Steve Abel handled divorce and custody issues for me over a large stretch of years. He is patient in explaining procedure and was great in helping to cope with all the emotions that are associated with divorce and custody battles. He is a great advocate for his clients.
I used Steve for my divorce mediation as well as for my will.
Steve is regarded by most as the best matrimonial mediator in Rockland County. He guided us through a complicated mediation process quickly. He was mindful of what was fair and reasonable. He advocated for both my ex-wife and for me. He routinely reminded us that this would be difficult but that the benefits or mediation were worth the effort.
Steve communicated effectively acting as our mediator but also as a therapist to get us through the process.
I've had the opportunity to work with Steve in a matrimonial court. I observed the respect that the judge had for his opinion, experience and his sense of fairness.
Without reservation, I would recommend Steve to anybody seeking a smart and able mediator.
