Overall rating: Excellent, Trustworthy, Responsive, Knowledgeable, Kept me informed

My review of The Snyder Litigation Team is very positive. Mr. Snyder is a knowledgeable attorney who took the time to clearly review our background of information. He was not afraid of a challenge as we were informed that this was a very complicated case to defend. Over the years that our litigation has transpired we were kept up to date on significant changes that were occurring at the given time. He works closely with the client and truly follows the idealistic approach to caring and has true compassion to fight for what is right and protect the little guy. He takes himself out of the attorney position and turns the tables and places himself into the shoes of the client to really see what they have gone through. I would highly recommend Michael Snyder and his firm.

Overall rating: Excellent, Trustworthy, Responsive, 
 Kept me informed

Michael B. Snyder, his father, Stephen L. Snyder and the lawyers at Snyder & Snyder, represented me and my family with regards to the ExxonMobil Gas leak that occurred in Jacksonville, Maryland. After a year of hard work, the case went to trial, which lasted five and a half months. My case was tried with 87 other families that the law firm also represented. The Jury ruled in our favor and came back with a verdict of approximately $150,000,000. I was really pleased by the hard work of Mr. Snyder and his law firm. These lawyers really proved to me and the other families involved how talented and successful they are when it comes to high stakes litigation. Not only were they fantastic trial lawyers but they are also compassionate and caring people who provided great advice throughout this case. I am happy to call them my lawyers and I would recommend them to anyone who needs the best lawyers out there.

8. Super Job Today – L.B. 2009 Baltimore, MD

Please let Steve know that we feel he did a superb job today. We were amazed at the presentation, the clarity, the forthrightness, and the literal evidence that was displayed. The visuals were phenomenal. It is unbelievable how you all put this all together. We had to let you know how terrific Steve and the entire team were.

9. You’re the Best – T.F. 2010 Baltimore, MD

What a job. You’re the best.

10. Phenomenal – D.B.. 2010 Baltimore, MD

You are the best. You have been, as I said before, phenomenal in your research, your time, your efforts, you diligence, and all your presentations on our behalf. Your closing statements today were superb and there is really no way for me to express our most sincere thanks for all that you have undertaken. You and your team have been our only advocates.

11. Congrats and Heartfelt Thanks – M.B. 2010 Baltimore, MD

Please send my congrats and heartfelt thanks to Steve, Michael, and the entire firm for pouring your heart and soul into this case on behalf of our family and our neighbors. The last couple of days were quite emotional and I can’t thank each and every one of you enough for all you have done. God bless and thank you all.

12. True Commitment, Passion, and Caring – J.A. 2010 Baltimore, MD

I certainly appreciate the genuine concern, the commitment, and the passion of the entire law team to see this through to this point. The orchestration of all team members to stay coordinated to get to the end result on a large project in itself is a huge task. It certainly was a tremendous effort that is difficult to understand and put into words unless you share these parallels. In my world this would have been a “once in a career” project. Concluding arguments certainly touched everyone while clearly articulating like a well-orchestrated concert the inner feelings that many of us could not eloquently describe while testifying as well as what we all know is the truth in the case. Thanks again to the entire firm. The true commitment and passion and caring is what I think separates good firms from great firms regardless of their business. Your firm is certainly a great firm for taking on this overwhelming challenge, this commitment to and caring about the community. The passion and Steve’s unrelenting questioning to help us to find out what really happened and the execution of the plan which hopefully reaches a successful conclusion.

13. Outstanding Job in Trial – B.B. 2009 Baltimore, MD 

Congratulations. I think you and your team did an outstanding job in the trial. We could not have hired a better law firm.

14. Fabulous and Outstanding – B.L. 2010 Baltimore, MD

You are fabulous, did an outstanding job, and we couldn’t have been prouder of your performance.

15. Gratitude, Respect, and Admiration – D.B. 2009 Baltimore, MD 

In the arena of truth, inner wisdom is the virtue of goodwill and the life force of the whole truth. In the arena of truth, you have earned our deepest gratitude, respect, and admiration. With sincere gratitude and warmest thanks.

16. Thanks to Everyone – J.D and J.E. 2009 Baltimore, MD 

Our thanks to everyone on the team for an excellent job and great verdict.

Praise from Legal Scholars

“As an attorney in the Baltimore area who has worked closely with the Snyder Litigation Team on cases, I have always been impressed by the firm’s dedication and tenacity. Working with this firm has taught me a tremendous amount about how to achieve the best results for my own clients. The Lawyers at the Snyder Litigation Team treat each case as if it’s going to trial, yet the vast majority of their cases settle due to the firm’s reputation and proven results. The results they obtain are truly spectacular.” ~ G.P. 2012

“I have worked closely with Michael, we are in the same building, and frequently discuss our cases, the law and strategies. He is extremely knowledgeable, always accessible and very forthcoming. We also share results, and his successes are many, and the value he gets for cases virtually always is much higher than similar ones tried or settled by other attorneys. I have seen him with clients, and the rapport is unmistakable! I cannot recommend him enough!” ~ G.M. 2011

“Mr. Snyder works extremely hard on behalf of his clients. His firm has a long-standing commitment to their clients, and under his leadership, has obtained excellent results. With a unique way of working with clients, fellow lawyers, and others, Mr. Snyder consistently goes the extra step to see that his clients expectations are met I endorse this lawyer without reservation.” ~ M.S. 2011

Pre-Eminent Professor of Law said in court filing:

“[Snyder’s office] is one of the best, if not the best, law firms on the East Coast with respect to the representation of plaintiffs‚”

Federal judge says in 2000:

Snyder is “highly experienced and skilled in ‚high stakes plaintiff’s litigation.” “Snyder ‚ provided outstanding legal services‚” “litigation was imaginatively conceived, skillfully staged, thoroughly prepared, aggressively pursued, and timely and successfully resolved for the great benefit of [client].” “the results obtained were spectacular‚” “the litigation was unprecedented, and the result was extraordinary.”

Maryland state court judge in 2000:

“One can almost take judicial notice of how extremely talented – how diverse – how experienced – how brilliant – and how enormously successful they have been in big time cases before juries – in Baltimore City and anywhere else they have practiced.”

“I was struck by the immense preparation all of the Plaintiff’s attorneys had done. ‘Awesome’ is a word that has been cheapened by its constant use – but it is the one word which properly describes the preparation in this case”
