  • "Steve has been our family attorney for over 15 years. Over the years Steve has been there to help us with our estate planning needs. Every time I would leave on a vacation without the kids I would have panic attacks about not having my estate in order. We have a special needs son so that added to my anxiety. Steve helped us plan for our future with how to structure our estate to best meet the needs of our family. Now I can go on vacation and leave at least that worry behind. A few months before our son turned 18 we had to petition the court to become our son's legal guardian. Steve was there to make sure everything was in order. It was a smooth process. I would highly recommend Steve and his associated to take care of your Family Law needs!!"  -Teri T., 5.0 rating ★★★★★
