  • Both Cases Dismissed!

    Steve Townsend is the exception as an attorney. I cannot speak highly enough of him. He had my best interest in mind during every step in representing me. He managed to keep me grounded even during my most difficult times. He did an excellent job at making sure I remained informed. Steve is very intelligent and is able to work every angle of a case. I was able to build a great relationship with Steve and he had my full trust. Thank you for everything!

  • “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 have been meaning to write this review for a couple months; however I keep forgetting. That is a side effect of my accident but here I am now. I absolutely cannot praise Tom Gravina and this law firm enough. Over the years I have had attornies for different needs in my life but never as fantastic as my experience with Tom and his paralegal Franci. They have worked on my behalf and at every single turn have kept me informed by email, mail and phone. It all began in June when my fiance accidently dialed the wrong number, an appointment was set up for them to come to me when I was released from the hospital. To my amazement Tom and Franci showed up, not some associate but an actual partner and his paralegal. Wow….seriously. I could tell from the first meeting that Tom truly cared about my case and me. At no time did I ever sit wondering “what is happening with my case” Every event was communicated to me immediately…simply outstanding. My case is not yet finished but I write this now because I believe people should know how outstanding this law firm is. Thank you Tom and Franci for genuinely making a major, major difference in my life!!!”

  • Top Lawyers in Pittsburgh

    Steve is one of the top lawyers in Pittsburgh. His grasp of the law, knowledge and experience are second to none. I retained Steve a couple of months ago and it’s been an absolute blessing. Steve, I can’t thank you enough. You helped save my son’s life and brought to light many things that assisted in getting the DA’s Office to drop 5 felonies!
