top-tier job offer on the line and very little time to spare, Shane was exactly the right person to defend me against the criminal charges I had been arrested for. He wasn’t the first lawyer I consulted with, but shortly after our initial conversation began in his pristine private office, I knew that I would be hiring him. Results, communication, confidence, staff-excellence, and ease-of-payment are all words I would use to describe my experience with Shane’s law practice.
The results speak for themselves.
Shane did all the legwork to provide expunction of my charges and arrest record; it doesn’t get better than that. While never promising outcomes he can’t guarantee, Shane’s confident communication settled my worries and allowed me to concentrate on my school and personal life in a time of much trouble and confusion. In each conversation, Shane would explain the options in front of us, avoiding any “lawyer speak”, and make an experienced recommendation to help guide my decision. I felt relieved that I had a capable defense attorney representing me in something that started out so awfully.
Finally, my entire experience with Shane’s practice was magnified by the wonderful staff he has placed around him. Whether I was talking with his associate attorneys or an office assistant, everyone was knowledgeable and helpful. If you shop around for representation, you’ll realize that Shane provides a great value for quality legal defense services. He offered me a payment plan that I could afford, which is critical for a college student, or anyone else, with very little cash flow. On top of that, his friendly staff accepts credit card payments over the phone, something that is rare among professional service providers. It is for these reasons, among many more, that I urge anyone in the region needing top-notch legal defense to give Shane’s office a call, schedule a consultation, and see what he can do for you. You may end up as happy as I am.
My son is a college student at Texas A&M and got into some legal trouble that included a misdemeanor and a felony. I was referred to Attorney Shane Phelps by another A & M student that had also used his services. I was a nervous wreck! Shane Phelps always, always comforted me when I needed comforting and viewed my son as the great human being that he is and not just a client. I always felt that Shane Phelps truly cared about my son, his future and our family. I would highly recommend Attorney Shane Phelps for his knowledge of the law and definitely for his compassionate and caring heart!
Not only would I recommend Shane, I will use him again if needed. He is extremely knowledgeable and yet somehow does not come across as arrogant. Shane makes you feel as though you are his only client. He returns your call promptly and keeps you informed along the way. If you are in need of an experienced attorney, Shane should be your first call.
Shane, represented me in a Appeal Case in Burleson County, Texas, which involved a building contractor. When I first met Shane he told me what to expect (pros and cons) I felt Shane done some extensive research before discussing any stratagies. He was very up front with each stratagy and cost of my case. Because of my work schedule he arranged and appeared in court without my presence. When I made calls to his office if he wasn't available he would return my calls promptly. If I ever needed a Lawyer to represent me in the future I wouldn't hesitate to call Shane to represent me again.
