Stephen worked to recover money owed to me inspite of a chptr 7 bankruptcy. His attention to detail returned me substantially more money than I would have with a lesser aggressor.
Stephen is a reliable and efficient advocate.
I'm glad I had him pursuing my case.
Stephen has my recommendation unequivocally.
I have been priviledged to know Stephen for some four decades, first as a fellow student at Stanford University istarting in the 1970s and then, when I needed counsel in both legal and financial areas, I turned to Stephen for help. On the verge of losing my home and in deep distress, I contacted Stephen for guidance in saving my home and rebuilding my life. With assuredness, sympathy and integrity, Stephen addressed my problems and helped me steer my life in a new direction. In sum, I am blessed with a wonderful family and a damn good lawyer, and I am glad to have this opportunity to publically acknowledge Mr. Benda for his excellent work on my behalf.
Mr. Benda was kind, thoughtful and a exceptionally thorough attorney. After having just lost my husband, Mr. Benda took time to ensure that I fully understood my situation amidst of a very trying time. He was clear, candid and forthright in our dealings and took the extra time to explain and ensure that he gave me clear explanations when I had questions.
I would highly recommend Mr. Benda to any and all of my friends.
This was a great experience. STEPHEN made something as embarrassing as going through a bankruptcy simple and comfortable.
I was really impressed with Mr. Benda's knowledge and proficiency during our case. He's analytical skills and technical proficiency where used to prepare and present our case resulting in a smooth and flawless resolution. I would highly recommend him!
Collection of a judgment from my former tenants seemed a formidable task at best. Mr. Benda was contacted and did a fantastic job of having the tenants' employers abide by the judgment and start the collection process. I would highly recommend him.
Mr. Benda helped my wife and I out of a financial jam, a tax nightmare. His creativity and thoughtfulness saved our butts after two foreclosures threatened to saddle us with "income" that would have saddled us for years.
As a large financial institution located in the Mid-West it was necessary for us to hire legal council in the San Francisco Bay area to represent us in a case where we were seeking the return of a substantial amount of funds. Through a local contact we were referred to attorney, Stephen Benda, to represent us in the retrieving of the funds in question. Mr. Benda was focused and meticulous in the process. His professionalism in handling this matter was greatly appreciate,especially by our organization, as we were not located close geographically.
Mr. Benda provided helpful forensic financial analysis to the case and gave strategic guidance in tackling the issues at hand which was invaluable throughout the law suite and mediation process. Mr. Benda was a gentleman and provided a unique level of wit and insight to the situation. The ultimate results of the mediation hearing were very satisfactory to our organization. Mr. Benda's followup once an agreement had been reached displayed true care and concern that things were completed and that the process moved forward appropriately.
I would highly recommend Stephen Benda as an attorney and feel fortunate to have worked with him.
I will always be grateful to Stephen for his help when I needed a lawyer for a financial predicament I was in. He has a brilliant legal mind and I was amazed at the strategy he came up with in winning my case. Throughout the proceeding I had the feeling I was in good hands and that I could completely trust in how he handled the case. His fee was very reasonable and well worth the legal service he provided.
Stephen is a rare breed.... He cares about his clients, has a very "hands on" approach and is fearless in representing his clients. He will take on a bigger institution without hesitation. I would recommend him highly to anyone who wants an attorney that will personally be involved from start to finish!
