Testimonials

 As Pittsburgh Attorneys, there are few things more important to us than our reputation, and we do everything we can to achieve successful results for our clients.  

I was falsely accused of sexual assault and abuse.  I didn’t know where to turn until I was referred to Steve.  He handled my case with professionalism and with the resourced that my case demanded.  Through his hard work and the assistance of his investigator, my case was dismissed prior to trial.  I highly recommend Steve to anyone who has been charged with a crime.

______________________________________________

We were very pleased with Steve Townsend’s representation. This is the second time that we used him. He was successful in securing a very good agreement on both occasions. He is knowledgeable and efficient.

______________________________________________

I hired Steve to represent me when someone stole my credit card numbers, he got all my money back even after the local DA refused to prosecute. I hired him later to represent an addict relative, Steve helped him get into a rehab center and 3/4 house instead of jail. Hopefully my relative will take advantage of this opportunity.

Mr. Steve Townsend helped me save my firearm license by challenging the prosecutor’s case.  He was very knowledgeable about the laws and knows how to push back and fight.  If I would not have called him I don’t what I would have done.  Thank you so much for your help.

Attorney Townsend was very professional and compassionate to a very delicate situation. We were scared and did not know where to turn. He knew exactly how to resolve the criminal case quickly and efficiently. I appreciated his knowledge and professionalism. I highly recommend him. Thanks Steve!

After making several calls to attorneys in the Pittsburgh area without much luck, I was given Mr. Townsend’s number by a friend. The primary problem that I encountered was the combination of a hectic work schedule and living out of state limiting my travel options (most attorneys weren’t willing to represent me without my traveling to PA). Mr. Townsend handled everything expertly, promptly and courteously and I didn’t have to make a single trip to PA to have my legal issue resolved. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.

Attorney Townsend defended me on a case four years ago in the Harrisburg area, Dauphin County. The trial lasted four days, with a verdict of not guilty. Attorney Townsend was very diligently in researching all of the evidence, and planned the defense strategic. I believe if it was not for the hard work and time that Attorney Townsend put into this case, the outcome would have been a lot different.

I was told that I couldn’t win my DUI by several attorneys. I’m so glad I called Mr. Townsend. He took my case to trial and we won. You saved my job and my family.

Steve Townsend is highly regarded in the Pittsburgh region and I am very happy to say that his professionalism and reliable understanding of the law has resulted in a complete dismissal of both a PFA and Simple Assault charge that was filed by my spouse.

Mr. Townsend was by my side throughout the entire process and was able to see right through my spouses false accusations. I highly recommend Mr. Townsend for anyone that is in a similar situation.

It is very unfortunate that PFA’s are handed out like candy these days, but having an attorney like Mr. Townsend representing you is without a doubt money well spent.

M.C.

Thank you Mike for allowing me the opportunity to represent you in both your criminal and PFA matters. I am glad things worked out as they should and just prevailed, but I am sorry you had to endure the process. You know that if you ever need anything all you have to do is ask. It truly was a pleasure.

Also, thank you for your service to this country!! That cannot be understated.

To:   Thomas Gravina, Esquire,

My wife and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your great work settling our auto accident case. The final agreement had exceeded our expectations. Your knowledge of the system as well as in depth medical knowledge allowed us to concentrate on regaining my wife’s health. As we learned auto insurance can be a very complicated system. It is also important to note that your associate Franci made sure we knew the status of our claim at all times. Never once did we wait more than one minute to speak to either yourself or Franci when we had a question. It is great to have a true advocate on your side that can explain things into plain language. We had that with you and Franci. In this day and age it is rare that one has someone looking out for their client. The whole process and result proved to us that you go over and above to protect your client.

In the future if I should need legal advice or assistance you will be my “go to” law firm.

Thank You and Best Regards

Firearms Violation Dismissed

I was charged with falsifying an application to purchase a shotgun.  I was facing a felony and a misdemeanor.  My attorney, Steve Townsend, got the case dismissed and tossed out at the preliminary hearing.  Thank you so much for convincing me into taking the case to a hearing rather than allowing me to plead guilty.  Now I know why experience counts!  I was told by several people to plead guilty because I was facing jail time if found guilty. Mr. Townsend gets results!!

Exceeded Expectations

I was in a very bad situation and felt like I had no way out. Mr. Townsend was able to resolve my criminal issue without a trial or a plea. When I saw his relations with the police officers and prosecutors, I knew he had the confidence and respect to handle my case. I strongly recommend contacting him you have a criminal case.  J.R.

Oil and Gas

Posted by a Oil & Gas client

I signed an oil and gas lease with a landowner group. The groups’ attorney who negotiated our lease, apparently wasn’t representing the individual landowners. I contacted Steve at ShaleAdvice and he straightened out our issue with professionalism. I would recommend Steve for any oil and gas issue you may have.

Help with criminal matter

Posted by John, Barrett a Criminal Defense client

Pittsburgh attorney, Steve Townsend, was an outstanding attorney, who saved my career after I was charged in a criminal matter. He is knowledgeable of the law and he is extremely thorough in his preparation. Mr. Townsend was impressive during trial and he appeared confident and  relaxed. He picked apart the prosecution, seemingly with ease, and got me acquitted of all charges.
Mr. Townsend is a man of his word. He came up with a plan for defense, and stayed with the plan. If you have a serious legal problem, I strongly recommend Attorney Steve Townsend.  John Barrett
