THE ONLY ATTORNEY YOU NEED
Steve and David came in with less than 90 days and saved my case from a law firm that obviously was not working in my best interest. I had many sleepless nights dealing with a dishonest attorney, Steve and his team took away all the anxiety that I was feeling and won my case. I highly recommend you stop your search and give Steve a call. Trust me....you can trust Steve and his team to be honest and prepared to work on "your" behalf.

Excellent arbitration attorney
I retained Mr. Lewicky for a contractor arbitration. Mr. Lewicky provided excellent counsel. He was extremely knowledgeable and thorough putting together my case, aligning the facts to present a clear timeline of events with supporting evidence. Arbitration is daunting process and can be difficult to win. Mr. Lewicky fought hard on my behalf wining a decent award. He also made sure the award document contained language that allowed me to collect part of the award through the Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC). That option became very useful as the contractor delayed payment of the award; however continued push from Mr. Lewicky’s firm and the MHIC involvement helped get the contractor to pay the full award with interest.

Real Estate Contract
Our experience with Attorney Steve Lewicky was a time sensitive real estate transaction and the professional decorum thread of support and advise was seamless through every detail. The level of transparency regarding the outcome of our decisions gave us a clear and concise picture of the law and our rights. The outcome of our experience gave us a voice. We highly recommend Mr. Steve Lewicky and the entire firm.

Wonderful lawyer
Mr. Lewicky is an extremely knowledgeable and thorough attorney. He has a very calm, professional manner but represented me with the steel and vigor that was needed to win my case. In preparation for my trial, he consistently responded to all my questions/concerns in a timely manner. Mr. Lewicky's demeanor, knowledge and preparation helped reduce my stress in court. I would recommend him without reservation.

Commercial Real Estate Owner
I have hired a few different attorneys over time for various reasons, but Steve really stands out from the bunch because of how available and personable he is not to mention how knowledgeable and good at his job he is. He takes the time to interact directly with his clients and to talk through their concerns. If I ever have questions (which I tend to have many), he always gets back to me within a very reasonable time. I can confidently say, that he leaves his clients feeling taken care of.

Amazing Lawyer
Mr. Steven is a great lawyer. After searching for many lawyers, I found him to be very honest, straightforward and clear. He knows his law very well and he is very methodical in his strategy. He will walk you through the problem and then the aftermath. I have nothing but good thoughts about him

An attorney who really listens, cares, and knows what he's doing.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Lewicky during a 10-minute phone consultation to discuss my situation, and ask questions about the governing laws. First of all, he really listens to you. I had a potential threat of a lawsuit from my previous employer for breaching the non-compete covenant, and I couldn't help but feel that he really wants to help me from the way he actively listened to every detail I shared with him. He shared his thoughts on my case based on the relevant laws and similar court cases, and took time to answer my general questions. I felt very re-assured of my choice of attorney to reach out to about my case, and felt "safe" knowing I have found the right person. In an interesting turn of events, I no longer needed legal representation or advice related to this issue with the former employer, but I know who I would reach out to again should I ever need someone in this specialty area of law.

Excellent lawyer for mediation
We contacted Mr. Lewicky based on his internet reviews since we are located out of state and did not know any lawyers in the area. His online reviews did not let us down and he successfully saw us through a complicated case. Steven was able to effectively communicate everything to us regarding the process and different strategies. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

Very Knowledgable and Excellent Service
I retained Mr. Steven regarding a non-compete issue in an employment contract. Though most of the things he knew on the top of the head, still his answers were well researched and very relevant to the subject matter. I got whatever I wanted and Mr. Steven did not try to sell me anything and rather advised me not to pursue the litigation further as it would not be financially advantageous to me. I would recommend my friends to retain Mr. Steven Lewicky in his diverse areas of expertise.

Outstanding Legal Services
Steve provided expert advice on several occasions this year on different matters. He thoroughly researched questions and provided wise advice in response to all questions. If a question falls outside his area of expertise, he will be forthright and honest in his response. He is immediately responsive, which is greatly appreciated in timely matters. He excels in comparison to other Howard County lawyers I've dealt with. I highly recommend his services.

Contract Review
Steve was immediately available to provide legal opinion, so that we could make appropriate decisions. Also, he was able to address our questions while he was away in California for another job. He treated our concerns equal to the other big case he was working on.

Impressive Employment Contract Lawyer
I contacted Mr. Lewicky regarding an employment contract and non-compete issue and he returned my call within a couple hours. In our initial meeting, he met with me for a significant portion of time so he could know learn details of the situation and make sure we knew the appropriate way to move forward. He is honest and well versed in employment contracts, Maryland employment law, and non-compete clauses. I'm glad I found him.
