I found Shawn to be likeable, easy to talk to, genuinely concerned about my situation, professional in his demeanor and reliable. I was very pleased with the results and his fee was quite reasonable. My issues revolved around traffic violations. I would highly recommend him.


Shawn is very professional, experienced, and personal. He gave me excellent advice and made all details of my case easy to understand. I thank him for all he did to turn my legal woes into a positive outcome.

Shawn Gritz is outstanding in every way. He is expert at legal counsel, excellent at explaining processes and options to those without his legal background, and is friendly and engaging to work with. These qualities are invaluable and particularly appreciated at a time when legal issues are causing stress. He is absolutely the best lawyer I have ever worked with.

I hired Patrick Hanifin to represent me in a criminal and civil filing. Patrick was highly ethical, professional, and respectful and made me feel at ease during conversations about my case. I felt throughout the process that he constantly was looking out for my best interest even when discussing fee arrangements. Patrick was an effective communicator in explaining processes to follow in a criminal and civil matter related to a neighborly dispute. He listened closely to my concerns and discussed pros and cons of potential outcomes prior to and during the civil trial. Patrick was quite prepared for trial and has a strong grasp of criminal and civil laws and exhibited a polished presence at my trial. We prevailed in court when Patrick won my civil case. I highly recommend Patrick Hanifin.

Mr. Shih was absolutely incredible in helping us with our criminal matter. He was very polite and took time to review every detail of our case with us, ensuring that we were able to understand everything that was presented. I would recommend that everyone in our area go to Mr. Shih with their own criminal issues, he is the very best !!

Words can't describe my level of appreciation and gratitude towards Mr Patrick Hanifin. He answered the call-of-duty on a last minute referral with little more than 36 hrs before the first hearing. Patrick responded with a superior level of leadership, knowledge, grace and tenacity to help deliver a huge WIN! If not for Patrick, my lifes story might have taken a drastic and unfortunate turn with lasting implications of a completely unfair and unjust nature. I would highly recommend Mr Hanifin and his team of top notch representation when it matters most, and you need the best at your side.

I'm extremely grateful to have had Henry Shih represent me in a recent legal matter that I was extremely nervous about due to obviously not wanting to go to jail lol. He was very assuring with me and informative of every detail and precaution in regards to my case, and kept in constant communication with me throughout the months until our final court date. The man is some sort of Wizard because every possible positive outcome that could have came from the situation really Happened! Handled himself with conviviality in the courtroom and really goes the extra mile for his clients. Henry Shih is the guy you want on your team if you find yourself needing help with circumstances that require a quality lawyer!!

Happy Client

Mr Shih is one of the greatest lawyers in Maryland he helped me with my case it was very hectic and nerve wrecking but at the end of the day all charges were dropped when i could have paid 3000 dollars worth of fine all charges were dropped and i paid absolutely nothing. You need a great lawyer this is the lawfirm to go with you will never go wrong thank you Mr Shih.
