“Steven did what I was certain couldn’t be done, which was to get the case dismissed despite heavy evidence against my side. He worked hard to make sure the law worked in my benefit. I’d recommend him to anyone, anytime.”


“I called and spoke with a few attorneys and none of them understood our defense better than Mr. Taxman. He was on the road and picked up my initial call to him as well as discussing the case later that day. Mr. Taxman and his paralegal met with me the following day and understood how a series of unfortunate events landed me in jail on felony charges. The next day Mr. Taxman was able to call the DA and not just once but twice to explain the circumstance of the case. He arrived to my arraignment hearing and discovered I’d not been charged. It was honestly due to his understanding my case, immediate advocacy to the matter and thoughtful attention that the DA saw that no charges should be filed. Mr. Taxman was a great advocate and well worth the money to secure professional representation. Also, my wife had gone into his office as a witness. His paralegal was able to draft a letter to the DA for me as well. A lot happened during the event in question and my wife was impressed his staff was a able to draft a letter based on content to the event as well-almost a timeline showing details and in our case a lack of evidence. Mr. Taxman has a great team who work diligently and methodically to represent you and are really on your side! To sum it all up he’s a dedicated professional and we will certainly refer him to anyone in ”

“I am a court officer who was falsely charged with a crime on the job. Steve took my case and I had now worried after that.Steve was so good that his argument even the judge Used it when she told the DA there is NO case. This is the man you want in your corner..”
