I had a charge of failure to stop and give information. I hired Steven Shellist after firing my previous lawyer who wasn't showing up on time and was taking a plea bargain without considering if I had a good case or not.
I Hired Steven and he promised me he will fight the case and see it through it was critical because I didn’t want any criminal record which will affect my employment. He update me on the case when any new development came up and was easily approachable. The case eventually was dismissed thanks to his diligence, persistence and professionalism.
I will recommend him to strongly to any my family members or friends.

I was charged with a very vicious assault charge that would send shivers down the spine of any man. I cant remember the last time I had a speeding ticket let alone the monster I was made out to be. Steven Shellist was recommended to us by a friend and after meeting a few lawyers we realized that Steve was head and shoulders above the rest. It was his passion, compassion, and his ability to quickly dissect the case and get to the bottom of it that was very impressive. I found him extremely smart and thoughful with a razor sharp mind. During this 13 month ordeal, he patiently answered all questions and above all helped me get through this tough period. In the end, he was able to get the case dismissed. While I hope I never face a situation like this again, but if I do, I know who to contact. I would recommend Steve in a heartbeat. Overall, a wonderful person who really loves what he does (you will realize that in your first meeting with him). Thanks a lot Steve!

If you or a loved one or even a friend is in need of an Attorney, Steve Shellist should be your 1st choice. He is an amazing lawyer and someone who truly cares for his clients. He was there for me, day or night, for nearly 3 years until my case finally went to trial. Once it did, that was his time to shine. If you're like me, then the thought of a trial and leaving your civil liberties in the hands of strangers is an uncomfortable one ...but this is where Steve truly excels. He is well liked and respected by his peers and very comfortable taking his cases to trial if need be. I can never thank you enough for everything you've done for me and your tireless efforts. Steve will make you feel like family and do everything within his power to get the best results for your case. He was the right man for the job!
Thanks again Steve ...with all my heart. I owe you everything!

I hired Steve years ago. I believe it was around 2007 and Steve was fabulous. He won my case and was extremely pleasant to work with from beginning to end. I referred someone in 2015 for a DWI and he won that case as well. Steve is one of the nicest attorney's around and I cannot say enough great things about him. I will continue to refer others his way.

My husband was unrighteously charged with murder 2 years ago after having to defend himself on our own property. I found Steve's law firm online and hired him and Peyton Peebles to represent my husband. They did way more than just represent us, they treated us like family, Steve and Peyton gave us the support and guidance we needed to get through this legal process that we had never gone through before. They worked late hours and weekends on the case and would meet with us whenever we needed them to. Steve and Peyton's knowledge of the law is unbelievable and it's very apparent that they know exactly what they're doing and talking about. Steve is very diligent in his work, and makes sure to cover every basis and won't stop until he does. He has a fire in him and a passion that is just contagious. Steve was just what my husband needed when it was time to prepare for trial. And because of their outstanding work and expertise my husband was found not guilty by jury. Steve and Peyton's ability to select and connect with the jury along with their ability to present the facts were so passionate and exact, it only took the jury a hour to come back with the not guilty verdict. Steve is absolutely AMAZING in the court room. If you need a trial lawyer and are unsure who to hire, look no further.... Steve Shellist is the man! Thanks again Texas Legal Team!!!! :)

Steve did an outstanding job handling my case. Once we finally went to trial, he completely took over the court room. He Is very passionate in his field, and I truly believe he is one of the best lawyers in Houston.

My dad was arrested for a DWI where his BAC came back a .21, although his video clearly did not match that number. Steve is much more than a lawyer, he knew more about blood than the expert they called to the stand, he dominated the court room. We got a not guilty. I'm sold there is not a better lawyer in Houston. not only is he a great lawyer but a fun guy to be around. Highly recommended.

My fathers case was possesing over 400gr controlled substans with the inted to deliver. My father was scamed by some nigerian men and he did not now that he got narcotics in his luggage. It was a very hard case espaciallly because my father is not American. He is European. But i found Mr. Shellist. He is more than a lawyer. He helps where he can. He always talked to me and helped me to concentrade on the case. He always told me to think positive. He is more than a lawyer. He is an inspiration! He is that one person in life that you met just one time... That one person who will change your life.. That one person who you trust 10000 percent... That one person i will never forget. I am so glad that i have had him by my side all this 10 months. My fathers case went to Trial and get a Not Guilty of the Jury. Steve showed up every important detail. He is a great men. A great lawyer and a great soul! He is a LIFECHANGER! He means the world to me and i recommend him to everyone who need not just a lawyer but also just an optimistic and true friend! He ist the best!

Such a great weight was lifted when my first degree felony charge (theft > $200,000) was dismissed. If you've suffered the indignity of the arrest, jailing, bonding and arraignment process, I know exactly how you feel because I've been there. Fortunately, you don't have to go alone. I hired Steven Shellist as my defense attorney and I have no regrets.
The criminal justice system is slow and unfamiliar. But Steve helped along the way. He knew the right strategy to use at the right time. As a former prosecutor himself he is well known as respected in the community and was able to expertly move the case along toward our mutual goal - complete dismissal. At no time did I ever feel that Steve was just working another case. I completely felt like he was fully on my side and fighting hard for the best outcome.
If you're in a tough spot, I highly recommend hiring Steve. When it really counts, you're going to be glad the big guns are on your side.
