    • I do not recommend Stephen Tornay.
    • Stephen handled my Mediation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Tornay Accepted my case saying it was a good strong case, talkee me into going to mediation saying it was a slam dunk (wrong choice should have done arbitration).
    With in 20 min.he was telling me I could not prove my case and and convinced me into taking a awful deal.
    Horrible advice, Did not bring one PC of paper to mediation not even the complaint, the mediator had to print it out.
    I am a disabled person and I feel Steve took total advantage of me.
    Believe it or not he was recommended but when I asked for references he could not provide any.

    Choose carefully.

    • I recommend Stephen Tornay.
    • I hired Stephen 1-3 years ago.
    • Stephen handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Attorney Tornay is very knowledgeable! He has every corner covered. He shared is cell phone number with me so that I could reach him 24/7. He also has a great staff that helped me with any questions that I had along the way. I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Tornay and is ability to defend his clients. I was sorry to see that someone shared such bad information. I completely disagree!!

    • I do not recommend Stephen Tornay.
    • I hired Stephen more than 3 years ago.
    • Stephen handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Took my money, did the bare minimum, was unreachable/unresponsive for weeks, did not complete his report until i contacted the BBB and OC bar. Then the most unprofessional and backhanded thing happened: After police incidents/child endangerment and complete mental instability demonstrated by the mother he spoke with the mother in private and said "you guys can work this out" and preceded to sympathize and undermine everything i paid him for!!!!! I wish this wasn't true because i still cant believe it but he has no business to be a licensed attorney. Very disappointing!!

    This was the worst time of my life! If I did not find Mr. Tornay to fight for me I don't know what I would have done.
