My son got a negligent driving infraction. Mr. Shuman probably could have pursued a deferral or reduction, instead he litigated the case for us and won a non committed judgement. Very impressive representation. Mr. Schuman and his wife Valerie have a good practice and I highly recommend their services.
Stephen Shuman provides excellent service and tells you up front exactly what he can or can't do. He represented my trucking company on over weight and moving violations for more than seven years never losing a case!
I first met Stephen in my late 20's when I purchased a speedy car that got me a few infractions in a short amount of time. Stephen was very responsive and let me know I had nothing to worry about. He was right, I had nothing to worry about as he was able to get all of my infractions dismissed. I even received a negligent driving 2 ticket that he was able to get dismissed.
Stephen even helped me fight an illegal left turn ticket that I hadn't paid him for. We both thought the court date was for another ticket, and it turned out it was a different one that had a quicker turnaround as far as a court date. He talked to me for over an hour and gave me all the ammunition I needed to have the ticket dismissed myself. His advise worked perfect and my infraction was dismissed.
Stephen did have a tendency not to return calls for a while there. But he always showed up in court and got things dismissed, even though I spent a few worried nights wondering if he was going to remember to show up.
He now has a partner, Valarie, and the last few times I've called their office, she has returned my calls very quickly. So I believe she helps keep their clients more informed and improve their responsiveness.
Overall, I would highly recommend Stephen and Valerie. They definitely do what they say they can do and can beat just about any ticket.
My experience with Shuman Law Firm has been excellent! They are friendly, easy to work with, and reasonably priced considering the money you save in the long run when they win. Their services have been excellent, as they helped us over the last year getting 3 traffic tickets dismissed. I have referred them to two different people and theirs were dismissed as well, including a seat belt ticket! I would highly recommend them and would definitely use them again if needed!
