I took on Mr. Shnider’s services when a very unexpected event put me at legal risk while commuting during a normal Sunday outing. The authorities involved did not properly note the happenings of the event leaving me extremely worried for my story and record.
I brought the case to Mr. Shnider with a few goals and truths that he immediately was able to help me feel a sense of confidence and security with. He quickly outlined what we should do and expect- and was able to take my information and investigate into the matter with the exact authorities involved.

As a law-abiding citizen, I had never imagined I would’ve had anything to do with the law until I was falsely accused of something I had never done. Feeling both confident and ignorant, I thought it would go away on its own and therefore didn’t seek legal help. I was wrong. The situation got worse and the next thing I knew was a very serious criminal charge on me. Overnight, my life was turned upside down and my entire family was in peril. I was scared, confused and very emotional. Luckily, I found Mr. Shnider’s firm through a friend. My first impression was that he was very professional and experienced, and his team was available 24/7 to provide legal assistance. This is very important because when you are in such a situation, the least thing you want to happen is that you can’t get a hold of your legal team at a very critical moment. It would remove much of the nervousness and emotion out of the equation and allow you to focus on fighting for your life. Mr. Shnider quickly assembled a team of very dedicated and experienced legal professionals so focused on delivering the best results me. I knew I was in good hands. He reviewed the case, conducted his investigation, and came up with a strategy. He clearly communicated with me throughout the process, educated me, answered any questions that I had, and kept me calm at all times. He gave me hope but never set the wrong expectations. Speaking with him, I felt like not only was he my legal counsel but also, he was my psychologist. I was so well prepared for the legal battle. His professionalism, expertise, dedication and hard work all led to the case being dismissed by the DA. Thank you so much, Mr. Shnider! You are the best.

We were fortunate to work with Mr. Aaron Shnider on my husband’s case. The case was finally dismissed without trial. I knew that I made a right decision to have Mr. Shnider as my husband’s attorney. From the very first day when I spoke with Mr. Shnider on the phone through the entire process, he always showed me and my family his great kindness, comfort, and support with his warm heart. Mr. Shnider is the most talented and brightest criminal defense attorney with many years of great experiences and proven records. He had a very strong background as a prosecutor, a public defender and a private criminal defense attorney. I completely trusted him because I knew he would do everything he could to fight for us. He diligently worked on my husband’s case and thoroughly explained to make sure we understood what was going to happen in every phase of the case. Also, Mr. Shnider set a right and realistic expectation for each step we took. One thing I really appreciated was that we were able to reach out to Mr. Shnider via email or phone call anytime we need regardless it’s after business hours or at weekend. Mr. Shnider was super responsive and patient, he always communicated well with us to address our concerns and questions. I was truly grateful for Mr. Shnider’ s dedication and expertise which helped us get out of a horrible crisis and gain back freedom, reputation and peace in our life. He deeply cared about well-beings of each family member and always reminded us of how to protect our own family in every day. No word could exactly describe my emotions and feelings while I was writing this review. It was a mixed feeling of appreciation and relief for all the hard work that Mr. Shnider dedicated for us. I wanted to say again THANK YOU SO MUCH.
