Super Lawyer
Bradley Shepherd was amazing at guiding me through the whole legal process. The legal implications of what was involved was foreign to me, so having his knowledge and guidance was very important. I was very impressed with his expertise, honesty, and forth rightedness. He explained all my options in a way that was understandable. He was worth every penny and more. I would highly recommend BSS Law.

Thank you very much
Great guy. Super smart and knowledgeable, breaks down the risks, options, puts himself as the lawyer on the other side and what he would do if the shoe were on the other foot, so to speak. Appreciate you, Brad. I really don't want it come to litigation, but if it does, I know where to go. Will keep you in mind for any unrelated issues as well.

Professional and easy to get work done with!
From the moment you first talk to Brad, you get a sense that you will be in good hands. His easy going manner and attention to detail made it very effective in our use of time. He provided great explanation of what we would be covering as well as answered any and all questions that came up in our discussions. But the best part of doing business with Brad, was that you knew that he was going to give you the advice based on the letter of the law. I highly recommend him if you are considering any legal work in the future...thanks Brad for making it a pleasant process.

The only lawyer I trusted to do my family planning
While I don't think that anyone particularly enjoys planning end of life care, I must say that working with Brad made the experience as positive as possible. Despite the sensitive nature of will drafting, Brad was incredibly professional, compassionate and astoundingly patient as he explained the entire process to my family. We left our consultation feeling informed, prepared and at ease. I strongly recommend working with him to give you and your family peace of mind, no matter what the circumstances may be. Incredibly responsive, attentive, patient, compassionate and fastidiously detail oriented.

Young, Energitic and fighter
Mr. Shepard is an excellent attorney. He is young, energetic and eager to win. He provided me a good counsel about the trail and before that too. The line of communication was always open, and he answered all the questions with details. At the same time, he was answered all the calls and replied to my text messages in a timely manner basis as well. I highly recommend him, because he is friendly, flexible, affordable and a fighter attorney. He is a real deal and at the top of his game all the time. Mr. Shepard, thanks for your service and you’re the man. Note: plea is an easy deal and a good way for all the parties, accept the defendant sometimes. So, use your mind see and ask yourself, is there enough evidence to put your ass in danger if yes, no one in the planet will safe you period. If there is none, then be brave and fight till end of the game ✌️

Very Helpful and Professional
The assistance Mr. Shepherd gave to my son was beyond reproach. I live some 600 miles away and Mr. Shepherd kept me informed regarding my son's case. He showed me the same respect as he did my son and made a mom feel very secure that he would take care of him even though I could not be there myself. I am eternally grateful.

Would definitely rehire again!
Mr. Shepherd is great! Extremely accommodating. I contacted him way after business hours and he got back to me right away, said I could call him and asked about my case. During the consultation, he asked me questions, gave suggestions and really made me feel at ease. He’s very personable and really seemed to care. I talked to a few other attorneys before I found him and he’s the only one who I felt treated me as a person who needed help and not just another defense case. My trial was a only a few days away and Mr. Shepherd was with me every step of the way, and even adjusted his schedule to be with me during trial! Without his help and expertise, I don’t know what I would’ve done. Mr. Shepherd is a great attorney and I highly recommend him to anyone. I would hire him again and again.

Thank you
In September I received four punitive driving violations while speeding in Maryland. My driver's license was at stake of being suspended or hit with the maximum amount of points. Mr. B. Shepherd Esq, advised and represented me at a court hearing and my $1300+ fines were reduced to $90 with 1 point assessed. I am so grateful for the outcome and having found such a knowledgeable and professional attorney! I will definitely be referring. Thank you again

Accessible, Professional, and Genuine
Bradley’s lawyer services are the best I’ve encountered. He is highly accessible and responsive which eased my stress in needing a lawyer to begin with. He is genuine; telling me information up front, and maintaining honestly and integrity throughout our business together. A very reliable and approachable lawyer that I highly recommend and would absolutely use again.

Saved Me from a Huge Mistake
My landlord threatened to get me fired at my job because I wanted out of a stalled short-sale contract and had made major property alterations. He wanted me to extend the short-sale contract, despite the fact that I'd found another house, and wanted me to pay him twice what I owed. Bradley Shepherd addressed all of my issues with my landlord directly, so that I never had to deal with him in person, and he ensured that my landlord cannot take any legal action against me. That was an incredibly stressful time for me, and Mr. Shepherd made the experience so much easier than it could have been, simply by receiving the hostility that was meant for me. Thank you, Bradley!

Blown Away Impressed
As a couple who are in their late 50s, it can be very difficult to look at a young attorney like Bradley and trust that this person, who is half our age, will be able to help. However, we can attest that Bradley is one of the most knowledgeable, energetic, and compassionate attorneys that we've ever worked with. We had a tenant who refused to pay us thousands of dollars in back rent, and worse, was refusing to leave our property. As soon as we hired Bradley, he took action, and within a month, our tenant was gone, and we were well on our way to collecting our back rent owed. It shocks us to know that landlord / tenant law is only a small portion of what Bradley does because he knew it so well. We would recommend him to anyone, and if we ever need help again, we know where to go.

Totally satisfied client
Bradley Shepherd was professional and made the entire process completely clear as to what steps we would have to go through. He kept me updated on every step and gave advise when it was needed. Any time I or my wife had a question he always got back to us in a timely manor and was always honest with his response, never kept us waiting. It was a long process but kept us well informed through each step. We would highly recommend Bradley Shepherd to any one who may needs council and if I myself need any in the future I will contact him again.
