Knowledgeable, personable, and accessible!
Working with Attorney Seth Shich was one of the best experiences I have ever had working with an attorney. He immediately stood out with his approachable and concerned demeanor. He is very well versed and has great skills to rationalize and cut through arguments from a rational stand point. He was always accessible, often calling me outside of office hours if need be and always making time within a couple days. After I could not afford Seth, I retained him for legal counsel. I would definitely recommend and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.

Combated an unprofessional with professionalism
Seth was referred to me from the Montgomery Co. Bar Association. The matter involved adult siblings and the estate of their parents. Seth had to deal with a "respected" attorney that did not return phone calls or emails, constantly made excuses for his obvious incompetence, could not spell, did not proofread his work, and was more than once caught in an obvious lie. Amidst all of this mess, Seth shined. He cited law. He educated himself on a legal matter that happens all too often (family disputes). The matter was settled. My life continues.

Small Business Advocate
Thank you Attorney Shich for all you are doing to help my company by provided representation that forces big companies and the government to treat small businesses fairly. Thank you for giving my business a chance to survive when I thought all was lost.

I consulted with Seth about a family issue and he did an excellent job in answering my questions and concerns. In the future with my legal needs, I will definitely hire Seth.

Excellent Negotiator - Truly Cares About His Clients
I retained Seth to represent me with my breach of contract case and he did an excellent job. Not only did he manage to settle the case at the initial hearing, against all odds, but the settlement terms were much more favorable than I was hoping for. I will definitely stick with Seth for any future legal needs!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Mr. Shich was Opposing Counsel in a Legal Separation Matter in the Superior Court for the District of Columbia. When meeting Mr. Shich in person I immediately noticed that he was a very polished young lawyer. In court he was articulate, smart, and assertive without being arrogant. While ready to litigate the matter before the court, Seth's strong point was in his ability to reach a settlement without drawn out litigation. I would recommend him."
