When I first contacted Shewmaker and Shewmaker, I was deployed to a forward area trying to navigate through a messy separation, divorce and multiple allegations made by my spouse to my chain of command ranging from adultery and non-payment of support to treason. I cannot adequately express the degree to which Steve and his wife saved my life and my career. They helped me through my marathon divorce, medical discharge from the Army, clearing me of all allegations with my chain of command, and being cleared of all the allegations that stood against me that could have cost me my security clearance and my livelihood. Steve interceded on my behalf with the military and was co-counsel in my divorce proceedings. The assistance I received from Shewmaker and Shewmaker was more than what any other lawyer could have provided. They helped me, guided me through military and civilian courts and legal knots, and stood by me through years of legal entanglements. I would not be where I am if not for them. Steve is the epitome of what army officers and legal professionals should be, but rarely are: honorable, reliable, and professional.
