  • Dismissed

    “I would extremely recommend Steven Townsend.  I was placed into a criminal matter which should never occurred.  His expert cross examination elicited the correct response.  The case was dismissed.  Don’t hesitate to hire him for his professional, courteous, and outstanding manner and handling of your case.”

  • “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.”

  • “I was so nervous when I had to call Steven Townsend about a case I needed to be represented with an attorney. He has such a great way of explaining the law and making you feel comfortable that after talking to him I knew he would be the best attorney to represent me in my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.”

  • “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.”
