I had a contested divorce. Calder was a "yes" man to the other attorney. Basically paid him a ridiculous amount of money for him to sign documents I could sign myself. Ended up releasing him from representing me further. I was charged fees for getting him off my docket. Multiple charges in one day at $250 then $200 to $150 etc until my card rejected because there was no more money. He informed me of the charges as a "courtesy" then proceeded to tell me he is authorized to suck my personal account dry because it's written in some fine print. Horrible. Absolutely horrible. Very very little representation with the excuse of I can't afford what I'm asking. Spent approx $6500 and would have been better off representing myself. Run...Run away
Stephen Calder is a DAMN fine attorney. He has been my family lawyer for 14 yrs now. I have always taken great comfort in having him as my lawyer. He has the perfect balance of compassion for you and the issues you face, and distaste for the opposition. You will never question who's side he's on!
He pulls no punches. He speaks in plain simple English, gets to know you and your case, and tells you what the game plan is, and the expected outcome. He is very responsive and keeps you well informed of what is going on, and what he is doing/filing on your behalf.
If it is excellence in Family Law that you seek, honestly look no further, you have found the right man!
I have recommended him to many of my family and friends, and will continue to do so till the day he stops practicing law. Which I hope is never for people who want and NEED lawyers like him.
Stephen Calder is my lawyer and has been for a little over 14 years. He has given me confidence in my search for help with my divorce, child custody and child support case. He is a great lawyer with nothing but honest intentions and success when it comes to the law and how he represents you to and for the courts. As a person I consider him a great ali and a very easy person to talk with. He will tell it like it is. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. I have to my friends and family. He works hard and will present the end result with great success.
