Mr. Shepard is an awesome attorney! When I first was charged with theft, I was scared of what could happen to me. I called Mr. Shepard's office and he saw me on a Saturday for a free consultation. Speaking with him immediately put my nerves at ease. He was knowledgeable, compassionate, asked the right questions, and seemed to genuinely care about me and my case. I hired Mr. Shepard on the spot. Prior to my court date, Mr. Shepard kept me informed about my case and never left me in the dark. On my court date, my case ended up going to trial and it was clear that Mr. Shepard had done his homework and was well prepared because we won. I cannot thank Mr. Shepard enough for all he did to help me and I highly recommend him.

I recently hIred Mr. Shepard as my attorney for a case. Let me start by saying when I contacted him to talk about my case he wasn't available, so I left a message. He returned my call within a few hours. I gave him a little backround on my case and we scheduled a time to meet. He asked me what my favorite non alcoholic beverage was and made sure I had that drink when we met. He reviewed my case and talked about different aspects. When it came time to talk about what the fees were going to be Mr Shepard worked well within my budget. I knew from this moment he wasn't a money hungry attorney, that he actually cared. My case ended up moving from district to circuit court which of course had some higher fees. But let me tell you Mr. Shepard refunded me over half of what I paid and calculated my new fees still keeping it at a decent price so I didnt have to come up with too much more. I was able to talk to Mr. Shepard whenever I needed too. He always returned my calls and kept me up to date with what he was working on. He also has mycase which allowed me to see every paper filed on my behalf or anything that he received. I met with Mr. Shepard a few times regarding my case and he always had my favorite drink waiting for me. He walked me threw step by step of what was going to happen, and I never doubted his work ethic. Today my case finally went to court. I had 4 felony charges against me. My ending result was my case put on stet with no guilty charge. I have to pay a small restitution in 6 months and then these cases will be expunged off my record at no additional fee. That's right even after my court date Mr. Shepard is STILL going to work on my case to get it removed of my record. He is a very honest, non judgemental, hard working attorney. If you have any legal trouble I would definitely recommend him. Nobody intends on needing a defense attorney, but if you find yourself in the same place I found myself, not knowing where to go next.... Mr. Shepard will help you. I am home tonight with my kids and family because of him. THANK YOU SO MUCH MR. SHEPARD.

We contacted Stephen and were pleased that he met with us on a weekend. From the first meeting, we knew we had made the right decision. Stephen was patient, thorough and considerate. He knew the law and carefully explained our options. He listened to our concerns and was available whenever we had questions. He made what was a difficult time for us go by smoothly and he handled our court appearances professionally, presenting our case well. We liked the app that allowed for sending and receiving messages and documents - this was very convenient. All in all, we were totally satisfied. Stephen is a great and caring lawyer.

Mr. Shepard always conducted himself in the most professional manner and was on top of my case from the moment that I hired him as my counsel. He kept me informed via a convenient app for my phone with very updated request for information or form that was involve in my legal proceedings and he effectively provided his legal advice and greatly aided me in getting the best result possible.

Mr. Shepard from the time I looked at AVVO to I was impressed. Stephen met us on a Sunday - which I thought was quite attentive. The case was for my son and it wasn't a simple case. My son was leaving for the Navy and a suspended license & tickets would stop him from going in. Stephen was organized, on time, had refreshments for you at the first meeting. He already working the case because he had the charges. I don't need lawyers usually - you can bet he will be the one I call and if anyone needs an attorney- I will give them your name and number. I want to thank you. E left for boot camp and he is doing well.

Stephen has brought our family so much peace! After being charged w serious traffic offenses and getting ready to leave for the military, consulting w Steve put my mind at peace. He was thorough, consistent and straight forward with everything! My family and I were going through the military transitioning and moving to a different state with all that we had on our plates Steve worked with us with all our needs! I am beyond pleased and so thankful for all that Steve has accomplished for my case!

Mr. Shepard is not only courteous with his clients, he is an expert in Maryland law! I was recommended to him by a few friends of mine. Mr. Shepard has a great practice and great experience! I'd recommend him to anyone!

I've known Steve since autumn of 2013. The first day I met him, I was overwhelmed with relief due to how much he had looked into my case. He was very kind and noticeably caring. Saying that he is organized is an understatement. You will not just be another client to him. He never overlooked a single detail throughout my entire case, from my consultation to my expungement. I don't know much about law, and even less about being a lawyer. But I DO know that my case was not simple. I always felt that Steve was doing absolutely anything and everything in his power to represent me, and counsel me as best as possible. I never had a doubt in my mind that I had chosen the best possible attorney to defend me. At the end of my last court date, Steve received a significant verbal compliment from the judge about the way he handles his profession. As we walked out the doors of the court room, we were followed by the states attorney, who claimed that in the long time she had worked with that particular judge, she had never seen him compliment an attorney. Honestly, I was not surprised at all to hear that at all. Steve is one of a kind. I can promise you that.

It's very difficult to choose a defense attorney without a recommendation from someone. I went through a long list of people and came across an article about a woman who charged a set amount for services & charges were reasonable. I contacted her & she no longer does criminal defense . She highly recommended Stephen so we contacted him to defend our son. We are very glad that we did. He was very thorough & knowledgeable. He was always available to both us & our son, who is incarcerated. I think that he worked hard to get the best result & helped with things that weren't part of our agreement. We wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.
