The Best Criminal and DUI Defense LAWYER

Proudly Serving Baltimore County, Maryland

Towson | Essex | Catonsville



The Law Office of Stephen P. Shepard, LLC makes premier criminal and DUI/DWI defense both available and affordable to folks throughout Baltimore County, Maryland and surrounding areas.  Top criminal defense attorney Stephen P. Shepard’s extensive experience in handling cases from a traffic ticket to homicide, his dedication to aggressively defending the rights of those accused, and his underlying sense of true compassion towards the people he represents are what set him apart from other attorneys and make him what many consider to be one of the best criminal defense lawyers in Baltimore County.

Stephen founded his forward-thinking criminal defense firm on the following idea:

Premier representation should not be considered a luxury in this great country reserved only for the elite or the super-rich of society – it should be available and affordable to everyone. In other words, it should be a fundamental right. The sole mission of this law firm is to provide the good people of the State of Maryland with that fundamental right.

- Stephen P. Shepard

That idea stemmed from Stephen’s personal opinion that the public defender system in the State of Maryland and throughout the United States is broken and has become far too comfortable with the status quo.  Yet Stephen has also been critical of the private bar, believing that it overly focuses on profiting off good people who find themselves in bad situations.  And so, The Law Office of Stephen P. Shepard, LLC was created to serve as a model for both private and public legal representation and be one of the best criminal defense law firms in Baltimore County.

Although I don't have an ongoing case, we have a need to appoint a legal firm for all of our cases, due diligence and potential cases of our global organization. The work thus far and continuing is not only exemplary, but the depth of knowledge of my colleague is phenomenal and has brought us legal expertise that is badly needed on an ongoing basis. It is rare to find a firm willing to go the extra mile and that's what we found with SPS Law Office.

We sat down w him he had an awesome-to the point introduction.. He worked consistently with me, the wife of the client. He answered every little petty question I could possibly think of. Stephen is one the most professional lawyers I have EVER dealt with!!! From the time I met him the feeling of peace got greater! The charges brought against my husband were serious! Steve worked amazingly and we received an awesome outcome!!! I highly recommend Stephen P Shepard as the peace he brought my new family and I is remarkable!!!

Stephen is a no nonsense forward thinker. And if things don't go exactly how he wants, he's going to continue to do whatever he can to make things right. In my case, out of his own pocket and time. I definitely avoided jail time by having him in my corner and that's not enough for him. He's a true peoples lawyer.

I hired Mr. Shepard to help me with a couple traffic violations I got. One of them being driving on a suspended and another being driving on a permit without someone else being in the car, along with some others. Mr Shepard and I met and discussed my case, gave me a fair rate, and let me know everything he was doing for me involving the case. I received every update threw email. He never left me out of the loop. A few days before court he told me he had made a deal with the proscutor to have no points and just pay the payable fine for driving on my permit. That was cool with me. We get to court and long story short, I didn't have to pay anything but court costs. Everything was thrown out. On top of all that, he offered to get some past charges expunged off my record for me, charging me the bare minimum. He definitely did not have to go that extra mile. Mr. Shepard was very professional, very organized, and never left me feeling like I had to check on what he was doing. I would and have recommended him to everyone I know. He is a fantastic lawyer, and if I'm ever in need again you best believe his card is in my wallet at all times.Michael J.
