I used Steve for a child custody case. To put it short, my ex wife was attempting to alter our time sharing schedule and my contribution towards his child support. My ex was attempting to do this by making erroneous accusations.
I went to Steve in a panic mode. Steve in a blunt fashion explained my options in the case. Steve gave me time to dictate my position.
Steve took his time the day before our court date to review the facts. Everything went well in court.
Actually, later on everything went so smooth that I ended up getting exactly what I wanted as far as time sharing with my son. Things went even further when Steve was able to reverse my child custody payments to nothing! In fact, my ex owed me child support!
Steve gave me his cellular phone number which made him available whenever I needed him. He made it a point to keep me informed about my case and he would even let me know when he was going on vacation.
I appreciate Steve because he wouldn't feed me B.S. that I wanted to hear. He wouldn't allow me to waste my time and money pursuing things that he knew wouldn't work in court.
Thanks Steve (and company).
At the time of my divorce l was a father who faced losing my kids,house,and future financial security...none of that happened though.lnstead Steven simply won for me -and on every issue! I simply could recommend an attorney more.
Attorney Steven Kaufman and his team strived to provide my case with excellent service and achieve the best possible results. I could not be happier.
Mr. Kaufman handled my divorce back in 2008. I was very pleased with his representation. So much so that I recommended him to my niece. Steven takes the time to thoroughly explain and guide you through the process. He's very professional, knowledgable, and genuine.
Thank you again.
Mr. Kaufman was great. My divorce was smooth and had the intentions of the child in hand. It is nice to know you can go to someone during a difficult time and still walk out with a good experience. My ex-husband and I have a great relationship and our daughter is in a great place.
Thank you for keeping it human Mr.KAufman!!!
I hired Mr. kaufman a few years ago for my divorce and custody battle. The office staff is amazing they were flexible with my schedule and gave me payment options. Thank you so much! I have already recommended my attorney to several people that have asked me if i know a good attorney, of course i tell them that I know an amazing and professional attorney. If anyone needs an attorney you must hire Mr.Kaufman!! :)
Steven is everything you want in an attorney. He is very trustworthy, knowlegable. confident and tells it like it is. Having an attorney like this will make you feel very comfortable while he is in the drivers seat. My wife and I have used him in both of our separation cases involving children. He always keeps the best interest in mind for his clients and will fight for what's right. I highly recommend him.
Mr. Kaufman handled my recent divorce case, needless to say initially the process was a nightmare and extremely stressful. However, after sitting down with Mr. Kaufman and retaining him in my case things began to get better exponentially. He provided me with the information I was looking for and armed me with the tools to get the best possible outcome in my case. He was honest, sometimes he didn't give me the answers I WANTED to hear but instead the answers I NEEDED to hear. He spoke confidently and eloquently during all hearing and having practiced many years in the state of Florida has built a relationship of professional respect between himself and many mediators/judges. Many times during my case was he praised for the quality of his legal council. I highly recommend Mr. Kaufman in both matters of domestic violence and divorce. Be prepared to hear the truth, be prepared to have information you thought was pertinent thrown in the trash, and be prepared to make compromise in your case. I received a marital agreement of 50/50 unprejudiced custody with minimal child support due to disparity in pay and no alimony. In closing I'd also like to add he treated my ex wife with respect and made the situation run much more smoothly, he also was non confrontational with opposing council and ended up coming together to reach the final agreement during mediation. Thanks again Steven!
Before Steven I interviewed a couple of other lawyers and no one gave me a clear and direct answer to my problem until I found Steven he was very helpful and he was able to solved a very intricate situation in no time. Very responsive, knowledgeable and trustworthy.
Thank you Steve for your help! I am happy we could fix this problem right on time.
Mr. Kaufman was prepared for my case, WHEN WE WENT TO THE HEARING, and he gave it all his energy in the court room’s “BATTLE” to get the truth out, and get A WIN- WIN judgment, not A WIN- LOSE. But, the judge chose to reschedule my case for a SECOND TIME. The FIRST TIME continuation was requested by petitioner’s attorney, and granted by the same judge. Mr. Kaufman made a motion to dismiss, but, the judge denied it. Consequently, my son and I continue to suffer continuation’s consequences. I still have faith that Mr. Kaufman will have justice served sooner than later.; I will let you know. I recommend Mr. Kaufman to anyone who is looking for a just attorney.
