Stephen helped with a case my ex wife brought to OCCS after 30 years falsely claiming I owed back child support. He was very thorough and explained everything to us on our level. His presentation in court with all of the facts and his knowledge I believe helped make a quick decision by the court in our favor.

Steve is a true professional. Steve represents his clients with integrity and is upfront and honest. Steve represented me during a separation with my wife but our goal together was to save our family and find a solution that did not include divorce. Steve believes in preserving the family and was awesome throughout our proceedings eventually earning the respect of my wife which ultimately led to saving our marriage. Steve was very empathetic during the process and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

My divorce took over two years and Stephen was there with his support, recommendations and knowledge. His ethical approach and direct manner assured and confirmed my decisions. Rather than make decisions for me, he informed me of all possible consequences and listened respectfully to my decisions. I recommend Mr. Kaufman as a fair, responsible, and competent attorney.

When I hired Stephen Jay Kaufman to be my attorney back in 2005 I knew that he is an excellent attorney but I didn't know that he is a true Mensch! Steve was fighting for my rights and was very dedicated to my case. He was very responsive to every question I had and always kept me informed. Steve really cared for the best interest of my kids and always gave me the best advise. I highly recommend using his services !

Steve helped me get through one of the most stressful (if not the most stressful) situations of my life. I have an 11 year old child of which some old custody paperwork fell through some cracks. Upon my knowledge of the mishap, I was referred to Steve through another attorney whom I have used for other legal matters. I contacted Steve immediately and he was very concerned about my situation. He Immediately scheduled me to come in the very next day. Upon arrival at the appointment, he explained what we needed to do and he got right to work on my case. Steve informed me that I had a strong case and for me not to worry. He kept me informed regularly and was extremely knowledgeable in the way family court worked and would perceive my case. Long story short, everything ended up in my favor. Steve is an excellent litigator. Opposing counsel didn't have a chance.

I needed an attorney to review an agreement having to do with my job, and discuss possible outcomes. Steve explained the meaning of technical paragraphs I didn't completely understand, including what my obligations would be, and helped me make sure I wasn't making a mistake.

I am extremely grateful to Mr. Kaufman for his guidance, support and generosity in helping me achieve the best outcome in my child custody case. Mr. Kaufman was able to see through and understand issues at many levels and offered me good advice well beyond just legal aspects of the situation. Mr. Kaufman is very hardworking, a strength I can truly appreciate. I highly recommend Attorney Kaufman and I am sure he will do an excellent job for you!!! Thank you Mr. Kaufman for the amazing job you did for me and my daughter.

Stephen Kaufman was the 10th lawyer I interviewed before hiring. My 3 children had just been wrongfully taken away from me after I had been their sole caretaker for 6 years. Steve's dedication and fighting spirit is what won us over, we knew we needed a fighter who wouldn't be afraid to face down a big law firm. We hired him on our first visit.
Getting my kids back was all I could think about...at any cost, but Steve gave me the honest and sometimes hard-to-swallow truth that there was no "fairy-tale dust" he could sprinkle on the situation...it would be a process and might not always happen the way we would hope or expect it would.
I highly recommend Steve Kaufman to anybody who is looking for an attorney that will handle their case with charisma & passion. More importantly, Steve has a gift for realistically laying out the potential outcome for different courses of action--trust me; this can save you a lot of money if you're willing to accept his insight and take on things.

My name is Randy K. Jones, I've worked with Mr. Kaufman and his his highly professional staff for nearly ten years. I've used four different Attorney's in my Family law case in Orange County, Ca. and found his honesty and level of ethics to be unmatched. As a person, I would be proud to have him as a friend, which I could not say of any other Attorney that I've met. I have nothing but great and kind words to express my thoughts and gratitude for Mr. Kaufman.
