About Steven

Learn Steven’s areas of practice.

I work hard for my clients, but I also spend time with my family.  I have two toddler boys and a beautiful wife.  I attend church regularly and I'm a believer in Christ.  These are the reasons I do what I do.  

 

I defend those that can't help themselves and those charged with heinous crimes with passion because that's what God has given me the ability to do.  And I fight for the rights of parents during a divorce because I know what's a stake in these matters.  

 

I am an avid Alabama Crimson Tide Fan which is really the only hobby I have time to enjoy.  The University of Alabama will always have a special place in my heart because that's where I met my wife, a beautiful sorority girl I fell in love with the moment I saw her.  We started beautiful family together and Alabama helped make that happen.  Roll Tide!

You can never go wrong with him
This is the best Criminal Justice I have ever seen. Everything was perfectly done and I am so happy I can now live the life I deserved and not the life of a criminal. I will forever be grateful to you.

Highly Recommend
When you find yourself in need of a lawyer, you undoubtedly want the most qualified. Not only does Mr. Eversole have all of the credentials, but he diligently, knowledgeably, and strategically worked on my behalf to ensure that our desired outcome was obtained. Finding myself in the midst of a divorce/custody battle, I was so grateful for the representation of Steven Eversole. I would recommend him to anybody seeking nothing short of the best in the area.

Best Lawyer I have ever worked with
Best law firm in Birmingham! I've used them for marriage related issues as well as criminal matters, and I've never had any issues. I have zero complaints about this firm. The entire staff is knowledgeable and incredibly nice. I've send several friends to them and they also have had nothing but positive experiences. Thank you, Eversole!

I am delighted with the result of my case
Steven is a great listener, works incredibly hard, and brings an energy that is hard to match. He treated me with the utmost respect and answered all of my questions. His flat fee is also fair based on the other estimates I received. He was very detailed and took his time to make sure I understood every step of the process. Finally, he fought hard, and I am delighted with the result of my case.

Really Good Experience
Steven Douglas Eversole is a fantastic lawyer who prioritizes both winning and establishing a positive relationship with his clients. Perhaps most remarkable was his ability to design several unique, efficient and calculated actions that allowed him to develop a highly successful strategy for us. If you're looking for someone, who will fight tooth and nail for you, here you go. We are thankful to have had such a good experience and outcome.

Dedicated to client's rights!!!!!
I don't even know where to start. Eversole Law should have been the first firm I hired in Alabama and not the last. I needed Steve to help with an appeal from the Family Court to the Court of Civil Appeals and despite the horrible decision from the Court's. (on every level in my case) Ashley, Steve and Sam worked very hard and diligent to argue for my family and tried very hard to fix things that were very wrong. Their knowledge of the law and their passion for their clients rights were always apparent to me. I felt as though I was his family and he was my big brother sticking up for me when I couldn't. Even from 700 miles away. My case was a super complex interstate UCCJEA case that originated from a Divorce in Virginia and since has returned there. If by chance I EVER need any Legal representation in Alabama in the future he will be the first person I call. Ashley was always pleasant, responsive and on top of everything. I never felt once that they didn't have time to listen to me or answer a question. I never felt that they didn't have my best interest at heart or a plan of action. Everything was filed promptly, as discussed and adressed my situation. Their communication with myself and my wife was above expectation. Some people say Lawyers don't get personal about clients or cases, or that they don't care about the outcome. I can honestly say I disagree (I could hear it in his voice he care's)! I was left with the feeling that they did absolutely everything they could have done with what they were handed. And on such short notice at that. I truly believe if I had hired him first the outcome would have been extremely different. I'd give them 10 stars if I could. Ashley, Steve and Sam if you should see this review. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you!

A cut above the rest!!
I have to say, the day we got the call from my son saying he was in serious criminal trouble in Alabama, I thought it was a no win situation and that serious jail time was ahead for him. He had class A felony charges filed against him with 10 years to 99 years sentences possible. Being from the northeast I had nowhere to turn to or anyone to help us. Well, after reading many reviews about Steven Eversole law firm and that he specializes in these types of crimes and having read how people felt comfortable with him and had great results, I decided to give him a call. From day one Steven assured me that he would fight very hard for my son and would do his best to see that the least amount of jail time would be served. That's what i wanted to hear. Through out the legal process Steven and his team walked us through the whole judicial system in an unfamiliar state. Sam Dixon who was assigned to our case couldn't have been better. The way he interacted with the judge and prosecuting attorneys was professional and done with great skill. I was amazed and quite stunned that a probation sentence was given instead of any prison time. Im not sure we would have gotten those results with anyone else. I would highly recommend hiring Steven Eversole law firm for whatever situation you find yourself in that needs attorney assistance. A heart felt thank you Steven and also to your entire team!!

Aggressive and exactly what my case needed!!
I needed to hire an attorney for my contested divorce. I was extremely nervous to do so because there were so many to choose from and I had no idea where to start. My husband had already threatened to take everything from me and I needed the right attorney. I found Mr. Eversole online and immediately schedule an appointment to hopefully get everything started. He met with me the same day and calmed my nerves regarding the entire process. He gave me my confidence back and was extremely aggressive against the other side. We are almost over with the entire divorce proceedings and i couldn't be happier with the result. THANK YOU Mr. Eversole for believing in me and doing everything you could to fight for me case!!

Excellent lawyer and all around good people here!
I highly recommend Steven Eversole and his firm. I've interacted with several lawyers in the past and they are hands down the best. They fight hard for what's right and are aggressive without being needlessly so. They kept me up to date, I even had cell number of Mr. Eversole, and they reply almost immediately. I would recommend them over any firm in the city. I was able to achieve all my goals for my family in a very high stress and high consequences matter. If you are really in need in legal counsel regarding a criminal or family law matter(my case involved both unfortunately), call them first. You wont be sorry.

SO relieved I picked Eversole Law!
Today Eversole Law firmed changed my life. I was facing criminal charges that were absolutely false and without them I could of been facing jail time! Mr. Eversole and his associate attorney really fault for me in one of the hardest times of my life. Thank yall for being patient with me and answering all my questions!!
Posted by JD | October 1, 2014
Very good experience
I found Mr. Eversole and his staff to be wonderful to work with. They kept me up to date beyond my previous experience with other lawyers, and worked hard to keep us informed of every aspect of our case. They ultimately helped me through a tough situation and didn't look at me as a client, or the person that pays them. I felt they truly looked at me as a person, and that made me want to write this review. Mr. Eversole has been around and knows his stuff and they worked hard on my case. I received precise monthly billing and they always did what they promised me. They fought hard and like it was personal. I trust Steve Eversole and his firm to take care of my more important business.

Life Changing!
Eversole Law firm did a great job. They kept me informed and really worked hard on my case. It took some time, but because of Steven and Adam, the judge ruled in my favor. And as a result, my life is better now thanks to the Eversole Law Firm. I am truly thankful.

Two Amazing People!
Mr Eversole and Mr Fancher did an amazing job for me! I was scared about going through a divorce, didn't know where to start, or even what to expect. They both held my hand through the entire process and made a very difficult time in my life a lot easier then I expected. I have heard such horror stories from friends going through divorces about never knowing what was going on through out the whole thing with their attorneys. Mr Eversole and Mr Fancher were very accessible and answered every question I had very thoroughly. I know I was not their only client, however, the time they spent with me made me feel as if I were. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
