“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 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.”
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!!”
“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.”
