    Abysmal

    I could write well more than 4000 characters on why I would discourage anybody from hiring Steven Cole to represent them in a divorce case.
    His rates may be lower than a lot of lawyers in Phoenix but don't let this be the deciding factor. Cheap rates equals cheap service.
    In summary Steven Cole is disorganized, lacks compassion, and is an extremely poor communicator. For a solo practice he uses his paralegal way too much for direct client communication. I spent a lot of wasted time trying to figure out what was actually going on with my case. Only 30% of my direct email to his Hotmail account were ever answered. There were a lot of charges that were billed for conversations between he and his paralegal. His plan of attack or defense was never clear to me and it seemed to change frequently. He joked around with opposing counsel in court which I thought was very unprofessional.
    Save yourself a lot of potential frustration and look elsewhere.

    Not too aggressive

    Doesn't really go the extra mile for the client. Mostly just tries to go along with the opposing attorney. I had to do almost all the negotiations myself, he was of little help.

    An attorney with results!

    Steven Cole was very knowledgable and experience with my case and now have my child 50% of the time, reduced my child support and got spousal maintenance dropped. Also have a very strong, experience, and knowledgeable paralegal "Jo" and Attorney Kelly. The right combination for great results!!!

    He handled my custody case with care

    I'm extremely happy in the way Steve and his staff handled my custody case. He was very attentive to my needs and I can't thank him enough. Although it was a difficult process, I always felt as if the staff and him had my best interest in mind. Besides that his pricing was better than most that I was quoted by other lawyers, so good job on that one too.

    Mr. Cole was the attorney I needed in my child custody

    Mr. Cole was the third and last attorney I needed in my child custody and support disaster caused by the attorneys before him. After wasting so much money, he was my last hope and didn't disappoint me. He successfully worked with the 2 weeks remaining to give me justice!! He is the best and I’m confident you will get justice if you find yourself in a similar situation like I was.

    Could not have asked for a better attorney

    I needed a great family attorney. What I got was the best family attorney in Phoenix. He understood my problem and went right to work with a solution. In a really tough time, Mr Cole put me at ease, that he not only had the best interest of my child at heart, but mine as well.

    Excellent really!

    Well, I was in a very tough spot and got very good advice throughout ... the office was very responsive also ... very reasonable indeed ... I'd call them, let them know what you are dealing with ...

    I have been using Steve for 3 years now and his Firm is Great

    Steve's office has helped me with my divorice and custody 3 years ago and now I am currently dealing with more custody and Child support. His firm has helped me with all my needs and made sure they have advised me on my rights as a parent and what the best choices are for me and my daughter. I have recommended him to people who I work with and friends. Great Firm, great attorney.

    Unprepared for court appearance

    Mr. Cole did an expremely poor job of preparing for first court appearance and notified us the evening before the second appearance (after agreeing to waive his fees for the second appearance due to his unsatisfactory perfomance the first time around) that he had an emergency and would not be in court the next day. He sent another attorney in his place. This attorney was admonished by the judge for the lack of Mr. Cole's ability to share documents with the other attorneys. We were led to believe that this case would be fairly simple and should not exceed a certain price point. We clearly stated ahead of time what our financial abilities were. He then filed with the court to dismiss us because our balance of approximately $800 (after already giving $5000) was not paid within 30 days. The case paperwork forwarded to us after this dismissal were nothing but boiler plate documents filled with misspelled names and incorrect dates, including birthdates.

    Aggressive, Up Front & Honest, Caring

    Steven has superior knowledge with the legal processes, judges, courts and other lawyers. His firm truly cares about their clients, children and all those affected. He studies, prepares and reads his opponents like no other and can change strategies with ease. We have used his services on and off since 2006. Last summer my child was abducted by her mother who was unhappy with the latest court ruling. His firm was crucial in finding, securing sole custody and preventing re-abduction. My family is forever indebted to Steven Cole and his wonderful staff.
