    • I recommend Steven Zelinger.
    • I hired Steven 1-3 years ago.
    • Steven handled my Appeals matter.

    For the past year of my life, I was exsisting and not living due to a tax issue that needed to be address leading to possibly losing my home. My excellent lawyer Steven Zelinger, made no promises to the results of my case but what he did do was reassure me that he would give his all towards me keeping my home and also resolve my tax issues. Steve worked very deligently and very hard to get the results I was looking for, he never sugar coated anything and kept me informed about all that was going on each step of the way. As a result to his hard work and dedication I can live again and want to thank you once again.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I was very happy to help this client who has very serious income tax issues. While she still has a lot to deal with she now has the chance to start fresh and do the right things in the future. This case taught me that the government has wonderful people working for it, but also very terrible people. Citizens needs lawyers to protect their rights and due process.

    Steve was referred to us by a friend of ours. His availability to travel to our house for the initial information session and to confirm specifics was appreciated. Prior to the final signing meeting Steve was available for a 40 min telephone call to review some technical questions. Overall...outstanding job. We are looking forward to working with Steve when we need to alter our estate/trust/guardianship plans as life progresses.

    Steve helped us plan as if he was planning for his his own child. His knowledge of estate planning was phenomenal. We were very comfortable working with him, and trusting him with our future. He helped to make the legal jargon accessible by explaining things in different terms.

    • I recommend Steven Zelinger.
    • I hired Steven more than 3 years ago.
    • Steven handled my Wills / Living Wills matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    He charges a flat fee which was VERY reasonable, guided us through the entire process, beginning with a free phone call to discuss before we even decided if we were going to go with him - it took maybe 90 minutes! - to him coming to our home at night after our kids were in bed to hammer out details. We got a living trust, a living will/health care proxies, a Kid Protection Plan stipulating both short-term and long-term guardians. When we bought a new house, I just sent him an email to ask some details about the living trust, and he got back to me right away. He'll also check in with us every 3 years to see if anything has changed.

    Best money I ever spent.
