    • I do not recommend Steven Effman.
    • I hired Steven 1-3 years ago.
    • Steven handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Paid him more than 30k and failed with everything. Ended up hiring another attorney to finish my divorce. Makes false promises and backs out of everything. Take your money with unnecessary meetings and conversations after which he never follows up with the other attorney. If there were negative stars this attorney would receive them. My 5 year old could've represented me better.

  2. Do not hire this lawyer

    • I do not recommend Steven Effman.
    • I hired Steven more than 3 years ago.
    • Steven handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    He represented me in my divorce in 2009 and he was so rude and belligerent that he angered the judge and irritated everyone around him. He was overly aggressive even to me his client and it was obvious that he was just putting on a performance. He intentionally drove a wedge between me and my ex and the relationship is now far from cordial. We were friends throughout the separation until Mr. Effman came in the picture. He intentionally dragged things out to get more money even though I was more than willing to compromise and be fair.
