    I endorse this lawyer. Steven is one of the few bankruptcy attorneys specializing in helping distressed homeowners facing foreclosure and related debt problems from the real estate mortgage crises. His cool demeanor and friendly attitude, coupled with his extensive experience in Bankruptcy law, is what sets him apart from other attorneys in his field. It is a pleasure to know him and I recommend bankruptcy clients to seek his professional advice and legal services.
