Excellent Attorney
I can't think of anyone I'd rather hire for my legal needs than Mr. Snively. He's thoughtful and considerate (which is rare for a lawyer), but also knowledgeable and persistent in fighting for your needs. He's great.

Tim is definitely the lawyer to put on your speed dial
Tim is always there when I need anything. He has always gotten excellent results for me. I would never use anyone else.

Family Law Consultation
Mr. Snively offered clear, concise advice. He explained what I could do to resolve my situation and gave me instructions on how to follow up with him if needed. I have one more source to check, per his instructions, and if it doesn't resolve the problem, I will hire Mr. Snively to proceed with my case.

Divorce
Tim was extremely professional and quick. He explained everything step by step and always made himself available to me for questions. I would recommend Tim to anyone I know that is seeking legal counsel. It was by far a positive experience considering the circumstances.

Very pleased.
Mr. Snively went above and beyond my expectations by working very hard during my divorce. I expected to possibly loose everything i ever worked for but most important of all not only did he work hard for me to keep my home and shop he won me full custody of my 3 children. I did not even think it was possible but its what i wanted to do to at least try and he informed me it may not happen to be prepared for the worst but in the end of our trial we won. I comend Mr. Snively for all his hard work and effort he put into my case getting ready for court. Dont get me wrong i will recommend him to anyone but iam also aware every case is different. I do know he will fight for his clients to all of his ability to do what he can. I want to also add during the process of very hard times of my divorce i couldn't believe what was happening it was the hardest time of my life but Tim spoke with me through it all and he is very experienced so he kept me calm as i could be and assured me he was going to do everything he can. On the day of the trial when the judge made the decision it was a new beginning and good start of a new chapter in my life with my 3 beautiful children thanks to Mr. Snively. Thank you Tim i will forever be great full.

Solid.
I was extremely happy working with Mr. Snively during my car accident case. He helped me understand what was going on through every step of my lawsuit and remained very professional and accessible. I felt very comfortable with him and received honest feedback, which I appreciated (and is hard to find in a lawyer). I would definitely recommend him to friends and family if God forbid they need any legal help. He was knowledgeable and was able to guide me in the right direction.

RIGHT/WRONGFUL SUSPENSION
I Rate fair, because the question I asked was very important and I had a great concern, I wasn't completely sure about the reply he gave me, so I had asked a 2nd question and he Ignored it, and never replied back to me. It gave me no hope to even try to temp to ask any other lawyer any questions.
