    • I do not recommend Steven Genkin.
    • I hired Steven 1-3 years ago.
    • Steven handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I hired him through a reference from family friend (my family friend regretted recommending him later after I shared the details on how he harrassed me). In short, he actually represented my ex-spouse versus me.. (later I came to know from my ex-spouse's side that Genkin helped her find a lawyer who actually sat next to Genkin's office and they both joined NJ Bar on the same day). Now you can imgine what I went through......This reflects this guys character.. Few specifics: He charged me $ 15000 plus for doing absolutely nothing.....The case was moved to different courts in New Jersey by him so that he can keep charging me for all the filling and refliing costs.....My new attorney shared some details and I fired him right away else thing guy was on to something way bigger.....

    Please avoid him if you want "Pease of mind".

  2. Avoid at all costs

    • I do not recommend Steven Genkin.
    • I hired Steven more than 3 years ago.
    • Steven handled my Probate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    He misrepresented himself to have experience in the law for the matter we presented him. He is just a general practice lawyer billing as though he is a specialist. He tried to assure us by using him we would be better off and he would save us money. Nothing could have been further from the truth. He overbilled us and has not refunded our unused retainer. He even had the nerve to bill us for a period of time prior to actually hiring him. We suggest that you stay away from him to avoid the frustration and aggravation we have experienced.
