  • Henry Scott Shapiro

    Steven Shumer is as genuine of an attorney as they come. He goes above and beyond in ALL matters. He has spoken with clients I have sent to him, ones he cannot assist, but takes the time to listen and point them in the right direction. He listens to his colleagues and gives excellent career advice and legal advice. He is genuine, friendly, intelligent and most importantly, personable. He will never ignore a phone call. In the field of law he practices, dealing with divorcing spouses is not always a walk in the park. His persona makes a difficult process as "pleasant" as it can be. While I have never seen Steve in a bankruptcy context, if his work in bankruptcy parallels his work in divorce and family matters, then he is a top notch bankruptcy attorney as well. No questions asked, should the unpleasant topic of divorce arise, Steve is the attorney you want holding your hand during the process. He is worthy of this endorsement without question.

    I highly recommend Steven Shumer to all my clients. Steve is not only an expert in his area of practice, but has an ability to relay complex and difficult ideas in a manner that is easy to comprehend and understand. This versatility is uncommon in the legal profession and separates Steven from his peers.
