About Me

       CONVENIENCE AND COMMUNICATION


 


       You may contact Steve any time (at s.zlochiver@verizon.net or 339-970-1984).  If he is not immediately available when you communicate, he will respond to you on the same day.


 


       Steve offers a free 30 minute consultation on the phone or in person. He understands that people are worried and stressed when dealing with difficult family situations and he wants you to know that there will be no pressure or expectations imposed upon anyone who calls for a consultation.


 


       FEES


 


       We believe that our fees are among the most reasonable that you will find. If you retain us in 2013 for your domestic relations case (such as divorce, paternity, and modification matters) you will have the option of choosing traditional Hourly Billing or a Flat (or Fixed) Fee, and we will offer a Flat (or Fixed) Fee that is 10% less than any such fee that is shown on any other Massachusetts lawyer's Web site at the time that you retain us.


 


      EXPERIENCE


 


      Steve has been practicing law in Massachusetts for more than 24 years and has concentrated his practice on domestic relations cases for more than 22 years. Experience helps when you are looking for quality services, as well as reasonable and controlled costs. We strive to give you the best value.

  • Michael L Rich

    I highly endorse Attorney Steven Zlochiver. I have had the pleasure of working with him on and off since 2006, when I was first told he was a "go to" guy for questions about domestic relations discovery. I then had the opportunity to supervise him, consult with him and for him and hire him on various aspects of several different cases. Atty. Zlochiver has an excellent understanding of domestic relations law and is a zealous advocate for his clients' positions. He tirelessly and thoroughly investigates, researches and litigates his cases. And he is honest and compassionate besides, not a divorce law shark.

  • Steven R. Ballard

    I highly endorse Steve Zlochiver and he is one of a handful of family law attorneys I am quick to refer friends and potential clients I am unable to represent myself. That is because I have seen the consistently high quality of his work, both as opposing counsel years ago, and more recently as an attorney who worked together with me on a matter. Anyone facing a family law problem would be wise to consult with him and engage his services.
