Mr. Sands helped me with some problems that i faced in my business, collecting from customers and overall business advises how to deal with customers regarding getting my money back. Reasonable prices for his service.

Defense against city bureaucracy
He defended me against the bureaucracy of the city. Without his assistance, the city would have railroaded me to a big fine. If I ever needed someone in my corner to stand up for my rights, I would want him on my side.

Shep Sands is a 1st class attorney
Shep has been my families attorney and my personal attorney for over 5 years. I have been self employed most of my life and have had several attorneys throughout 27years. I am blessed to say that all but 1 had been good attorney's but only one has been exceptional and that is Shep Sands. His follow up and follow through is unsurpassed and he is very personalable. He has represented my uncle, sister and myself in an inheritance issue and he did an amazing job with a very difficult case. His efforts brought better results than we were expecting. He has also represented me in a business case against a top 5 national bank that was falsely acussing me of being a guarantor when I was not and won the case for me. I was already impressed with him for his handling of my family case but the job he did against the bank took it to another level. I have never had an attorney go the extra mile for me as Shep did and needless to say he will always be my attorney in any and all matters that he is qualified to handle. Lastly you can look long and hard but will not find an attorney that will represent you as well as Shep Sands.
