Hi Tom and Franci

I just wanted to drop you a little note to thank both of you for making a very difficult

Also, I feel I have made two new friends. Again thanks for everything !

 

Sincerely, BB

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.”

Firearms Trial

“Mr. Townsend was a very knowledgeable Attorney that helped me with my Firearms Case. I was facing potential jail time for having a loaded firearm without a Concealed Permit. The judge heard the facts of the case , and I was found not guilty. I’m a business owner , and very much involved in the community, a guilty verdict would have been devastating to me & my family. I can’t thank Mr. Townsend enough for all his help & knowledge.”

Help with a Criminal Matter

“Steve Townsend was an outstanding attorney, who saved my career after I was charged in a criminal matter. He is knowledgeable of the law. He is extremely thorough in his preparation. He was impressive during trial. He appeared confident, yet relaxed. He picked apart the prosecution, seemingly with ease, and got me acquitted of all charges.
He was 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.”

Excellent Attorney

“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.”

“Resolved my problem professionally and quickly. Definitely recommend.”

“Steve Townsend did a great job in obtaining a very favorable resolution for a family member that was facing a potentially very bad situation. My family is extremely grateful for this firm’s work. I give them my full endorsement and recommendation.”

Brett Logan

“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!!!”

“Steve Townsend was easy to work with and very professional. He handled the court proceedings with expertise and got quick results. Even though I was certain of my innocence, I was nervous because you just never know how crazy and out of control things can turn nowadays. Thanks to him justice was served and now I can get back to a normal life.”

“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.”

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.

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!!”

“Very professional, intelligent, and a superb understanding of the law. I hope I do not need representation again but if I do I will be using Mr. Townsend.”

Ken J.

“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.”

Low Speed Impact Rear-End Collision

“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.”

“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.”

N.D.

“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 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.”

A.W.

“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.”

“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!”
