I recently hired the law firm of Schaffer & Black, PC in Frederick, MD to represent me with my extremely difficult and complex Violation of Probation conviction stemming from an embezzlement conviction in 2010. This conviction was the result of my financial crime, one of the largest in the County in which I had previously resided. Having gone through several lawyers during my 7-year ordeal, one of which was disbarred for misappropriation of client funds, I was blessed to find Byron Black, the attorney who handled my case. Mr. Black went well beyond my expectations and hopes in finally being able to find a lawyer who not only understands the law, but is sincerely dedicated to understanding your case and ensuring that justice is properly served. Although well educated, I had no previous experience with either incarceration or probation and unfortunately, I soon learned that our legal system is a dangerous web and those whom should be there to give you guidance are so over burdened with other cases, that you are simply another file and their lack of sound advice may end you back in prison. Mr. Black was always there, always and promptly returned my calls and emails and did far more work then the compensation I was able to pay to his firm allowed. My advice from someone with a 100-year sentence and having spent 5-years of that sentence behind bars but is now free and able to remain with his family is always, always seek out the best lawyer you can. My advice is contact Schaffer & Black, PC and ask for Mr. Black.

Bryon took the time to make sure I got the best defense and outcome for my case. He took extra time to make sure of this even though he was on a fixed fee and it added to his time. I hope I never need another defense attorney but I would highly recommend Bryon to anybody who does.

Bryon was a superb attorney to work with. He was very responsive to emails and phone calls. I appreciated his excellent communication skills! He understood our needs and worked with us. He is very knowledgeable and will most certainly would recommend him.
