I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Stewart over six and half years ago. He was highly recommended to me by a family member that was previously represented by Mr. Stewart. I was young when I first meet him, never got into trouble with the law or had dealt with any lawyers in my life before. It was a very tough road for my family and I but because of Mr. Steward we never lost hope. From day one until six and half years later finally when my case ended Mr. Staward was always there for me, responded to my emails, phone calls, text messages within few hours, told me that I should move on with my life and not to worry about my case to much.
He is an excellent lawyer, very respectful, very professional and very knowledgeable about the law.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE that needs a defense lawyer!
Dean is such a rare find! I got really lucky that he took on my case when I couldn't find anyone else. I've never been in any trouble and was dealing with some serious charges. I needed someone with experience and wasn't going to hire just anyone. Dean was exactly what I needed. I've been through so much within the last year and Dean really took all of my personal situations into considerate and was really thoughtful and caring and listened and got to know me as a person and not just another client. He never judged me or treated me like other past attorneys that I have worked with. We went into the case knowing what we wanted and Dean fought really hard and the outcome was exactly what we wanted. Not to mention Dean was always available and responsive weather it be by phone or email I could always count on him to reassure me and answer questions. I am very impressed with how knowledgeable and prepared he is. I have always dealt with Dean directly never his paralegal. Not even sure if he has a paralegal actually. I could go on and on and on about this man, and have nothing but positive things to say about him. I know I would definitely refer him to anyone or hire him again if I ever had to. Thanks Dean for being who you are, I wish there were more genuine people out there like you..
I was highy recommended to H. Dean Steward from another attorney in Los Angeles that found my case to be very complex. I realized after the first interview I was sitting with an expert attorney that really knows the law. It immediatley put me at ease. After working with Mr. Steward, I found him to be bright, knowledgeable, enthusiastic in a very professional way, hard working, listens well, always quick to respond to my questions and concerns and explained all aspects of what I am dealing with. Mr. Steward represented me with great confidence in court, is well respected and I would recommend him wholeheartedly.
A "rare find". A true "diamond in the rough". Number one in the heap". Top end of the "bell curve". What other positive descriptions can I use to describe one of the finest lawyers with whom I have ever had the privilege to work with. Dean has that rare combination of "knowledge", "responsiveness", "flexibility" and "bedside manner", which together leads to the best possible outcome.
Understanding that much is out of his control, his sensitivity to all aspects of a case, including the players, is most important. I never felt alone against the heavy hand of our system. No guarantees of course, but it's important to have the best on your team. I challenge anyone to find a more knowledgeable, trustworthy, and responsive lawyer as H. Dean Steward.
He is a wonderful lawyer that helped my family out so much when we were in need. I would recommend him to anybody.
Dean was there for my family and did what needed to be done without question. He is a great person and truly cares.
Dean represented me in a federal white collar criminal case and did an excellent job. His research capabilities and oral skills in aurguing the case were first rate. In addition to providing the legal support, Dean has been valuable in providing the moral and personal support required to get through one of these situations. I would urge anyone that finds themselve in the difficult position of being charged with a federal crime to contact Dean!
Strictly professional but still very friendly down to earth to make you feel comfortable. Always reply to calls and messages. Strictly respects ethics and strictly abide by the law and use only the objective truth to help my case. Show respect to government prosecutors while protecting me against them. Charges surprisingly little for the massive amount of work, and keeps his commitments when he found out the trial lasted much longer than expected.
Dean made me feel like a real person. I was always informed on what would happen. He is a real person that protected my rights. With a feeling that I was a very bad person on making a bad choice, Dean helped me get my pride back and lead me to do the right things in life. I would recommend him to everyone. He is the MAN. Thank you for all your help.
Dean is a lawyer that truly cares about the well being of his clients. He lay out the case against you in laymen terms. He responds to your calls and concerns as soon as possible, and if for some reason your case trial does not clear you of all charges, like me. Dean will fight on your behalf as hard as he can before and during sentencing, so you can receive to lowest amount of prison time possible, under Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
