Mr. Fromm took the time to answer various complex questions regarding formation of a corporate structure and questions regarding estate planning. I highly recommend him equally for his professionalism, expertise and politeness. He listened carefully and did not rush me or brush off my questions. I would definitely recommend Mr. Fromm to anyone seeking advice in his areas of expertise.

I had a big problem trying to protect assets of my mothers Will after she passed away. Steve took the time to talk to me . He was very knowledgeable and showed a great deal of compassion and understanding. I only wish I would have found him a year earlier .He could have avoided alot of anxiety and loss of property. He was so easy to talk to and so down to earth. I highly recommend him for any estate and tax planning.

I am very grateful for the top notch assistance I received from Attorney Steven J. Fromm in understanding a business tax issue I have with the City of Philadelphia. He is professional, straightforward and very knowledgeable. Using the information and advice he provided, I was able to make an informed decision on how to proceed with this matter. I highly recommend him!

Fromm was in addition to estate planning involved in a very messy probate case; he was the one who summarized the probate case as:
"Your brother-in-law has defrauded you."
Once I saw that -- brotherinlaw defraud--I knew Fromm saw something other counsels had not seen. I am extremely grateful for that. I highly recommend him.

Mr Fromm kindly listened patiently to my question, and then very clearly set out the obstacles that I would face in trying to rectify the situation. Unfortunately, he also had to advise me that he was not in the proper venue to handle my case,

I came across Avvo in my desperate search for information, advice and attempts to find a lawyer. I posted my question with no expectations, ready to hear repeated advice. Mr. Fromm not only answered my question, he provided additional advice that proved very useful. I feel he went above and beyond with his knowledge and committment to assist. His response time and follow up amazed me. I live in another state from where I need a lawyer in a probate "disaster". I've worked on this situation for months and still have a long road ahead. So many questions to ask and decisions I have to make still. This man not only provided free information, he renewed my hope and faith that I will find a lawyer that I will be able to give the same rating I gave him. Hiring a lawyer would be a simple choice if he were licensed in the state I need him in. Mr. Fromm, it's obvious to me that you care and take great pride in your profession. You are an example of what ALL lawyers should strive to be. Again, many Thanks to you and God Bless You and yours.

I went online and found a site called Avvo that had alot of information about elder abuse. I had some questions about POA rights when the person that assigned them is still alive but in a nursing home therefore having no knowledge about how their finances are being handled. Within just a few hours Mr.Fromm emailed some advice and also did a followup a few days later. I really appreciated that he took time (and at no charge) to help a stranger (me) to help an elderly person.

My wife and I talked to Steven J. Fromm on the phone and he is very knowledgeable. We feel confident that he will give us the correct advice in a very trying and confusing time for us. We have had bad advice in the past from other lawyers and are grateful to be able to count on Stephen's counsel in our present and future legal matters.

With the topic and cross state limitations to my question. He responded the best he could given the distance and limited given information. His answers were relative to what I asked, and even broader than expected. If I were within the state of PA, I would gladly consider him to be an Attorney of Choice.

I have asked a couple of questions on AVVO. Both times Mr. Fromm was very quick to respond and give me good information. He also responded to an e-mail I sent directly to him. I am amazed because the dealings I have had with lawyers do not compare to what I have received from Mr. Fromm! I believe he really wants to help people with their legal matters. I think anyone who retains his services will be so glad they made that choice. Thank you, Mr. Fromm, for your help.

Steven is well rounded and was able to provide me with free consultation. The information I received allowed me to take immediate action in my case.

My mother passed away and I needed help with highly dishonest family members. Steve Fromm was an encyclopedia of information for me. Not only were his responses such a help, but the speed at which he responded to my request for help was more than impressive.
I feel that Avvo is most fortunate to have Mr. Fromm as part of their team and anyone who is in need of legal services would do well to contact him. I'm very appreciative and I thank you Steve for a job well done.

Im creating an estate for my father without the help of legal representation. I found Steve on here and he answered my questions in a very short time!
Posted by a Trusts client, Flag
I have been having issues with my brother and his wife second guessing me on handling paying for the maintenance of my father's home, which is in an irrevocable trust. I had to pay for tree and shrub removal using money from the trust checking, and my brother acted as if I had done something wrong, so I asked about this. Thankyou, Mr. Fromm. I will consult with my father's trust lawyer, however, your response gave me some peace of mind tonight. God bless you!

I asked a question on this site and honestly, I didnt expect a response. Mr. Fromm not only responded to my question very quickly but he also gave me excellent advice

I was very desperate and needed help fast with a situation I was having. I was laid off of work and needed to get my inheritance and did not know where to turn. He helped me and answered me by the next day on what I needed to do. I emailed him and he even emailed me straight away. So he is very responsive. If I lived in his area I would have hired him to take care of my situation.

I was troubled because after my Dad passed I was informed the executor(my brother) was not doing as the will indicated. The estate was suppose to be split 3 ways and my brother was very selfish in trying to get it all. Mr. Fromm answered my question the vey next day. I was surprised how fast his response came. I had an answer and feel much more confident in dealing w/ my brother and knew what to do if I'm cheated out of the proceeds. I received my help through the computer web site Avv0.

I emailed Mr. Fromm with specific information I was having with a contract dispute, although I had recently moved away from PA. Mr. Fromm took the time to personally email me back to tell me he was sorry that he could not help me with this particular matter since I was now out of state, and kindly (and without seeking compensation) made some very helpful suggestions for me to move forward with my contract issue. When I DO move back to PA, I will certainly be in touch with Steve. A very kind, professional and trustworthy gentleman.

My wife and I found Steve Fromm 10 years ago via a contact at Charles Schwab, Philadelphia. He has been a source of comfort and a fountain of knowledge ever since. In tax-related matters and as Trustee of our Irrevocable Trust, he has been there for us. Since my wife has passed away (New Year's Day, 2010), his advice has been invaluable to me. I'd not look any further for someone to trust.

After several futile attempts at overall estate and financial plannnig with other attornies, I sought a recommendation from a trusted financial intermediary. Steve Fromm had provided outstanding client service to a mutual client of theirs, and this mutual client had similiar needs.
I wanted someone to review everything that had been for (or is it TO) me by previous counsel. This included my will, a Family Limited Partnership, several Trusts, beneficiary designations, custodianships, a pre-nup, various "Powers", etc..
In addition, and MOST important to me, was a tool (or model) which would readily depict the outcomes of my choices regarding my estate in a QUANTITATIVE fashion, that is translate those lenghty legal documents for words to numbers! Personally I have nothing against words, but numbers move me....
Needless to say, I was delighted when Steve reponded to that request, within a day or so, with a "strawman" of a model which instantly caught my attention. We filled in and polished up some account values, asset list etc, and voila, there it was, a spreadsheet document that served as the "guide" for all other subsequent work includiing the will, pre-nup, trusts and the like. This same request ahd been made of several other attornies with whom I worked in the past, and it was either ignored, blown off, or messed up in some way.
Steve worked diligently with me to get a clear understanding of my wishes, which include at least a few unusal nuances. His interpretation of my sometimes vague answers was wonderful. Generally within a few hours, and certainly within a day,a new or revised document would show up ready for review.
His diligence forced me to be a better client! Historically I have gotten bogged down on thorny issues, torturing myself to coome up with the perfect answer. More than a few of these "thorny" items came up over the course of our engagement. I'm picturing a bewildered Steve on the other end ot the phone, as I yammered my way through some answer that was far more difficult than the question warranted. Steve was patient and would reel me back in, than offer either on the spot or by follow up e-mail a sensible explanation of a variety of possible answers.
I am absolutely delighted with the outcome. Last Thursday we reviewed and completed and signed all of the important documents, For the first time EVER I feel that my estate matters are properly attended to, and I take great comfort in that!
Its so true....you get what you pay for.!
