Andrew is regarded by many to be one of the top attorneys in the state. And yet, he always takes the time to actually listen to his clients' concerns and calm their fears as he guides them step-by-step through the legal process. His dedication, his relentless attitude, and his vast knowledge of the law is unsurpassed as he works diligently to create a winning defense that is unique to each case. I am so thankful we had him on our team!
This was my first and hopefully only experience where I needed a defense attorney. At a very difficult time in my life, Andrew accepted my case after I had begun my defense with a different attorney. During my initial meeting with Andrew, it was clear he was a far superior attorney to the person that had been initially recommended to me. He asked me questions and made suggestions about my defense that my previous attorney had not thought of or mentioned in several meetings. I immediately decided to hire Andrew to replace my first attorney and it was the best decision I could have made. Andrew is extremely thorough and very detail oriented in his approach and I always left his office feeling much better about my situation than when I arrived. He kept me well informed of the progress with my case and quickly responded to any questions I had. Andrew's knowledge of the law is second to none and I would not hesitate to recommend him as a first class defense attorney. Additionally, I will forever consider him a friend!
Respectful, dedicated and trustworthy. Andrew was extremely helpful in resolving a legal issue of mine, and I would highly recommend him for anyone who is looking for a criminal defense attorney. Given my unique situation (I do not reside in Ohio), Andrew understood the difficult situation I was in, and thoroughly explained the legal process and always kept me informed on the status of my case. Further, given that I reside out of state, Andrew was able to get my mandatory community service hours waived with a fee. Andrew also showed great commitment to my case by always being responsive to my outreach and providing knowledgeable and honest counsel -- even months after my court date.
My association with Andrew Stevenson has left me with a deep appreciation for attorney Stevenson and his staff. Their friendly, quick response to client and general inquiries constantly demonstrates a degree of concern, professionalism, knowledge and ability we all expect when we find it necessary to retain an attorney. His ability to successfully negotiate has eliminated many courtroom hours, while his ability as a trial lawyer wins cases. In a word: Andrew and his team are winners!
Mr. Stevenson has handled several cases for our family in the most recent months and we could not be any happier with the results in which he provided. Regardless of the actions that lead to his hire, Mr. Stevenson was able to represent both cases with the most effective results. We strongly believe that it was, without a doubt, Andrew's respected reputation and relationships with others within his profession that allowed for the fairest of terms to be provided on our behalf. This is specifically true in the latest case he handled for us, as it was not in the local courts; yet, Andrew represented our family with the same confidence as his own locality. Mr. Stevenson's office was, in every incident, the most professional in communication, often going above to satisfy our schedules and location of residence. We highly recommend Andrew for your case; not only will you receive professionalism but you will, without a doubt, experience an honest, straight forward attorney that truly has the intention to represent you(rs) with the highest level of confidence in the courts. Thank you Andrew...we are forever grateful for the work you put into our family's situations and wish you only the best.
Mr. Stevenson cared about our son as a person. He listened. He was available, responsive and kept us informed. Mr. Stevenson's knowledge of the court system and specifically our community contacts was invaluable to assisting with our defense. He believed and advocated for our young son to give him a second chance. We were fortunate to have found someone who cared as much as we did.
If you are looking for thorough, look no further than Andrew. Great defense attorney who takes his time and does the job right without gouging you in price. Very happy client!
We are very satisfied with the care and compassion Andrew showed during our time of uncertainty. We found ourselves at odds with multiple attorneys not willing to take on the case due to one reason or another. Initially we thought a public defender would be the only option, but I widened our search and came across a few videos of Mr. Stevenson at a lecture or conference I believe. This man knows his stuff, and exudes confidence. He was very open, honest, and straightforward when he explained the details of what we would be expecting with a pre-indictment case. The process was VERY long from the courts end, with multiple set backs all from the court. Andrew and his team was more than accommodating, always there to answer our calls if ever we had questions. When it all was said and done he was able to keep the case from going to trial, and no jail time was called for.
Attorney Andrew Stevenson was recommended to me from another attorney to represent me on a traffic violation. I had just obtained my paralegal degree when I was charged. I was scared my career was going to be ruined before it got started. Andrew was 100% honest and upfront with me. I was extremely impressed with him in the court room during my trial. Because of Attorney Stevenson's hard work and amazing trial skills; "I was found not guilty." I am now working as a paralegal for one of the top law enforcement agencies in Ohio. I highly recommend him.
Andrew helped us through an absolutely horrible situation. Being completely innocent of a crime but being placed through the Fairfield County proverbial legal ringer is nothing short of a nightmare. Andrew represented us well and was responsive to all of our questions and concerns in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend him for anyone who finds themselves trapped in a bad situation, especially in Fairfield County.
Andrew represented my husband and I in both a criminal and juvenile court matter. He was honest and upfront from the beginning and did a wonderful job explaining the process and his plan for us. Through the entire process, we were able to contact him through both email and phone calls. From past experiences with other lawyers, getting a return phone call or email was a rare thing so this was always a highlight for us with Andrew. He was always professional and strong in the courtroom but friendly when it was just us. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer. I have already recommended him to my friends who need a lawyer.
I have had the personal experience of being represented by Mr. Stevenson, and I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal help. He was very straightforward with me and spoke to me as a human being and not as just another case. He listened to me when no one else would and I believe he actually believed in me. He is a wonderful attorney and just a great person in my eyes.
Andrew proved that I wasn't just another client of his, and that he, indeed, cared about resolving my issue. Even though I was in a precarious - and somewhat scary - situation, I always felt assured that I was going to get the best result possible with Andrew's counsel.
Andrew removed our anxieties while our son needed legal representation when he was at school in Ohio but our family was in far-away Toronto. His courtroom experience, easy speaking style and caring manner gave us great confidence. Andrew is our choice for any future legal needs.
Mr. Stevenson is a great lawyer who knows his way around a court room. He got my case reduced to the best possible scenario and I avoided jail time and paid minimal fines. If I were ever to get in trouble again he is definitely the first call I’m making
Andrew Stevenson represented my son on a child endangerment charge. The case also involved children services, which in itself was a nightmare. From the start Mr. Stevenson was professional and upfront with a nonjudgmental attitude. The case was complicated, long and very upsetting. Throughout the whole ordeal, we found Andrew to be knowledgeable of law, easy to communicate with and considerate of our concerns. He worked with the DA and CPS in juvenile court to insure the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of legal counsel.
I found Mr. Stevenson through the Internet to represent my son who is in Denver and I'm in NJ, scary situation to begin with. Andrew made me feel relaxed from the beginning he told me of the chances of my son having to return to Ohio to appear in court but I remained hopeful. My son has come so far from that time and truly deserved a break. Andrew was able to get the case dismissed. I would like to thank the prosecutor and judge for giving my son a clean slate and helping him keep the job he just got!
Andrew was hired for our son who was facing being charged with a crime he did not commit. In panic, we called Andrew. He arranged to meet with us and our son quickly and he had the right tools there for our son to tell his side of events without wasting time. Time was of the essence and important decisions needed to be made quickly. He calmed us and gave a detailed plan of what he needed to do. Additionally, his assistant Heather, expedited calls and shared in the calming of us. Most importantly, he believed in our son and knew that he would not do what he was accused of doing. Thanks to Andrew, our son is looking forward to the future.
Extremely Pleased with attorney’s services. Mr. Stevenson was very honest in explaining the seriousness and potential outcomes of the situation in which I found myself. He developed a plan to show the extenuating circumstances in my case, and he was able to negotiate with prosecutors on my behalf and arrive at a favorable outcome for me. I have needed attorney services numerous times before, and have used at least seven different attorneys over the years. I would not hesitate to use Mr. Stevens' services again if needed.
Knowledgeable. Knew how the system was going to work and the best path to see us through. Compassionate. Understood the challenges we were going to face as a family, as well as individually, and provided the hard facts we needed to face them head on. Gets results. Pushed forward, was proactive and utilized resources that gave us results.
Excellent. Andrew Stevenson recently represented me in a legal matter. I was very satisfied with the outcome of the decision. His handling of the matter was excellent. He provided personal attention that made me feel comfortable with his representation.
Communication, negotiation and perseverance are just a few of Mr. Stevenson's qualities. He is an excellent lawyer who not only analyzes the facts of the case, but cares about his client’s future. Mr. Stevenson was our legal rock through a very difficult time for our family. His negotiation skills and communication kept us calm through a storm. This experience has given us faith in the legal system. He is a true gentleman and professional. There is no other lawyer we would consider using.
Andrew is simply one of the most remarkable attorneys I know, and I know a large number of them. He is compassionate and sympathetic, aggressive when necessary, and relentless in his dedication to achieving the best possible outcome for his clients. He saved my son's future. He is the only one I would trust to defend my freedom.
Before our first case, I asked five different local lawyers, "Who is the best defense attorney in Fairfield County?" Without hesitation, all five said Andrew Stevenson. Now, after working with Andrew on three occasions, he has guided us through the system with good results each time.
Excellent lawyer with a caring personality. We stumbled upon Andrew after my son had the misfortune of making a few bad choices. Andrew helped us understand and navigate the judicial system, the charges against my son and the possible outcomes, based upon the charges. I found Andrew’s communication to be excellent (he asked questions, he explained outcomes) and his knowledge helped to steer our case through these unfamiliar waters. In reflection, I found Andrew’s personality, legal knowledge and desire to support us to be extraordinary. If you’re looking for a Lawyer, call Andrew, you'll be happy you made the call.
I was indicted on 16 sexual battery charges. I was looking at a lot of time behind bars and my kids. I was such a hot mess throughout the whole process and Andrew was not only there as my Attorney but as a voice of reason, a calm in the storm to help answer and ease some of the unknowns the best he could. He is very pleasant and down to Earth. He’s very honest; and did he give me any false hope. He was just pragmatic on what the possibilities could be no matter how good, bad or ugly they were. Most important to me was that from the first time I walked into his door on our very first consultation, I never felt judged. He believed in me and what we were fighting for. Justice was served and all 16 charges were dismissed with prejudice. This could have completely ruined me for the rest of my life family wise and career wise. Thank you Andrew!
Andrew Stevenson was referred to me by another attorney and exceeded all my expectations. Andrew was very open and honest with me throughout the entire legal process and kept me well informed. After speaking to other offenders and hearing their situations I was even more grateful for having Andrew as my attorney. He resolved my case with what I can now say is the best possible outcome. It was very apparent that he knew the law, the court system, and the people we would be dealing with which only further helped my case. Andrew was very friendly, considerate and easy going which eased my anxiety in a less than ideal situation. I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone.

Our family is from WV but our 21-year-old son was arrested in the state of Ohio on three felony drug charges. We retained the counsel of Andrew Stevenson to defend our son against these charges and DEFEND is exactly what he did! This incident occurred in February 2015 and just a little over six months later Andrew had his case completely resolved with the court. Not only were the results favorable for our son but he was able to get two of the felonies completely dismissed. We feel that he worked very hard and negotiated with the prosecution on our son's behalf and was able to avoid having our young son become a convicted felon!!! We will be forever grateful to Andrew for that. He was always available to take our calls and answer every question we had concerning our son's case. If you are ever in need of a criminal defense attorney, Andrew Stevenson would be the right one for you!
Mr. Stevenson helped me through the toughest time in my life. He played the role of a true advocate for me in the court room. His team made me feel like family and resolved my case with the best possible outcome for my future.
Excellent lawyer, kind man. My husband and I found ourselves in need of expert advice and defense. We were upset, confused and unsure of how to proceed. Andrew responded quickly to our inquiries and helped us determine a course of action. His understanding of the legal system and how we should proceed helped calm us and give us renewed hope and focus. Without his knowledge and expertise I cannot begin to imagine what would have become of us or our case. He has our eternal thanks and gratitude for helping us to get our lives back in order. I would highly recommend him.

Instrumental in changing my life for the better!!! At a major turning point in my life, Attorney Stevenson was hired to represent me. He was well versed about the charges I was facing and the possible consequences of my actions. I had never faced a situation like this before. Mr. Stevenson was forthcoming and informative and presented all information and evidence against me very honestly. He was never judgmental or condescending about my situation or the choices I had made. He was both personable and professional in and outside of the courtroom. It was a pleasure to work with Andrew, I only wish we had met under different circumstances.
Andrew is always available to speak with you if you have any questions. He always called the day before a court date to remind us. He sent copies of everything to my house and to my sons house. My son had a piece of mail returned to Andrew's office so to make sure we didn't miss a court date he started sending them to my house also. Andrew had to drive an hour to get to our county for court and never had a problem getting there in time for court. I am extremely happy with his work.
Mr. Stevenson was professional in every way. We don’t always want to hear the facts of what could happen, but they are so much better when explained with all the options. His manner was such that you understood what could happen and what might happen. No surprises. At no time did I feel that I did not have All the representation I needed. Thank you, Sir, for your hard work.
Andrew Stevenson was a delight to work with when a family friend was in need of representation. He exhibits a calm demeanor that is infectious when dealing with a stressful situation. Andrew successfully negotiated a smart plea for this friend and kept all of the people involved informed of all aspects of the proceedings. My sincere hope is that this family friend understands the gravity of his situation and continues to do the ordered criteria for a positive final outcome. Andrew did not disappoint. Thank you, Andrew.
My family cannot thank Andrew enough for his amazing knowledge, expertise and kindness during one the the hardest times in our lives. Andrew was able to get the charges dismissed and keep our family from being separated and destroyed. Words cannot express our gratitude!
Andrew Stevenson is a top notch attorney. He helped me out of a very stressful situation where my f4 felony was lessened to an f5 and also found a diversion program to join so that it will eventually be expunged if I do the work. He was very practical the entire time, never got my hopes up and definitely did his homework talking to the prosecutors and finding the best possible deal for me. His secretary is also amazing and every time that I would call, even to verify a court date, she would check to see if he was busy just in case he had something new to tell me. We did play phone tag at times but he always called me back whenever I would miss him within a day or two. All of these services were included in my initial retainer fee. I never felt like I was alone in the entire process or had to hunt him down for information and he definitely did his side of the work for me. He also has a great sense of humor, which helped a lot in a scary situation which could have derailed my entire future. I believe I made the right decision with Andrew Stevenson, he really cares about what he does.
Attorney Stevenson took time with me and made sure all recent laws were examined before court appearances. He is very prepared and honest to work with. I am extremely pleased with my outcome. I always recommend Andrew if ever needed.
If you need help in troubled times look no further! Andrew is honest, very knowledgeable, and will absolutely fight for your legal rights. I needed help, and Andrew walked me through every step, and always kept me informed. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!
To someone who can help you out of big and small problems, Andrew saved my life. He did a wonderful job for me. He was out of state when I called him. He told me what I should do, and he saved my life. Very scary, as to what to do when you’re in deep trouble. I would have been in jail, and had to pay several thousands dollars in restitution for what I did. He is very calm, and has a strength about him that puts you at ease. In closing, he is the best.
I would highly recommend Mr. Stevenson. He helped my son with a legal matter. He was very straightforward on his objectives for resolution and fee structure. I was very pleased with the outcome of the matter.
