I asked Stuart to help me with a matter relating to our home mortgage and his advice was spot on. He knows the inner workings of financial institutions having spent a number of years working in that business and was able to guide us through a messy negotiation with our lender. We appreciated his professionalism, his understanding of the law and his sense of humor as well. Thanks for being attentive to our needs.

One of the best decisions we ever made hiring Stuart Gregory Steingraber. Had MAJOR problems with Genesis Law Group handling our case last year. Stuart Gregory Steingraber walked through the whole process with us and had a court date within a month. Stuart Gregory Steingraber handled our case with the highest priority. Working late nights and weekends to get us through this difficult time. Stuart Gregory Steingraber stood by us at court and made us feel at ease because we knew he had our backs. We can't thank Stuart Gregory Steingraber enough for his hard work and dedication to helping us get a new start.

Mr. Stuart Steingraber is an outstanding attorney. He always listens with paitence and undestanding.
After carefull consideration of a legal matter Stuart always responds to a question or a concern with compassion and the most highly expertise legal advise I have ever known. To say my wife and I both trust and believe in Mr. Steingraber is an understatement. I have and will always recommend Mr. Steingraber to any familiy and friends that have or might ever need expert legal advise. If we ever have any further need for expert legal advise Mr. Stuart Steingraber would be my first and only choice.

Stuart was a great help for my wife to take care of medical bills that were inappropriately being charged to her and her mother's trust. Stuart is a marvelous person to work with and is a person that you will enjoy being with.

While Attorney Steingraber only asked the question on the site, I did call him and he was EXTREMELY HELPFUL to me. He was easy to contact, he spoke with me PERSONALLY and answered every question I had. I actually hired him to draw up necessary papers for the courts which he did on the same day. I have resolved to contact him for any future legal issues or assistance, and highly recommend him to assist anyone who is having bankruptcy issues or question.

Stewart has been eager to help us navigate a difficult and emotionally draining situation with a minimal consideration to his own self interest. His advice and guidance is a real boon to us.

I was served with a court summon by one of those low life scavengers weeks ago. I immediately called on some local attorney's offices to get advises. Most of them would ask you to make an appointment and not willing to hear your "voice" at least. Some say will call back, but never did.
So I searched the web and tried to get some quick advises from the internet. They connected me to Avvo page. I got responses from few dedicated lawyers hours later. I called few of them but they were mostly asking you to leave a message.
Mr. Steingraber's office is 400+ miles away in Southern California, that was why I did not chose to call him first, most calls I made were to Northern California.
I was so relieved when he answered" yes, this is he speaking." I told him about my problems and he answered me humbly and detailed. He started working right away.
On the next morning, he had already contacted the other lawyer's office and his clients and started studying the case. ( it's just a credit card debt civil case, don't worry I did not kill anybody).
Since than we have been sending emails and telephoning and concentrating on my case. I knew he was a busy man and he has some other cases to handle as well but he never showed you that he was too busy for you and make you feel uncomfortable. He answered all my calls personally.
Until we signed off the last email, I was the one who asked him to send me the bill, all his involvements in the last few days were concentrating on how to protect me and never thinking about how and when I am going to pay him. That's why I gave a tittle of "Fatherly Attorney".
To the readers of this review, don't take advantage out of this kind gentlemen, if you need his service you have to pay. He is kind and humble, but when he handled the case he was tough enough.

I hired Stuart to guide me through a legal matter against a previous employer and then collect on the judgment once awarded. This has been a three-year process and I have valued Stuart's services throughout the entire ordeal.
I specifically retained Stuart's services because of his experience in judgment/debt collection and was not disappointed with his knowledge on the matter. When the debtor filed bankruptcy, I was even more confident in Stuart's ability to navigate my case to a successful conclusion. In situations when time was of the essence and decisions needed to be made, I valued Stuart's advice and guidance to lead me to the best decision for my case.
Moreover, Stuart was very responsive to my inquiries; he always kept me posted on the progress of my case. If I ever sent him an email asking for an update I typically received an answer within 24 hours; however, Stuart usually beat me to the punch by providing regular detailed updates on the case's progress. Whenever something needed my attention, Stuart delivered prompts with as much advance notice as possible so that I could properly provide what he needed without the stress of a looming deadline.
Lastly, you expect your attorney to be in your corner, but I felt Stuart went above and beyond in this aspect, seeking out and defending my best interest even as the collection effort was winding down.
Although I don't anticipate finding myself again in a predicament that would require Stuart's services, should that ever be the case he is the first person I will call. I would recommend Stuart to anybody seeking resolution in a similar matter.

Stuart is very thorough and prompt in his work. We have approached him on several occasions to collect money from companies who refused to pay for work completed. He sticks with it until results are obtained.
We would recommend him to any and all who are in need of help with their business collections.

I've known Stuart for over 20 years. He has successfully helped us collect thousands of dollars from Developers that chose "NOT PAY" us after we had performed contract work. Stuart has also aided us all of our legal matters from Living Trust & Wills through Evictions with tenants of ours. Stuart has always been extremely knowledgeable and capable of completing every task we've ever asked of him, you’ll find no finer attorney!

Stuart is an excellent general attorney for small- and medium-sized business. Handles general contract issues and is an expert in collecting on delinquent accounts that need legal action.
Billing is very fair.
Highly recommend him.
