Stephen Padula worked on my homeowner's association dispute for 2 years and we won the mediation successfully. Stephen is a patient and honest lawyer who worked with us and gave us our best options upfront. We understood what are choices were and the cost assocaited with these choices. He saved me money where he could which helped us stand firm with our decision to move forward with the dispute. He was informative and kept us up to date with where we were with the case. His staff is also very responsive and easy to work with. If you are someone who is not familiar with how the legal system works he is a great lawyer to work with.
We have used Stephen Padula for a variety of legal services in the course of running a growing business in Florida. He has competently and expeditiously handled all of our legal matters including Contracts/Agreements and collection procedures including liens/foreclosure/small claims actions. His fees are fair and reasonable. He is highly skilled, a pleasure to work with, and a true gentleman.
Mr.Padula is very professional and caring,going the extra mile for his clients.
I was very pleased to have had him handle my case.
Steve handled my employment case with outstanding professionalism, honesty, and integrity. Steve is a first class attorney who provides in depth legal savy from both sides of the table. Being a former US Attorney and during his tenure @ Gelch, taylor,Hodkin, Kopelwitz, & Ostrow, P.A. in Ft. Lauderdale, FL has earned him much knowledge and respect not normally found amoungst his peers. I have worked with numerous attorney's in the past for a variety of legal issues and Steve is top notch.
Stephen is very trust-worthy and honest. He looks to protect the good guy and expose the evil that people wrongfully do. He is on top of everything and always keeps me informed as to what is going on and why it is going on. Not only is honest and excellent, he truly is a professional in every aspect of the word. He is also quite reasonable and worth every penny. If you have legal trouble, and are sick of the shister lawyers that are prevelent today, call Stephen Padula for all of your legal problems and questions. It'll be the best legal decision you can ever make.!!!

Mr. Padula is a fantasic representation for the legal system. He genuinely cares about his clients, and will do whatever it takes. My husband and I along with my father have used him for several different cases and business transactions. I feel he did a fantasic job for us and we highly recommend him for your legal needs.
Mr Padula very aptly handled a complicated real estate deal for me involving the sale of an office/warehouse that had a tenant who had defaulted on my lease/purchase agreement while at the same time was in an illegal contract with a purchaser. Mr Padula was able to break down this deal to simple terms and negotiated a very favorable resolution for me through the attorney of my tenant's buyer that kept intact my original lease/purchase agreement that retained all the obligations due me. He was all of the ratings I gave him here and more. He gave me great comfort as this deal was always teatering on the edge.
Excellent attorney. Honest and hard working.
