Steve was excellent from the very beginning. He is extremely personable and takes the time to listen and understand what YOUR needs are, not his. He is very thorough and will represent you in the best way possible. He is extremely fair and honest and took the time to explain anything and everything, over the phone, in person, or over email. My divorce was horrible but Steve did everything he could for me, financially and in my best interest. The judge ruled in my favor becuase Steve and I worked together as a great team in gathering data and presenting it in the best way possible. Although my divorce has been final for over 6 months, Steve continues to help me with some of the struggles post-divorce and keeping your ex-spouse compiant with the divorce decree. I HIGHLY recommend Steve.
An additional perk, he has a wonderful paralegal, Jill! She can help in so many ways as well!!
I was involved in a horrid situation which was perplexingly complicated. I was in a short-term marriage (3-1/2yrs), with a prenuptial agreement and no kids. I was looking to save money, seeing that my divorce should have been simple. I initially attempted to go it alone without a lawyer, (Pro Se). It was a mistake because my now ex-wife was on a mission then to ruin me. After my first couple of procedural mis-steps, I was advised by the divorce referee to hire an attorney. Still trying to save money I sought a "cheap" attorney, friend of a friend kind of thing. That attorney cost me even more money and heartache. She was a poor communicator, irresponsible, and caused me to slide down the slippery slope of contempt hearings due to the combination of her proclivities and opposite counsel's malicious, covert and underhanded tactics.
I finally realized, just like when I pilot large jets, there are no shortcuts to success. After some research I found Attorney Steve Anderson. He was placed in the middle of a very tangled web. I was facing the potential of jail time due to no fault of my own. I have never been arrested, I pay my bills and am a responsible citizen. Trust me when I say that things can go south before you realize it if you don't have proper representation.
Steve immediately came to my rescue. I was starting to exhaust my financial resources and was losing time at work. As is mentioned he has a calming way about him. You know you are in good hands.
He cleaned up my mess. He turned me from being constantly on the defense and put me on the offense. The other attorney quickly decided to no longer represent my ex-wife since she could no longer use the court system to extort money from me. My ex lied about even signing a prenup. Steve found the notary and he testified at trial on my behalf. It was a slam dunk.
I am now in a very good place since it is all over. I am in his debt, metaphorically speaking forever.
I highly recommend Attorney Steve Anderson for anyone in need of a counselor.
I have hired Mr. Anderson twice to help me resolve child support issues. He is very knowledgeable and always kept me informed. In the courtroom, he is very calm and professional which, in my opinion, is the kind of attorney that judges prefer to hear cases from. I hope to not need an attorney again in the future, but if I do I would definitely hire Mr. Anderson again.
I hired Mr. Anderson to handle my divorce (with children) recently. During my initial consultation, I was immediately struck by his calm and kind demeanor which instilled in me a sense that everything was going to be all right. He has proven to be a man of integrity with extensive experience and a high level of professionalism. He has always kept my budget in mind and has attempted to keep costs down whereever possible while still striving for quick resolution (which was difficult in our case due to no fault of our own!) He and his paralegal have always been quick to respond with updates and answers to my questions/concerns. They have been great to work with and I would recommend him highly!
