    Mr. Laird was prompt in responding to my request for information and a quote. He was direct with the information I requested and performed the service sooner than I had expected. There was no need to check behind him, he informed me when the matter was resolved and that the outcome was just as he intended. I am thankful for both his efficiency and professionalism. I would highly recommend his services.

    Steve was hired for a false claim against me in the midst of a bitter divorce with an abusive and vindictive ex, who was trying to continue to harass and abuse using the court system. Steve charged a reasonable fee, commiserate with the fairly low amount of work involved in the matter I hired him to defend. He also worked with us in making the payment. I already was using the firm for my divorce and custody. Steve listened to the whole situation, even the parts that weren't really relevant to the case at hand. He handled the charge well, was very calm and collected, and really showed the absurdity of the charge. Ultimately we did receive a not guilty verdict.

    I hired him because I seen Mr. Sullivan on mtv. I was told that I was not looking at no probation time, no jail time nothing of that matter. That I would just have to pay court cost and when I got to court I was completely blindsided. I had to do a certain amount of days in jail and ended up with two years of supervised probation. I do not feel that he did everything that he could have done to help me in this situation. I hired him to help me I could have got a court appointed attorney for a lot less and I got thrown under the bus.

    Steven M. Laird’s response: “Mr. Williams had 2 sets of charges. The first was Driving While License Revoked, Resist/Delay/Obstruct, Child Abuse, Possession Schedule II, and Possession of Schedule IV. The second was Driving While License Revoked, Left of Center, and Failure to Maintain Lane Control. At no time did I guarantee any results. I informed him that the maximum penalty was 150 days for the child abuse and 120 days for the Driving While License Revoked (total of 270 days). I told him that I would try to get unsupervised probation (which would include paying court cost and fine and commit no new offenses during the course of that probation), but in no way did I guarantee that result. Attorneys are not allowed to guarantee results. We plead to one count of child abuse and one count of No Operators License (a reduction on the DWLR). The other 6 charges were dismissed. Unfortunately my request for unsupervised probation was denied due to Mr. Williams' extensive criminal history (which was not fully disclosed to me by Mr. Williams). At the end of the day, the Judge has discretion to sentence as he or she feels appropriate and he gave Mr. Williams 24 months of supervised probation and a 30 day split of jail time. Had he hired anyone else, he would have had the same result. This case was handled on February 5, 2015 and there were no complaints (I had spoken to Mr. Williams a few times in the last year). He called me this past Friday (March 25, 2016) to ask if we could have his probation modified. I told him that I strongly doubt the Judge would modify his probation and it was not until after that that Mr. Williams decided to leave me a poor review. All of my other reviews have been 5 stars. I zealously advocate for all of my clients and put forth full efforts in every case. Unfortunately some cases do not go according to plan based on various factors. Mr. Williams results in this case were based on his charges and his extensive record, not due to an issue with my representation.”

    Steve always kept in touch and was easily accessible. He was in court on time and answered all my questions. He made my case very clear to the jury and I was found not guilty in my criminal case. Steve was very personable and and knowledgeable, I highly recommend his experience.

    Mr. Laird handled a suspected DUI for me. It being the only time I've ever had a legal matter I was extremely nervous and he walked me through everything and explained in detail the process as well as all possible outcomes. He kept me informed about everything that was going on and any updates. By the conclusion my case was dismissed.

    I was exceptionally impressed with how professionally he handled the case and how the circumstances of the traffic stop were taken into consideration. Prior to obtaining Mr. Laird I had spoken with three other attorney's who had informed me my chances of anything but conviction were slim to none. His knowledge of the traffic laws and consideration of the circumstances are what made the difference.

    As a fellow attorney, I hired Steve to assist me with a traffic ticket I received while at the beach. Steve was able to obtain a great result and I would use him and his firm again if needed. Thanks Steve!

    Mr. Laird has taken care of several traffic cases for me and his honesty and integrity are unsurpassed. Mr. Laird was always available if I had questions. Although he did not always answer my phone call he did get back to me in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Mr. Laird for all your legal needs.

    I moved out of town and used Mr. Laird for a couple traffic tickets and he was excellent. Got the job done in a speedy manner and was very reliable. Never had to deal with any funny business. A big thank you for saving me time and headaches!
