This is by far the best attorney in Dallas TX!! He is an attorney that actually cares about his clients and will fight for what is right! When I first met him he told me that he can probably beat my 4 FELONY cases I had pending! For some reason he seemed so confident that I went ahead and hired him as my counsel. Well sure enough he had all 4 felony’s reduced down to misdemeanors and just like that, my cases were behind me! He really cares about his clients and will shoot you straight from the get go! I will be recommending him to anybody and will always have his number memorized Incase something happens. I know he will be there for me with a single phone call!! Thank you Mr. Shoemaker for all you have done for me!!!

We interviewed many attorneys before choosing Ted Shoemaker and we made an excellent choice. He is skilled, knowledgeable, trustworthy and well respected in his field. He was always available to answer our questions and provide the information we needed. He was able to bring a positive resolution to our case and I cannot thank him enough. I highly recommend him.

Defense Attorney .He always takes care of his clients. Ted is very good at finding out the best route to take. Since the first time I met him I knew he was Defense Lawyer with Integrity and took care of his people.

Ted is amazing!!! Couldn’t have asked for anyone better by my side!!! Facing felony probation violation and murder, and now both charges dropped! He stayed in contact with me every step of the way, if I texted him he called me in 30 mins. If I called he texted saying what time he would get back to me and actually get back to me!!! Kind, smart, and has amazing connections in Dallas and even Collin county! I will forever remember the best lawyer in Dallas
Edward is a fantastic attorney and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality representation at a reasonable price!

I was facing 30 years.... and felt that my life was over...Mr. Shoemaker not only assured me a positive outcome, but made me feel comfort and that he truly cared. Not only is he smart and highly educated in the law but he is also brilliant and unlike any lawyer that I have ever met or came across in my lifetime. After a few months of not knowing what my future May be.. he informed me that my case was completely dismissed. And for that I am very grateful GRATEFUL!!! Thanks once again may God bless you Mr. Shoemaker!!!!

It actually amazed me how serious this man takes his job, I was never able to hire him as my attorney, he was actually court appointed because I was incarcerated with a felony charge that carries 2-10 years in prison but there were some truths that we're definitely going to help me out if I had to go to trial but after being incarcerated for 60 days days i was just so ready to get out, so on my 53rd day in jail i went to court and they offered me 4 years felony probation and I was ready to sign but Ted refused to give me the pen.. He told me to give him 7 more days and to just trust him but I tried to tell him that I had my own personal rights and that i wanted to get out right then and there because my birthday was in 8 more days and by handing me the pen which would seal the deal on my case so that the courts will pay him for appointing me but he still refused to give me the pen or the papers and just assured me to be patient and to trust him.. And It was shocking to me because there are so many lawyers in Dallas county jail but maybe 10 out of every 200 actually fight as hard as they can for the inmates, others just let them rot and forget about the client because the pay for inmates is not very astonishing.. But man oh my do I respect Ted's work ethic.. I trusted him and when I came back in 7 days he told me that my charges had been dismissed!! I thank God for sending me this exact lawyer because he is the true definition of an attorney and if you ever have been to Dallas county jail, or even if you magically end up there one day I guarantee that when inmates name their top 5 attorneys you always hear Mr. shoemaker mentioned because everybody knows Ted.. He always kept me informed about my court dates and other inmates that I was housed with were jealous because of how often he would come and visit just to inform me about all types if tips and information that he needed and also changes in the case such as getting me in court sooner than I was supposed too a few times but always had me in and out of court.. Every person that rates him will definitely give a 5* unless they have never personally been a client of his.. I used to think the system was crooked until he took control of the situation! Some people do what they Can and Other people do what they Want, I can only imagine how serious he will take a real customer that actually invests their trust in him!!
God bless this man..

My fiancé has been working with Ted probably about a year now and he has been the absolute best! He has been very lenient and understanding of my husbands situation he does the very best to make sure he gets the best deal Ted is truly amazing and has changed me and my fiancé life for the better! I couldn't be more happy having someone like Ted fight for my fiancé's freedom. He's definitely the best in Texas! I never seen any other lawyer like him THANK YOU SOO MUCH. God is going to bless you.
